Coastal At Home

Coastal is our church home, but we believe we can have a location right where you are.

One of the incredible things about the time we live is that the Church is not limited by buildings or geography. We love gathering together in person, but that isn’t possible for everyone, all the time. Our hope is that Coastal at Home gives everyone the chance to gather together in worship, connect with others, and find resources that will encourage and enrich them.

Practice hospitality.
Whether you are able to experience service with a couple of friends, or whether we’re all staying in our homes for a season, find ways to get to know the people you are worshipping with, even if it’s all online.

Set the tone.
Be the leader in your home. Help everyone stay focused on the service and be ready afterwards to answer questions.
