MISSION OUTREACH & COKER HEALTH & WELLNESS CENTER Coker’s health and wellness center continues to offer food services on Thursdays. The clothing closet is not currently open, and we are not able to take donations of plastic bags. We have increased sanitation and cleaning. We have also increased sanitation procedures for clients and volunteers so that we can continue distributing these much needed items. Clients are still using a drive-thru system to receive their food. Donations are still being accepted and all of our clients are very thankful for being able to receive much needed items. We are accepting monetary donations for school supplies for our backpack give-away (you can visit Coker.org/donate to give online). Note: The Pastor’s Benevolence Fund Meetings continue as well.

PRAYER & PASTORAL CARE
Our Pastors are available to meet in-person with social distancing and masks in place. They are also available talk on the phone or Zoom. If you are in need of prayer or Pastoral Care, please contact Barbara Keeper. Specify if you need to be added to the prayer list or if you need to talk with a Pastor. These times are anxious and sensitive and while we put our full faith and trust in Jesus, we are happy to join you in prayer where needed. CLICK HERE to Contact Barbara Keeper
COVID-19 BEST PRACTICES
Our Top Three best practices are as follows:
1. Wear a Mask (as of July 2nd, masks are required indoors & outdoors in public places, in counties where the COVID numbers exceed 20 cases).
2. Keep a social distance of 6′ or more from one another
3. Limit indoor congregating (this includes limiting time and/or capacity, booking in larger spaces, etc).
While things can feel uncertain, know that God is in control. Our goal around monitoring in-person gatherings is to keep everyone safe. The Task Force will continue to meet every two weeks to evaluate and make adjustments as needed. Some additional best practices are:
-Follow Credible News Sources, a few are listed below. An individual’s opinions, bias research, and social media page may not be as credible as going to the sources directly (Like the NIH, World Health Organization, Etc.)
-Stay home if you or someone in your home is sick (until fever free for 24 hours).
-Wash your hands often, use hand sanitizer.
-Pray. Pray for each other, our city, health care professionals, and those who are sick or at risk.
-Praise. Thank God for the provisions He has already put in place.
