Easter Weekend (Friday, April 2nd-Sunday, April 4th) is now just 17 days away!  It’s time to start inviting your friends and getting the word out.  And that’s where we need your help!  First of all, drop by the church this week and pick up EasterAtCoastal.com yard signs!  Put one in your yard and then strategically place others in neighborhoods, shopping centers, high traffic areas, and intersections.  Take a picture of your signs and share it on social media with the hashtag #easteratcoastal.  

We have a little Easter book that we want to give to you as a gift as you finish out your Easter Fast and for you to give to a friend. The book is entitled, “At the Cross.” It looks at the different people who were at the cross with Jesus.  The last chapter is entitled, “You, At the Cross.”  It’s a great tool for sharing the Gospel with someone.  You can pick all of this up at the church during the week.  We even have a stack of books and yard signs available on the front porch of the church for pick up after office hours.  

We also need you to go to our Easter at Coastal webpage and click on the “Download Shareable Easter Invite Images for Social Media” button.  A zip file containing a folder of 10 different images will automatically download on your computer.  Or you can simply click on this link and download them now!  Start using these images on Facebook and Instagram to get the word out and invite people to Coastal for Easter.  

While you’re on our Easter At Coastal page, go ahead and register for the service you and your family and friends are planning to attend!  That way we can spread everyone out and let people know when a service is reaching capacity.  Make sure you connect with your Ministry Leader and sign up now to serve at one or more of our services.  If you are not serving in a Ministry, Easter is a great time to get started!  Most importantly, bathe all of this in prayer!  Ask God to use our church to draw people to Himself and to prepare the hearts and minds of everyone we will be reaching out to.  I love you Coastal and I love being your Pastor!  Happy Easter – Christ is Risen!  Let’s celebrate!

Pastor Chris

P.S. I want to challenge you to give toward our “Daring Faith” offering for Easter Weekend.  Because a large number of people stepped out in faith and gave to “Daring Faith,” our church was able to begin our construction project.  You can visit our Daring Faith page on our website to learn more about the project.  It’s slated to be complete in late August!  Easter Weekend would be a great time for you and your family to give above and beyond as a step of faith toward this project.  You can give through our website, our App, or TEXT any amount to 843-277-8337. It’s simple, safe, secure, and convenient!
