  • The Renewing of the Mind Project

    Do you ever feel like you’ll never change? Maybe you’ve been struggling with the same sin for years. Or you’re stuck in the grip of a negative emotion. Or you’ve been trying to start a habit, but it’s not happening. You feel like you’ll never change.


    But here’s the truth: God is powerful and He wants to help you. This book is all about

    going to God for help with transformation. You’ll learn how to:


     Break that habit you thought you’d never break.

     Gain victory over negative emotions like anger, worry, and insecurity.

     Start life-enriching habits, such as

    having a daily quiet time.

     Follow through on that goal you’ve always wanted to pursue.




    Meeting the 1st & 3rd Tuesday at Coast Community Church at 6:30 - 8:30


    Led by Cheri King

  • Becoming Women Warriors

    Women in Christ, let’s dive deep into God’s  word. As we unpack scripture together, lets  learn from God’s word and each other. We each have unique strengths and struggles.  Life can be hard sometimes, so let’s dive in and remember that together we are stronger.


    We will be focusing on specific scriptures on  the following topics: Love & Inner Beauty, God’s Love, Provision & Faithfulness,  Adversity & Trials,  Awe & Sovereignty, Fear, Strength Through Faith, and lastly, Grace & Forgiveness.


    Meeting the 2nd and 4th Wednesday at Coast Community Church from 6:30-8:30

    (in the Sanctuary).


    Led by Ellen McDaris

    For more information contact Ellen at, 850-221-0180


    Note: Bring your husbands, boyfriends, male friends, etc. for the Men’s “Real Men Pray Dangerously” Small Group going on at the same time at Coast in the Kid’s Splash Zone.


  • Surrendered

    Are you disappointed by unchanging circumstances? Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase, “Let go and let God,” which suggests that surrender is God’s path for peace for your life. It maybe true, but it’s easier said than done, isn’t it?

    In this six-week Bible study, you’ll learn how to let go by exploring Jesus’ time of testing in the wilderness. As you look to his example, you’ll discover six principles that will equip you to let God lead you to victory as you deal with the problems and pain you are facing. Along the way, you’ll compare Jesus’ responses to those of the Israelites, who also faced a long wilderness season

    centuries earlier.

    This study will equip you to give up control, reach for God, let go of fear, and experience the blessings of the surrendered life. It’s possible to let go and live like Jesus and the result is experience God’s power and peace as never before.


    Meeting the 2nd & 4th Tuesday at Coast Community Church from 6:30-8:30 pm.

Dream Teams

  • Dream Teams Description

    1st Impressions is dedicated to Christ-like hospitality. We serve through greeting, ushering, communion, preparation, & clean up


    Coast Kids -  provides safe, fun and Bible based ministry to infant-kindergartners and  ministers to children grades 1-6 through Bible based teaching, worship, prayer and provides a fun and exciting environment.

    Worship- open to all musicians (vocal & instrumental) for the purpose of worshipping God and leading others to worship God.


    Production Team provides sound, lighting, audio & video editing through the media arts.


    Small groups have one simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe that God created us to live in relationship with others, and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren't always easy to find. That's why small groups exist -- to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.


    Administrative & Facilities - filing, answering phones, website management, office upkeep, data entry, and so much more are the backbone of what keeps us going.


    Facilities - grounds upkeep, building maintenance and other behind the scenes tasks are a major part of this ministry.


    Outreach- We offer various outreaches that, while meeting physical, social and spiritual needs, point to the one thing that eternally provides for the soul- the Good News of Jesus Christ.


    Prayer Team- At Coast, prayer is an essential part of everything we do. This team is dedicated to praying for the needs of others and we have teams that pray during the week and at the close of service.


    Events Team- When we have events such as a cookout or a festival, this team oversees the entirety of it and provides total support from beginning to end.


    Growth Track Serve Team- This team provides support for the Growth Track by way of hospitality and administrative support.


    Missions Team- Coast is committed to following the Biblical mandate of taking the Good News of Jesus Christ to our local community, our nation, and the world.  In that effort Coast has, since it began, joyfully sponsored full-time missionaries who are "on the field" in various parts of the world. We also try to venture out with groups on a variety of short-term missions around the globe every year.


    Made with Love - Coast’s food pantry that provides food for those in need and relief bags for the homeless. We make a difference in the community.   Vision “The poor you will always have with you, and you can help them any time you want. But you will not always have me.” Mark 14:7
