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!

Nursery

The nursery ministry serves children 3 months-kindergarten during all Sunday church worship services. For special events, we serve children ages 3 months -5th grade. While children are in the nursery, they are led in Bible-centered and age-appropriate Bible lessons.

Our nursery staff is trained in First Aid and CPR, as well as the Child, Youth and Vulnerable Adult Safety Policy of Coker UMC.

Volunteers

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,cheryl.kendall@coker.org for more information to get trained.
