Who can be a host?
Anyone that is a member or regular attendee of Coastline and over the age of 16 can host a group.
What is this study about?
Throughout this six-session video-based study, you are going to discover the answer to life’s most fundamental question: “What on earth am I hear for?” And here’s a clue to the answer: It’s not about you. You were created by God and for God, and until you understand that, life will never make sense. It is only in God that we discover our origin, our identity, our meaning, our purpose, our significance, and our destiny. The weekly topics include: You Matter to God, Worship – You Were Planned for God’s Pleasure, Fellowship – You Were Formed for God’s Family, Discipleship – You Were Created to Become Like Christ, Ministry – You Were Shaped for Serving God, Evangelism – You Were Made for a Mission.
What is required as a host?
Create a welcoming environment where fellowship can occur. Together, you’ll watch a 30-minute video, fill in the blanks in your workbook, and discuss collectively what was learned. There is no homework required.
How much do the study guides and videos cost?
We will provide the study guides for you and your group, and the weekly videos will be streamed online at no cost.
How do I get started?
First, register your group below, attend one of our Host Trainings (dates below), make sure you have a laptop to stream the weekly videos with your group, pick up a copy of “What on Earth Am I Here For?” book if you’d like to read it on your own, and get ready for an awesome semester!
Where can my group meet?
The choice is yours. Nowhere is off limits! Many groups meet at the beach, a park, a restaurant, a coffee shop, or in homes. We will not be hosting any groups on the Coastline campus as we want to take this 6-week season to be in our homes and communities.
How often should my group meet?
Your group begins the week of June 18 and will end the week of July 23. We recommend meeting for 1-2 hours every week. This gives your group members ample time to discuss the reading material, but also gives them an opportunity to open up and share what’s really going on in their lives - giving you the time to pray and encourage each other.
Who can come to my group?
Anyone can join your group! You do not have to attend Coastline to be a part.
How do I invite others to my group?
A personal invitation is encouraged, but a personal email or text is always better than a group email.
What if we have children?
There is no childcare provided by church, but you can always have the kids play in the backyard while the parents meet inside!
Who can attend my group?
Anyone is invited, but feel free to make your group your own! Some ideas: college students, co-workers, neighbors, women, men, or married couples.
What happens if I need to miss a week?
You can find someone else in your group to take the lead while you’re gone.
