Dear Coastal,

Wow – all I can say is that our church loves them some WINGS!  I think we collectively ate somewhere between 2-3000 wings last Sunday for Wing Fest!  Thanks again to everyone who participated!  It made for quite the memorable Father’s Day!  Last week my message was a challenging one geared toward men.  Well, this week it’s the Ladie’s turn.  Ladies, don’t miss it!

I know it’s hard to believe (haha) – but I turn 50  next Saturday, July 1st (50 is the new 30 anyway right?)!  Well, you’re all invited to PARTY & CELEBRATE with me one week from today, next Friday, June 30th, 7-9pm at the church!  There will be plenty of FOOD, CAKE, & MUSIC!  No childcare – but the whole family is welcome!  It will be a great night to hang out and have some fun!  I would love for you to come!

Friday’s 5:

  1. Interested in offically making Coastal your church home?  Our next Membership Class is this coming Monday night, June 26th, 6pm-9pm.  Childcare and refreshments provided. You can sign up online, on your Connect Card on Sunday, or respond to this email.
  2. On Tuesday, June 27th, we’re paying for anyone who wants to go see the newly released “Cars 3” at the 12:30pm matinee show at the Citadel Mall Theater. Come to the Theater and pick up your FREE Ticket from Coastal!
  3. After our “At the Movies!” series, we’ll be in another Coastal Summer Sermon Series tradition called, “Summer Reading.”  Each week I’ll be using a the subject matter from one of 6 different books as the subject matter for that Sunday’s message.  All 6 of the books are books that I recommend and are definitely worth reading.  The 6 Books this Summer are:  “The Prodigal God” by Tim Keller, “Accidental Pharisees” by Larry Osborne, “The Greatness Principle” by Nelson Searcy, “The Case for Christ” by Lee Strobel, “Grave Robber” by Mark Batterson, and “God Will Use This For Good” by Max Lucado.  Happy Reading!  Remember, “Leaders are Readers!”
  4. ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN for this Summer’s VBS!  This year’s theme is “Maker Fun Factory: Created by God – Built for a Purpose.”  The Dates for VBS are July 17-21, 6-8pm for children 4 years old – 5th Grade.  Register today and help us spread the word! There will be a volunteer insert in this Sunday’s bulletin.  VBS is “all hands on deck” at Coastal!  We need everyone to volunteer in some way to help make VBS a success.  Make sure you fill out and turn in the VBS Voluteer Insert in your Sunday Program.

  5. Speaking of VBS – there is a Crew Leader Volunteer Meeting this Saturday morning, June 24th, 10am-11:30am!

All In!
