Koinonia is a Greek word that occurs 20 times in the Bible. Koinonia’s primary meaning is “fellowship, sharing in common, communion.” The first occurrence of the koinonia is Acts 2:42: “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship (Koinonia), to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” 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.
The Oracle Union Church formed a women’s Koinonia group in 1964. The group’s main mission is to give financial support to services of the community such as the library, fire department, food bank, and school.
A bake sale is held in November in conjunction with a church breakfast to raise funds for the mission.
Koinonia meets at 1pm the second Monday of the month from September through May. The meetings are hosted at the homes of church members. All church women are invited.
