These are very difficult and stressful times to say the least.  People are fearful about the future and many people feel like they are hanging on by a thread.  One of the biggest fears people are facing right now is their finances.  Many people have lost jobs and are struggling to survive.  Even if you haven’t lost your job or are on the verge of losing your home, financial stress is typically huge for most people. However, that stress is multiplied exponentially right now.

At Coastal, WE WANT TO HELP!  I’ve got some exciting news to share with you!  Our church has decided to purchase a site license for something called, “Dave Ramsey+”.  What that means is that beginning Tuesday, September 8th, we will share an access code that makes ALL of Dave Ramsey’s best selling resources and tools available to our entire church FREE for 1 year (kind of like our access to Right Now Media)!  This includes 5 classes (Financial Peace, Legacy Journey, Smart Money Smart Kids, the Jump Start Course and a new Budgeting course), the Everydollar+ budgeting tool, and a host of other resources designed to help families track their progress through the baby steps.  If you were to sign up for this on your own it would cost $130.  NOT NOW!  All of that and more will be FREE for our entire church!  You’ll have access to everything for an entire year at your own pace, on your own schedule.

We see this as an investment in you, your finances, and your future!  It’s a way to practically express our generosity and love toward you and our community and to be a real source of help.  Think about it – what if you had gone into the “shutdown” debt free and with money in the bank?  What if you could have hope for your life, including your finances? That’s what Dave Ramsey+ is all about – giving you a plan and hope so you can experience financial peace.

By the way, we are offering a Dave Ramsey Financial Peace Virtual LIFE Group (sign up today!) this semester.  You’ll watch the videos on your own and then each week (Tuesday’s at 7pm) we’ll meet together on Zoom for discussion and accountability.  But this year, all the resources are FREE!  However, you don’t have to sign up for the Group to have access to all the material.  We will give you the link and make it available, starting Tuesday, September 8th (the day after Labor Day).  

So be on the lookout for the link and access code on September 8th!  I hope you’re as excited about this as I am.  And more importantly, I hope you’ll access the material.  We want to be known as a generous church and we also want to do everything we can to equip our church and community to experience true financial peace in these difficult times!  

I Love You & I Love Being Your Pastor!
Pastor Chris
