Dear Coastal,

There’s “Black Friday”, “Cyber Monday” and today is typically called, “Giving Tuesday”!  Regardless of what labels we assign these days, the reality is that more people will buy more stuff online this week and over the next month than any other time of the year. That’s not a bad thing, but it isn’t eternal.  Our church exists to share and experience the LIFE and LOVE of Jesus with Charleston & the world –  and that IS eternal!

So, while you are shopping online over the next month, why not consider doing one of 3 things.  And here’s my CYBER OFFER: 100% of your investment will go to reaching people for Jesus!

  1. Go here and give to God through the local church from our website. The investment is eternal.  It lasts way longer than a big screen, toy, or new shoes.  You do not have to have a PayPal account to give.
  2. Many people give to Coastal with their smartphone through TEXTING!  After a one step, one time registration process (takes less than 2 minutes), you simply text any amount to 843-277-8337 and hit send.  GIVE IT A TRY!  You can give any amount, any where, any time, any place.  It is not billed to your phone.  It is through your Bank/Credit Card that you register.  It is simple, safe, and secure.
  3. If you haven’t done so already, download our church app onto your phone, ipod, or tablet.  Simply go to your app store and search for Coastal Community Church Charleston.  It’s free!  Not only is it a great way to spread the Word and keep up with all things Coastal, but you can GIVE through our app as well!  Simply click on the giving tab and follow the instructions.

Today would be a great time to start giving toward our Christmas Offering – simply use the keyword “Christmas”.  This year’s Christmas Offering is going toward our Student Ministry (Camp), our Children’s Ministry (VBS), remodeling our Coastal Kidz Building, and our Summer of IMPACT serving our community.  Our goal that enables us to fully fund each of these iniatives is $60,000!  Each and every gift counts – small and large.  We can’t all give the same amount, but we can each sacrifice.  And when all of us do that together, that’s when God does a miracle.

Happy Shopping (and Giving)!

Pastor Chris

P.S.  We’re back to our regular service times this Sunday of 9:30am and 11:15am.  We’re in a new series called, “grateful.”  I promise – you’ll be glad you came!  And make plans now to attend one of our two Familiy Christmas Eve Services, Sunday night, December 24th at 5:30pm or 7pm (no morning services).
