Koinonia is a place to experience joy, peace, beauty, the richness of faith-filled community and a chance to discover life anew. Grounded in the Lutheran understanding of Christian faith, Koinonia is a center for spiritual renewal and leadership development, providing retreats, camps and conferences for families, youth, adults and church groups.
The council used the weekend to rest and recharge, pray and grow in spirituality and even test drive the new Adult Ed curriculum.
Two days spent hiking in the woods, playing on the farm, eating in community and quietly reading scripture in our rooms allowed the council to gain a new understanding of our role in the church, our ministry as leaders and perhaps most importantly getting to know each other better.
Jenn Doerr ran the spiritual side of the retreat, leading us in song and study. Brent Ness directed our Adult Ed session and even managed to sneak some council business into the weekend. Rev. Bob Wollenburg led the Sunday Service at Koninonia which was well attended by the entire community at the retreat center.
The council thanks everyone for allowing us to recharge and have a great weekend.
