For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them. – Matthew 18:20
Koinonia is the Greek word for “fellowship” in the Bible. It refers both to the joyful relationship between God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and between the followers of Jesus. At Laurel, we believe that as we gather for worship, study, meal, mission and recreation we experience the joy of both those connections!
Special fellowship begins with the bonds of those who attend our adult class at 8:45 am Sundays. It extends to the women’s monthly Bible study at 10:00 am on the second Monday of each month (except July and August) and the monthly men’s breakfast at the International House of Pancakes on West Broad near Gaskins, at 7:30 am on the first Saturday of each month. And we definitely enjoy some hearty fellowship and meals at our periodic all-church dinners and after-worship luncheons [Check the “Coming Events” page for dates and times.] We encourage you to join us for the good times at our annual picnic in June.
Throughout the year we experience special fellowship at concerts, short-term evening classes, small group experiences and as our members gather informally in their homes and groups. Check on this website (also in the newsletter that may be viewed on the “Newsletter” page) and our Facebook page for news of our latest opportunity for koinonia!
Wherever and whenever we meet in the name of Christ, we consider him as present in the midst of us.
