Christmas at Coker

It is a season of celebration as we prepare for the arrival of our New Born King, the Messiah. Praise will fill the air this Advent season through our sermon series titled: “Do You Hear What I Hear? A Musical Journey Through Advent.” Many of our advent happenings have become a tradition (or can become your new tradition). Gather together with us for Family Advent, the Students’ Progressive Dinner, the Christmas at Coker Concert, Las Posadas, the Advent Art Exhibit and Christmas Eve. Celebrate a loved one by dedicating a poinsettia in their honor. Most of all, celebrate our Savior for His gift of salvation to the world.

Los Posadas

Dec 15th | 6 PM | Las Posadas
An Advent Service in the Hispanic tradition that recalls Mary’s and Joseph’s search for shelter in Bethlehem. Worshipers follow the Holy Family as they visit several innkeepers looking, unsuccessfully, for shelter. They finally find room and are welcomed into a manger. Our evening begins with a service in the Sanctuary and is followed by a fiesta with tamales, fun, music, door prizes, photo booth with Santa, and a piñata for the kids.

15 de Diciembre, 6PM, Las Posadas
Las Posadas es un servicio de Adviento en la tradición hispana que recuerda a María y José buscando posada en Belén. Los partícipes siguen a la Sagrada Familia en su búsqueda de posada, mas no logran encontrar posada. Finalmente, encuentran posada en un pesebre. Nuestra evento empieza con un servicio en el santuario, seguido por una fiesta con tamales, diversión, música, premios, foto con Santa Clos, y una piñata para los niños.
