Dear Coastal,

How about the weather this week in Charleston!?  I LOVE IT!  I hope you’ve been able to eat your lunch outside or maybe take a walk.  I don’t know about you, but I’m chomping at the bit for TIME CHANGE (just a couple of weeks away) and the longer days!

The other thing this weather has gotten me excited about is EASTER AT COASTAL!  I can’t wait!  Last year we had 3 services and broke 1,000 in attendance for the first time in the history of our church!  This year we’re having 4 services: Friday, March 30, 7pm;  Sunday, April 1st, 8am, 9:30am, 11:15am.  Our goal is to break 1200!  We’re using FREE Tickets for our Easter services!!  Not only are they a great invite tool, but they also help us to gauge when a particular service is going to be full.  You can register for your FREE Easter Service Tickets from our website:  Spread the word and start registering NOW!

Whatever you do, don’t miss this Sunday at Coastal!  It’s “D-Day!”  We’re in week 3 of “Financial Freedom” and we’re going to be talking about getting out of debt!  (By the way, 291 people are participating in this year’s Easter Fast!)

Friday’s 5:

  1. Our next Newcomer’s Reception is THIS Sunday, February 25th, immediately after our 11:15am service (it’s only about 30 minutes).  Childcare and pizza are provided.  You can sign up for our Newcomer’s Reception on our website or simply by responding to this email now.  This is a great opportunity for anyone new to Coastal to meet our Staff, our Ministry Leaders, and learn more about Coastal!  It’s a great introduction to Coastal!
  2. Looking for a way to serve our community and make an IMPACT?  Come and be a part of Saturday Serve!  Saturday Serve meets the first Saturday of every month (the next one is March 3rd) at 8:30am in the Welcome Center.  They explain all the different opportunities that day, pray, and then send everyone off.  For more information or to share any ideas or to be added to a “Saturday Serve” Group, contact Kiersten Brown 918-798-7299 or  You can also visit our website each month to check out the different areas of service:
  3. Want to feel more comfortable in sharing your story and your faith with people God puts in your life?  Want to feel like you’re ready and prepared to make an IMPACT?  Then sign up for our IMPACT Seminar, Friday night, March 9th, 6pm-9pm at the church. We’ll provide childcare and food!  Sign on up on your Connect Card or respond to this email (we already have 67 people registered!).
  4. Digital Giving allows you to give as God blesses you.  There are multiple ways to give digitally at Coastal.  You can give through our website, our App, or TEXT any amount to 843-277-8337!  It’s simple, safe, secure, and convenient!  Give it a try today!
  5. Don’t forget that Coastal has a fully stocked Food Bank. If you or any one you know is in need, please drop by and pick up some food – Monday-Friday 9am-4pm.  Spread the word!
