Coker Kids

The vision of Coker Kids is to plant the seeds of Christian love, to offer ways of nurturing children to grow, not only physical but spiritually. We want children to know God loves them and that they can have fun as they discover His love. Watching the seeds grow in the children is an amazing journey!

On June 9, 2018, a new Child, Youth, and Vulnerable Adult safety policy and accompanying procedures went into effect for ALL Rio Texas Churches (including Coker UMC). Every adult who works with children, youth, and/or vulnerable adults (Staff, Volunteer, Clergy, or Lay) must be certified through the new TRUSTed con Confianza certification process. This includes, but not limited to, those who volunteer with the food pantry, Eagle Pass, ERT, mission trips etc.  If you fall into any of these categories please contact Cheryl Kendall, for more information to get trained.
