  • Our Retretat - So When Life gives you Snow Storms... Make Lemonade

    “SO WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU SNOW STORMS… MAKE LEMONADE!!”

    The nor’easter arriving this weekend is expected to pound Camp Koinonia badly: 

    • 20” of snow, 50+ mph winds
    • Downed trees
    • Expected loss of power
    • Local schools closing
    • Trains being suspended… 

    forced us to postpone the annual GA retreat for this weekend.  (We are hoping to reschedule soon.)

    Perhaps this doesn’t have to be a complete bust.  How about having a fun Friday “retreat night @GA?”  If you would like to meet Friday 3/2 at 7 p.m., to enjoy food, friends, faith and fun, let me know.

    We could order pizza.  You could bring a snack to share and your favorite beverage.  And we could enjoy:

    • Karaoke (competition of course)
    • Corn hole (competition of course)
    • And several other new games Linda M. has come up with (competition of course)

    If you’d like to “jump in” on this fun, please RSVP… ASAP… with LOVE!

Collecting Food for the Hungry and Homeless

As the weather begins to change, life for those who are hungry and homeless becomes even more difficult. Please bring non-perishable food items and place them in the baskets at the sanctuary entrance. The food we collect will be taken to the food pantry at Trinity Lutheran Church, Lower Eastside.
