Christmas doesn’t always feel like the most wonderful time of the year. Obligations, money, family drama, and loved ones who are not around can make us feel sad and stressed out. But what if there was a way for us to have a deep joy that overcomes all of these circumstances? Join us all month long as we explore a different approach to Christmas this year.



This years annual tradition has a special twist. On top of the desserts, chocolate fountain, coffee, cider and more, our Coastal Kids Ministry will be performing an original Christmas production! Parents please have your child at the church by 6:30 pm. Doors will open at 6:50 pm and the play will begin shortly after 7 pm.


For God to get something into your hands, they first have to be open! 
Blessed people, bless people.

2018 Goal:

Amazing Love
The ministry provides food, clothing, linens, shoes, backpacks, blankets etc. to anyone who comes to the ministry in need. Showers are now available and the ministry serves anywhere from 150-200 people a hot meal on Monday nights.

Christian Social Services 
Provides food, clothing and related services for disadvantaged men, women and children in our local area.

The Shepherd Center
Provides compassion, basic support, and assistance to those in our community who need it most. They focus on families, the elderly, and the homeless. They feed the hungry, clothe the poor, and empower people to seek independence.

Foster Family 
We want to bless a family here at the Suncoast who has taken on two foster kids recently.

Our goal as a church is to create relevant environments in which God can work. Our lobby is the first environment guests walk into, and after 7 years it needs some TLC. We’d also like to turn this space into a community hub of sorts where people could work or hold meetings during the week.

Just like we were able to sponsor several community events and financially support families in 2018 without having to blast the need all over social media, we believe 2019 will hold opportunities that will require quick action and resources not in the regular budget.

How to give: 
Everything given on Christmas Eve will go towards this goal. You can also add “Christmas Offering” to your check in the memo, or the comments section of an online gift.


Help us meet our communities most basic needs because we believe blessed people bless people! Bring any of the following items to Next Steps in the lobby each Sunday:

New socks
New underwear
Gently used clothing

Canned Vegetables
Canned Fruit
Canned Tomatoes
Spaghetti Sauce
PB & J
Canned Meats
