Don’t miss this Sunday as we kick off our new series “Old School – Today’s Questions, Yesterday’s Stories.” It’s going to be a lot of fun! We’re going to do a lot of creative stuff with decorations, music, and multi-media. The band is really jacked! Come early – you’re going to want to hear their opening song every week. Also, I need old pictures of Coastal folks from “back in the day” (High School, prom, sports, etc.).
Now obviously, “Old School” means different things to different people depending on your frame of reference. Andy Griffith or The Cosby Show. Poodle Skirts, Bell Bottoms, or Leggings. Albums, 8-Tracks, or CD’s. Beatles, Bee Gees, or Backstreet Boys. The Twist, The Hustle, or The Running Man.
Romans 15:3 says, “For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.” That’s what we’re going to do in this series. We’re going to go back and take a look at what was written in the past – the first 5 books of the Old Testament – and see how it applies to our lives today. The stage design, music, and multi-media that we’ll be using in this series – these are just fun, creative methods of communication. These are simply tools that change with the times, just like music, fashion, t.v., dance, and technology have changed. The message, however, never changes. It is the message – the Gospel, God’s Word – that changes lives. It is the message that teaches, encourages, gives us endurance, and hope. And that’s what Coastal is all about – changing lives!
So, get your friends here this Sunday! Pray. Invite. Invite. Invite! God is doing something here at Coastal. Get on board and join us in this adventure! How quickly will we go to multiple services? How quickly will we average over 150 and then 200? How quickly will we add a 3rd service? And when will it be? How about a Saturday night service? How big is your dream for Coastal? See you Sunday! Join me in living the dream!
