Sunday worship is a weekly meaningful experience, being in the presence of God in community, but did you know many of our members also enjoy further fellowship each month by participating in a small group Bible study or a Koinonia group (K group)?
K groups meet once or twice a month, depending upon the preference of the group participants. Some of our K groups have been together for years, while some have formed more recently.
Each group is made up of no more than 12 people. Groups meet in homes, at church, or in restaurants. What is common to each is the commitment to Christ and each other, in a genuine way, building a mutual bond created through prayer, study, authenticity, service, and celebration. Not all groups are studying the same book or text. Regardless of the material considered, differing theological viewpoints and diversity of backgrounds lead to compelling conversation! K groups offer support, encouragement, cultural engagement, and opportunities to see God’s grace in unexpected ways.
If you have interest in being part of a K group, below are a few that have room for additional people:
