We need your help! I am reaching out everyone at Coastal to help us provide a wonderful Christmas to the residents of Joseph Floyd Manor.  Joseph Floyd Manor is a public housing building in downtown Charleston. It is home primarily to limited income, disabled, and older residents of our city.  Coastal is partnering with “Friends of Joseph Floyd Manor” (one of our many ministry partners) to host a Christmas Party at the manor on Saturday, December 18th, from 9:30am (meet at the church at 9:30am) until 1:30pm. We’re hoping to provide a huge holiday meal with turkey & all the trimmings, a Christmas stocking packed with goodies, and a Christmas gift for every resident! This is a wonderful opportunity because the gifts are actual items the residents have requested.  What’s important to know is the Christmas party we’re hosting on the 18th will be the only Christmas many of these residents will experience.  It’s a great opportunity for us, as a church, to truly be the hands and feet of Jesus!

Picture in your mind all the gifts, stockings, food, a Christmas cookie decoration station, games with prizes, and a coffee & hot chocolate bar!  And then we’ll top off the event with singing Christmas carols!  This will be an event that will positively impact the community and help the residents of the manor feel loved and appreciated.  And by the way, this event is family friendly and all are welcome (a great way to show your kids the true meaning of Christmas). 

Now, a project this size needs two things:

  1. Lots of volunteers!  We want to flood Joseph Floyd Manor with love.  Go to our website, give us your contact info, scroll down to this event/date & click, and then scroll down and hit the “click here to register” button. 
  2. An event this size also requires lots of supplies and resources. Your help is needed to help provide the meal (right now probably the biggest need), the gifts, the Christmas cookie decorating supplies, and the goodies for the stockings (see sign up lists below). 

 There are multiple sign up lists to help out:

If you have any questions about this event, please respond to this email or reach out to Pastor Chris Jones at 843-870-4613.

Merry Christmas!
Pastor Chris

P.S.  Again, right now the food for the meal is probably the biggest need.  Go to this link and sign up today:  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0C4CADA929ABF58-christmas
