Koinonia Café Wednesday menu (weekly menu and prices here)

Adult 6 p.m. studies for Jan. 23 - 

  • Farm-to-Table class. Leanna Coyle-Carr will facilitate a two-week class about the farm-to-table movement on Wednesday evenings, Jan. 23 and 30, at 6 p.m. in Room 1205-L. “Farm-to-table” is a phrase indicating that the food on the table came directly from a specific farm or a local farm or garden. This movement focuses on eating and supporting food that is grown close to where you live. Does it make sense to adopt this practice? Does it make a difference where we buy our food? What about what we put in our bodies? How can the table and a simple meal help us find more community? Participants will have practical discussions about the sacredness of an ordinary meal and thoughtful discussions on this farm-to-table idea.  
  • Joy: A Study of Philippians . A three-week study of the book of Philippians led by the pastoral residents continues on Wednesdays Jan. 23 and Jan. 30. The class will meet in Room 1205-G at 6 p.m. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Few verses in Paul’s letters are as oft-quoted as this one from Philippians. But what does it mean? What’s the context? Come explore the book of Philippians.
