LEADER: Elizabeth deRainville-Stone
TIME: Tuesdays 11:00am - 1:00pm (beginning Jan. 16)
LOCATION: Koinonia

Do you enjoy knitting? Are prayer and caring for others important to you? If so, this is a Life Group for women who desire to knit, pray, and create items to show their love and care for those in need of encouragement. Our focus will be on encouraging people within this Koinonia family initially, and possibly community needs as well.

We have pattern books of prayer shawls for the group to peruse. If you have other patterns to share, they are most welcome.

*If you cannot attend, but have unused yarn and/or needles at home, please consider donating them to our group!

REQUIREMENTS: For women age 50+. Bring your own knitting needles and yarn.

An informal gathering for men of any age to share and pray together.


Extreme Adventure: Baffin Island

LEADER: Johannes Snethlage
TIME: Thursday Evenings (Monthly)
LOCATION: Cambridge

This trip is a rare opportunity. Learn what interdependence with our brothers and sisters means, and put it into practice. Learn alpining skills, lightweight backpacking, mountaineering, rock climbing, and river fording. This group will meet once a month for an entire year in preparation, planning, instruction, training, prayer, and Bible reading. These monthly activities (i.e. hiking) are open to anyone whether you are planning to go on the trip or not. We'd love to have you join us.

The trip will take place in late August 2018 and is approximately 2-3 weeks long. If this really turns your crank and you have always wondered why God made mountains and why He meets His children on mountain tops, come on out and check us out.

REQUIREMENTS: Open to anyone age 18+. Limited to 20 participants, and only 8 spots on the trip available. Cost of the trip is approx. $2400 (costs may be reduced depending on use of AirMiles, etc.).
