Dear Coastal,

That’s right – only 2 Worship Services this Sunday for Memorial Weekend – 10:15am & 11:45am.  We’ll be continuing our Battlefield series with a message on Temptation.  We’ll also have a time to recognize and pray for those who serve or have served in the Military.  Hope to see you Sunday!

The Summer is just about here!  To kick off the Summer, on Sunday, June 8th, we roll out one of our favorite series here at Coastal:  “At the Movies!”  It’s where we use current blockbuster movies as a “hook” to talk about spiritual truth and we do it in true Coastal style.  We’ll have a lot fun, give away a lot of stuff (all 1st time guests get FREE movie tickets to Citadel Mall Theater), eat a lot of popcorn, and most importantly point people to Jesus!  Invite and bring your friends!

And then to make June 8th even more AWESOME, we’re having a Beach Baptism at Folly Beach County Park at 5pm! If you’d like to get Baptized in the ocean at Folly Beach, you can sign up on Sunday on your Connect Card, you can sign up online, or you can simply respond to this email.  Come early, bring your “beach stuff”, and enjoy the day with your Coastal friends and family!  We’ve got 50 free parking passes to the 1st 50 people that want them!  On the weekend, unless you have a Park Pass that’s a $10 value that we’re giving away for FREE.

Here are 5 more things I want you to know about:

  1. LIFE Group Sign-Up has begun!  You can register online today or this Sunday at church.  LIFE Groups begin the week of June 8th!
  2. Student LIFE Missions Camp balane due this Sunday!  Please see Pastor Scott with payment and any questions.
  3. BIG SUR “Student Ultimate Relay” this Wednesday, May 28th, 6:26pm-8:15pm.  High School (wear blue) vs. Middle School (wear red) in the ultimate relay.  Wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty or wet.  There will be food!
  4. On Father’s Day, June 15th we are having another Baby/Child Dedication Service during the 11:45am service.  Sign up on your Connect Card on Sunday or respond to this email if you are interested in participating.
  5. VBS this year is July 21st-25th!  This year’s theme is, “Weird Animals – Where Jesus’ Love Is One of a Kind.”  Our VBS Closing Program will be Sunday night, July 27th.  We are in need of 100 pool noodles for VBS – green, yellow, orange, purple or blue.  If you’d like to volunteer for VBS, please fill out the VBS Volunteer Insert in the bulletin and place it in the offering plate on Sunday!

Always & Forever All In!

Pastor Chris

P.S.  Mark Sunday, July 6th (4th of July Weekend) on your calendars!  We’re going to have 1 combined outdoor service & a barbeque!
