Called into fellowship
“God is faithful, by whom you were called into fellowship
(koinōnian | κοινωνίαν | acc sg fem) with his Son, Jesus Christ
our Lord.” 1 Corinthians 1:9
What is koinonia?
koinonia (Gr. κοινωνία) is a Greek word found throughout the Bible meaning fellowship, relationship and community
What is a k group?
Koinonia groups (k groups) are small groups of people called by God into fellowship.
Why are k groups important?
Koinonia (fellowship) sits at the heart of what it means to be a follower of Jesus. Christian teaching about fellowship means that to believe is to belong. God calls in order to invite us into fellowship, into a relationship with his only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. And to be in fellowship with Jesus, the Bible makes clear, is to discover the joy of living in community with others who have made their way to the foot of the Cross. That’s the good news of the gospel!
We give thanks that the risen and ascended Jesus is still, by the work of the Holy Spirit, calling us together to share in relationship and ministry for the sake of the gospel.
k group aims:
- Come to know Jesus and share in his mission
- Find a place to belong
- Grow in your knowledge of Scripture
- Discover your gifts for service
- Strengthen First Church as an outpost of the kingdom
