Similar to the big project last March, we will be working with 8 Days of Hope in a massive coordinated push to help our community. We are asking local volunteers to commit 3 days during the Oct 13-20th window. The days do not have to be consecutive and you can sleep at home. Meals, projects, and a T-shirt are provided. There is no cost to volunteer, but you must register by Oct 7th. Visit www.eightdaysofhope.com.
Community Groups are small group Bible studies that meet in homes across the island.

Our desire is to create environments that enhance the opportunities to lead students into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. We have been blessed with the opportunity to do summer camps for middle and high school students for more than 25 years, and we are more committed then ever before to creating the best camp experience for your students to experience Christ. We are so grateful to all the churches that have trusted us with their students over the years.

How do I sign up?
Everyone involved in a Youth, College, or Adult C-Group will be registered automatically for a project through their group. C-Group participants DO NOT need to register separately. If you are not in a C-Group, you can register individually or as a family beginning Sunday, April 22 at the Servolution Table. Servolution T-shirts are available for $5. Contact Jay Blackburn for more information.
What type of projects are available?
Most projects involve light construction, landscaping, or cleaning. They are designed to be completed by 12:00 pm.
Where do my kids go?
Children (birth through 3rd grade) are invited to participate in KidsServe2. Volunteers will be on hand to help them work on fun, age-appropriate projects at Scott Middle School (4116 Avenue N 1/2) from 8:30 am – 12:15 pm. Older kids and teenagers are encouraged to serve alongside their parents. Kids 1st – 3rd grade also have the option of serving with their parents.

Unreasonable Parenting Conferences combine the lessons learned in full-time residential child/teen rescue with raising our own six children to adulthood. The truth is, it takes raising kids to learn how to raise kids, but by the time the lessons are learned, the kids are grown and gone. An Unreasonable Parent is the one who cares deeply about who their child is becoming. Unreasonable Parenting Conferences will give you shoulders to stand on if you are just beginning your journey as a parent, and it will provide you with a map if you are having trouble navigating your way through the teen or emerging adult years.
Chick Night is a fun way to connect with other women and with God. Ladies of all ages are invited to come together for a night of worship, teaching, and friendship.

Coastal will begin worshipping at the old Scott Middle School (4116 Ave N 1/2) across from Ball High on Jan 7, 2018. The change of venue will allow for increased parking and meeting space, some equipment to remain setup, and a significant cost savings. The larger space will also allow us to go down to two worship services — 9:00 am and 10:30 am.
