Galveston’s Coastal Community Church

The Coastal Community Church Launch Team (along with many extra BPF volunteers) has been working behind the scenes since January 1st to create a church for the unchurched in Galveston. CCC Galveston will hold its first public services on February 26th, one of two Preview Weekends, before their main launch on Easter Sunday, April 8th.

They’ll be working down to the wire these next 10 days getting the children’s building ready for the first of two Sunday morning services. If you can help, contact Tony Gryseels tlcgry@comcast.net.

Many of you have expressed an interest in attending services at our first satellite church. On a small scale, that will be very valuable. Your presence and active participation will help create a warmer sense of community there. But too many of us coming at one time has the potential to overwhelm them. So the Launch Team has asked us to limit the number of BPF folks who visit in the first few months. While that may feel unnecessarily restrictive, I assure you it’s not. CCC has a small worship center and it’s more important for the unchurched folks in Galveston to have a seat. Remember, it’s not about us.

Aaron feels they can absorb up to fifteen guests from BPF in each worship service, plus the children who may come along with them. Therefore we will have a sign-up sheet at the Next Step Center this Sunday morning for their February 26th Preview Service. If the space fills up before you can sign up, don’t worry, you’ll have many more opportunities to attend. And I want every one of you to go to a CCC Weekend Experience sometime this year.

The most important thing you can do for CCC is to pray. Pray for the Launch Team as it makes final preparations next week. Pray for boldness for those who attend to invite their unchurched friends. And pray for the people on the Island who do not know Jesus…yet. They need to know Him. And we want to introduce them.

Live bold,

Greg
