Dear Coastal Friends & Family,

Happy Cyber Monday!  I don’t know about you, but my inbox & social media have been inundated with ads for Cyber Monday.  The reality is that more people will buy more stuff online today and over the next month than any other time of the year. That isn’t a bad thing, but it isn’t eternal.  Our church exists to reach people that do not know Jesus and that IS eternal!

So, while you are shopping online today and over the next month, why not consider doing one of 3 things as we participate in Cyber Monday.  And here’s my Cyber Monday offer: 100% of your investment will go to reaching people for Jesus.

  1. Go here and give to God through the local church from our website. The investment is eternal.  It lasts way longer than an iPod, toy or winter coat.  You do not have to have a PayPal account to give.
  2. It is now possible to give to Coastal with your smartphone through TEXTING!  After a one step, one time registration process (takes less than 2 minutes), you simply text any amount to 843-277-8337and hit send.  GIVE IT A TRY!  You can give any amount, any where, any time, any place.  It is not billed to your phone.  It is through your Bank/Credit Card that you register.  It is simple, safe, and secure.
  3. If you haven’t done so already, download our church app onto your phone, ipod, or tablet.  It’s free at your app store!  It’s a great way to spread the Word and keep up with all things Coastal.  Make sure you approve push notifications.

You can also give toward our Christmas Offering this year by using the keyword “Christmas”.  This year’s Christmas Offering is going toward digging a well in Haiti, meeting the needs of at risk children/families in our community, and remodeling our children’s areas for our move into our new building.

Happy Shopping (and giving)!

Pastor Chris

P.S.  Now that the Thanksgiving Holiday has come and gone, we’d love to see on Sunday at Coastal!  We begin a new series this Sunday called, “Presence.”  Our service times are 8:45am, 10:15am, and 11:45am.  I promise – you’ll be glad you came!
