Connecting at Coker | 1-Time-Class for Newcomers Jan 16th | 6:30 PM
Connecting at Coker is a great way to see a birds-eye view of Coker. You will learn a quick history on Methodism, on Coker as a Church, and on the different areas of where you and your family can plug-in. Additionally, we will introduce the Coker Core program which is a 4-week and 5-step program to dive deeper into beliefs, scripture, and life-practices in order to better equip you as a disciple of Jesus. For details and to register, contact  

Coker Core | 4-Week-Course Beginning Jan 23rd | 6:30 PM

The Coker Core is a 5 step guided plan to help people with their faith walk, from the first steps of membership at Coker toward becoming a mature disciple of Jesus Christ. These first five steps are an intentional pathway to give prospective members a wide view of how the ministries of Coker are designed to draw people closer to Christ and deeper in their faith. Week One entails explaining the overall plan. Week Two explores Beliefs, Week Three explores Scripture, and Week Four explores Life Practices. Once you have completed the four week course, step five is a one-on-one meeting with the pastor of your choice to discuss where you currently are in your faith journey and where you would like to grow over the next year. After this meeting, the pastor will take time to review your conversation and create a personalized plan for each of you to begin growing toward your goal of becoming a more mature, intentional disciple of Jesus Christ. A second meeting will then take place to discuss this plan with you along with some detail of what specific steps that can be taken next. For details and to register, contact
