Coastal Community Church has a thriving, vibrant Student Ministry (6th-12th Grade)!  The Student Ministry at Coastal is appropriately called “WAVES.”  The connection is obvious with the name of our church being Coastal.  However, the meaning of WAVES is deeper than that.  Ever been to a sporting event, a concert, or an arena with huge crowd of people and someone starts the WAVE?  Where does that movement typically start?  As the saying goes, “The WAVE starts in the Student section!”  We believe that the WAVE of change starts with this generation!  Students are not the church of tomorrow.  They are the church of today!

Isaiah 51:15, “For I am the LORD your God, who churns up the sea so that its WAVES roar — the LORD Almighty is his name.”

WAVES Summer Schedule


During the school year, WAVES has two main events so to speak – WAVES 6.2.SIX and WAVES HouseParty.


6.2.SIX is the weekly gathering of Coastal Students for a time of Fellowship, Fun, Worship, Teaching, and Small Groups.  6.2.SIX meets every Wednesday night @ Coastal 6-8:15pm. Snacks and occasionally dinner is provided!

HouseParty is strictly a time to hang out and have fun!  Sometimes there are organized games or a bonfire, but there is always great food and music.  It’s a time to relax, kick back, have fun, and meet other Students just like you!  HouseParty meets on the 4th Friday of every month during the school year at the church (or sometimes at other announced locations) from 6pm-9pm.
