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!
