Note: Thank you for supporting the health and safety of all who are in community on our Coker Campus. We are encouraged that more in-person gatherings are being planned and are happening! While Texas statewide policies regarding masks, capacity, and distancing have changed, our Church Council met and determined that at this time our policies will remain the same. We will continue to require masks, ask people to remain 6’ from the person or family unit beside them, and ask that everyone limits indoor congregating. We will ask that you continue to take the precautions, whether you have been fully vaccinated or not, in order to honor and love one another and create a safe place for all to worship and be in community. Our Church Council will reconvene in May and updates to safety policies may be made at that time.

MISSION OUTREACH & COKER HEALTH & WELLNESS CENTER Coker’s health and wellness center continues to offer food services on Thursdays. We have increased sanitation and cleaning. We have also increased sanitation procedures for clients and volunteers so that we can continue distributing these much needed items. Clients are still using a drive-thru system to receive their food. Donations are still being accepted and all of our clients are very thankful for being able to receive much needed items. We are accepting monetary donations for school supplies for our backpack give-away (you can visit Coker.org/donate to give online). Note: The Pastor’s Benevolence Fund Meetings continue as well.

If you are in need of prayer or Pastoral Care, please contact Barbara Keeper. Specify if you need to be added to the prayer list or if you need to talk with a Pastor. These times are anxious and sensitive and while we put our full faith and trust in Jesus, we are happy to join you in prayer where needed. CLICK HERE to Contact Barbara Keeper
COVID-19 BEST PRACTICES
Our Top Three best practices are as follows:
1. Wear a Mask
2. Keep a social distance of 6′ or more from one another
3. Limit indoor congregating (this includes limiting time and/or capacity, booking in larger spaces, etc).
While things can feel uncertain, know that God is in control. Our goal around monitoring in-person gatherings is to keep everyone safe. Some additional best practices are:
-Follow Credible News Sources, a few are listed below. An individual’s opinions, bias research, and social media page may not be as credible as going to the sources directly (Like the NIH, World Health Organization, Etc.)
-Stay home if you or someone in your home is sick (until fever free for 24 hours).
-Wash your hands often, use hand sanitizer.
-Pray. Pray for each other, our city, health care professionals, and those who are sick or at risk.
-Praise. Thank God for the provisions He has already put in place.
