We are moving boldly into our future, believing that Seacoast Church will continue to be a place that helps more and more people find God, grow their faith, discover their purpose, and make a difference. With a record number of first-time guests coming through our doors, we believe more than ever that the most important next step we can take is expanding our Mount Pleasant location.
When Seacoast began in 1988, there were 24,000 people living in Mount Pleasant. Today, the town is bursting at the seams, with the Census Bureau estimating that over 81,000 people call Mount Pleasant home. Mount Pleasant isn’t going to stop growing anytime soon. The question is, “Will Seacoast be a church they can call home?” If the answer is “Yes!” then we need to make sure there is enough room for all of the people looking for that church home.
To do that, we will need a new worship facility and lobby, additional parking and to renovate the existing spaces to better serve our children and students. The cost to make this vision a reality is $28 million. Our goal is to raise $13 million and finance the remaining $15 million to be repaid by 2023. As of January, 2017 we have raised over $6.5 million. Our first milestone this year is to raise $8 million by the end of April, 2017, enabling us to start the foundation of the new building.
Seacoast exists because of a God-given vision. Through the years, people just like you have come alongside that vision and helped create a place where others are able to encounter God each weekend. We want to invite you to be a part of what God is going to do at Seacoast in the future. We are going to see thousands of lives changed for eternity and you can be a part of that by committing to give sacrificially to Imagine over the next year.
For some of us it might be as simple as giving up a latte or two per week. For others it might mean delaying a purchase or repurposing resources. Each person’s commitment will look different, as God speaks to all of us individually. All we ask is that you prayerfully consider what you would be able to give over the next year, fill out the commitment card and being to faithfully walk out your commitment. By taking this step of faith, you get to be a part of an incredible story.

The calculator below is a tool for you to use as you consider your regular giving at Seacoast and your commitment to Imagine. First, enter your annual income in the field provided. Then, see what your contributions would be at various percentages of your income. If you are currently an occasional giver, what would your contributions look like at an intentional level? Or what increase in giving would it take to move from being intentional to tithing — or from tithing to extravagant? For some of us extravagant might not be defined by a percentage, but by a giving goal that stretches our faith significantly.
We’ve made it easy to give, so choose whatever works best for you. You can give online, via text message, and at any of our locations.
