YAH YAH’s – 2nd Wednesday of each month in the Fellowship Hall
The Yah Yahs (Young at Heart) of Cokesbury is a group that enjoys socializing once a month during a covered dish luncheon. We welcome everyone regardless of denomination, race or age.
Bible Study – Mondays 7:00 – 9:00 pmWednesdays 11am-12pm Library
These are opportunities to learn about God in daily living found in Scripture and the lessons of life. Studying the stories, history, culture, and literature of the Bible reveals God’s wisdom. But discussing with one another what forms and shapes our daily lives reveals our wisdom. Bringing the two together to learn “what should I do” strengthens our relationship with God, with one another, and with the world as we are changed by a continuous encounter with God. This is a “drop-in” style discussion group for anyone and everyone!
Mondays 7:00 – 8:00 pm (Education Building)
