Connect in life-giving Community

At Coker we know that you want to be in community and feel connected to others. Since 1883, we have been helping people connect into life-giving community. One of the ways we do that is by inviting you to join an online, on-demand, or in-person group. Various groups are offered throughout this year. See class listings and sign-up below or, for more information, e-mail Rev Damon Relder at

FOR THOSE NEW TO COKER: Connecting at Coker (A one time class offered the last Sunday of the month from 10:15-11 am)

At Coker, we know that you want to be in community. In order to do that, you need a church that helps you feel connected. The problem is that churches can be hard to navigate which makes you feel alone in the crowd or without clear next steps. We believe you deserve to be welcomed, seen, known, and walked with. We understand that making friends at church can be hard which is why, since 1883, we have been helping people connect into life-giving community. Here’s how we do it: We invite you to attend a Connecting at Coker Class and we invite you to join a group and/or class within Coker. Class information is listed below, register for the class that best fits your schedule! If you are new to Coker, register HERE for our next Connecting at Coker Class.

IN-PERSON: Noon Bible Study

Location: WH804
Dates: ongoing
Time: 12 pm
Description: Did you know there is one class that has been meeting almost weekly for nearly 20 years now? Somewhat hidden but always powerful and occasionally filled with laughter, this class has been meeting on Thursdays at noon on campus in Wesley 804 for years. No book other than your Bible is needed as the class is an open discussion look at the passage which will be used by the pastors for their sermon on the upcoming Sunday. The Scripture of the day is read aloud and the opening questions is always “What are your first thoughts?” usually followed by details about Hebrew or Greek, questions about history or culture, and ending up with “What difference does all this make to my faith?” Come join us any time you can.
Materials: Bring your bible
