And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. Acts 2:42
Our English word, “fellowship” is the translation of the Greek word, “koinonia.” The word has such a multitude of meanings that no single English word is adequate to express its depth and richness. It is a derivative of koinos, the word for common. Koinonia’s primary meaning is “sharing in common, joint participation, communion.”
Christian fellowship is a key aspect of the Christian life. Believers in Christ are to come together in love, faith, and encouragement. That is the essence of koinonia.
Koinonia (K) Groups are a family ministry providing instruction in God’s Word and loving fellowship and care to the body of Christ in small group settings (Acts 2:36-47). Each group has facilitator and a host home family, and there are generally about 15 people in a group.
A Typical K-Group Description:
The groups are held on Wednesday nights beginning at 6 pm, a light meal is provided by one of the K-Group’s families at each weekly gathering in the host home. After a short time of fellowship during the meal, the facilitator using a set of questions prepared in advance by the pastor and based on the previous Sunday’s scripture lesson leads a Bible Study.
K-Group questions will be made available in the bulletin at each Sunday’s worship time so that, members can answer them and complete any additional study necessary prior to the K-Group Wednesday evening session.
Children are encouraged to be a part of the family K-Group setting and may bring some quiet activities such as books or crayons.
There is also an optional Teen K-Group that meets at the church 7th-12th grade!
