THE NEXT 60
Koinonia’s 60th Anniversary Year of Celebrations
Dedication Day 2.0
June 10th from 10am-5pm (link)
Celebrate the 60-year commitment between Koinonia and congregations in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Pastors, Bishops, Board Members (former and current) and congregants will re-dedicate Koinonia and recommit to Koinonia for our NEXT 60 years of partnership.
On June 4,1964, hundreds of enthusiastic people attended a ceremony in the Jubilee Meadow to dedicate the site and its ministry. At this event we will be enthusiastic again enjoying a Festival Luncheon in the Conference Center followed by a Diamond Jubilee Dedication Service in the Chapel in the Pines. A day not to be missed! We have much to celebrate; all are welcome. Stay the whole weekend or come up for Saturday only.
Update: We already have three Bishops from the tri state area attending this event! Retreat buildings and Conference Center rooms are available to reserve. Come be a part of this special day! Register now.
