small groups

We have some amazing small groups that are ongoing through the year and some offered that during one of  our semester (Spring, Summer or Fall).  Our small groups are open to everyone. 

Below is a list of our small group that we offer.  If you are interested  in any of these groups, email us or the host of the small group or call our office at 850-916-0346.

  • "Two or More" Intercessory Prayer Ministry - year round

    Jesus said in Matthew 18:19-20


    Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”


    Coast Community Church is founded and firmly rooted in

    Prayer and it is our desire to be a house and a people of

    Prayer.  Our heart is for God's Will to be done in our Church, our Community and World, "As it is in Heaven".  


    Two or More is a Prayer Ministry that meets before Church on

    Sunday Mornings from 8:45-9:15.  Join us in the front foyer of the main Kids Church room as we seek the heart of God together in Prayer

    Bible Study for this Semester

    Don't Give The Enemy A Seat At Your Table: 


    Our minds spin seemingly out of control with thoughts that are not only unproductive, but potentially destructive and harmful.


    These thoughts are not of God. They’re from the Enemy lurking, ready to seize any opportunity to lie his way into your mind and claim control over your life.


    But God has other plans for you, better plans, where you can experience intimacy, rest, and joy beyond your circumstances.


    In Don’t Give the Enemy a Seat at Your Table Pastor Louie Giglio uses Psalm 23 as a framework to offer biblical insight on how to…


     Cancel the lies that will wreck your life and take the empowering steps to live fully alive in Christ


     Stop the spiral of shame,

    temptation, and insecurity


     Restore peace and rest in your life


     Embrace the true purpose behind your journey through

    challenging circumstances


     Break free from the endless cycle of destructive thinking and

    recapture your freedom to your thoughts and emotions


    These things are possible if you allow Jesus, the Shepherd, to lead the battle for your mind and heart.  Join us as together, we learn to claim our God given victory over the enemy in every area of our lives.

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.


    Coast Student Ministry ministers to youth in grades 7-12 and provides a place where they can grow in their Christian faith.


    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
