Come, Rest & Renew

In the 1960s, during the height of the Civil Rights Movement, scores of Civil Rights workers came to Koinonia to find respite. Refreshed, they would then return to the field. People are still coming to drink of the waters and find refreshment here. Pastors, writers, artists, workers of today’s movements, these visits are for all who labor and need a time for rest and renewal. You are welcome to join the community for worship and some communal meals, but we won’t allow you to work with us. You are here to rest!
