Dear Coastal,

I’m excited about this Sunday!  We kick off a new series on the book/life of Job!  I’m excited for several reasons:  one, in 25 years of ministry I’ve never preached a series on Job;  two, Job suffered greatly and there are a lot of people who come to Coastal in great pain;  three, God blessed the second half of Job’s life more than the first and God is not done with YOU!

This Sunday is also Time Change Sunday – so you get an extra hour of sleep!  No one should be late!  And we have a small gift for everyone at Coastal this Sunday – an early Christmas present of sorts – a NEW COASTAL T-SHIRT!  If you’re around the church today (Friday) feel free to pick yours up!  It’s a new “I Love My Church” shirt!

Here are 5 Things I want you to make note of:

  1. This is the last week to bring gifts for “Operation Christmas Child” Bring toys and other items to fill a shoebox. Our wrapping & packing party will be Saturday morning, November 8th, 10am-Noon.
  2. Interested in formalizing your commitment to Coastal?  Want to officially join the Coastal family?  Make plans to attend our next Membership Class on Monday night, November 3rd, from 6pm-9pm.  Childcare and refreshments provided.  You can sign up on our website or on your Connect Card.
  3. We’re having an “All In” Meeting/Pizza Party on Friday night, November 7th, 6:30pm-8:30pm specifically for new people who have not yet participated in “All In” and would like to learn more about what we’re doing and how you can help.  You can sign up on your Connect Card on Sunday.
  4. If you are interested in possibly Leading, Assisting, or Hosting a LIFE Group in the 2015 Winter/Spring Semester, please join us for an Oyster Roast/Info Meeting on Friday Night, November 14th, 6:30pm-8:30pm.
  5. My Wednesday Morning Men’s Group is pressure washing the outside of our building on Saturday morning (tomorrow – weather permitting) at 8am.  Love for you to join us, especially if you have a sprayer or a pressure washing machine!

Have a great weekend!  Can’t wait to see you and your friends on Sunday!
