2017 Fall Retreat
Koinonia: Building Our Christian Community

Koinonia is a biblical Greek word that means "Christian fellowship." We'll be celebrating just that on our upcoming fall retreat!  

Through different group-building activities and guided questions, we'll be getting to know one another at a deeper level--sharing stories, listening, and having fun. When the world can feel like a chaotic and toxic place, when the pressure to "perform" at a higher-than-what's-possible level keeps us busy and overwhelmed, when we're unsure how to respond to the suffering we see in the world, we need community. Join us for some Christian community fellowship at this fall retreat. By growing closer, our community of support grows, which helps us feel connected and grounded. We hope to see you there!  

The cost for the retreat is $150. To pay and register, click here
