Ways To Give

Give In-Person

Simply place cash or checks in the offering basket at any weekend service. Be sure to include your name and address on the check or envelope so that donation credit may be provided for tax purposes.

Give Online

Online giving is a safe and easy way to invest in helping people know and follow Jesus through Coastal. It allows for a one-time or recurring gift to be deducted automatically from a bank account or credit card and only takes minutes to set up.

Some of our members use the online bill pay service through their financial institution, which can be scheduled, and mails a printed check to our offices.
