“Koinonia” is a Greek word meaning fellowship or sharing or partnership. Hope Chapel’s Koinonia ministry provides people 45 years old and over an opportunity to fellowship with other Christians who have graduated from the tension of school, young children, and career development.
Koinonia provides an opportunity for mature adults to fellowship and participate in ministry opportunities with others. We also welcome people from other churches which do not offer a fellowship ministry for mature members.
We play Christian movies on the first Sunday of each month at 2pm. All are welcome to enjoy the movies, popcorn, and fellowship.
We have a potluck lunch on the third Sunday of each month at 2pm. We also have worship music, a message, and opportunities to see old friends. If you can’t bring a potluck dish, come anyway!
We host a men’s breakfast on the first Monday morning of each month.
We also sponsor various trips and events during the year. Koinonia has arranged visits to the Regan Library, the Orange County Fair, the Museum of Tolerance, the Christmas lighting at the Riverside Mission Inn, and numerous other activities.
Annually, on the Sunday evening before Thanksgiving, Koinonia sponsors an all-church potluck. Last year, we had approximately 160 people of all ages participate.
Active participation is encouraged. Koinonia members fill many ministry positions including serving as greeters, teachers, Elders, event volunteers, MiniChurch shepherds, amongst other roles.
