Due to the fact that restrictions are still in place with Covid-19, there will be no September reunion.  Please pray that this all turns around soon so that we can all be together!!  You are all loved!!


Due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, the Dayton Koinonia October, 2020 weekend has been cancelled.


Hi, guys. We’re sorry to say that, with the current situation, the board has decided that it is not wise to continue with this plan for the August DK picnic. We had hoped that things would be in more of an upswing, but we do not want to act irresponsibly and, thus, expose anyone unnecessarily.

We are looking at the possibility of having a similar event in the next month or 2, so watch for info on that possibility. We all want so much to be together and connect with our Koinonia family. Also, watch for any info on the scheduled October weekend. That is, obviously, up in the air at this point. We are in regular communication with Proctor Center as to what their restrictions may be.

You are all loved in Christ!!

The DK Board.


The DK board met on Monday and made a decision about the annual August reunion/picnic. We have been praying about this for some time and feel it’s time to give our folks the opportunity to be together again. So….here’s the plan. The picnic will take place on Saturday, August 22, with family and friends being welcome, as usual. It will be at the home of Michael and Amanda Phillips at 4477 Hollwood Rd, Springfield. (Enon area.) The gathering will start at 4:00. They have a pool, so folks/children are welcome to swim, with meal time around 6:00. Taking into consideration the Covid-19 social distancing, there are obviously changes to the picnic this year. Since there will be no buffet, everyone/family will be asked to bring your own food, paper plates/silverware as needed, and drinks. Bring lawn chairs, as the yard is large enough for us all to be the appropriate distance apart and still interact. Masks are ok, but being outside you may not consider them necessary. The bathroom(s) will be supplied with sufficient germ killing wipes for everyone to use. We are looking forward to seeing all those who are comfortable attending as we prepare to move forward with the ministry!! If there are changes relative to the virus and/or weather, we will be sure to get the word out and make appropriate changes. Love you all!! Thank you for your prayers and patience!! Stay tuned for any updates as needed.


The board would like to thank each of you for your prayers as we have deliberated on decisions that have needed to be made regarding each of our gatherings.  Our world today is in a place that is unique to anything we have experienced, and it has been our total desire to be responsible and to make the decisions according to God’s leading.
Having said that, we are sorry to announce that our spring weekend for DK-66 will be cancelled.  Even if the quarantine has been lifted, there are still team meetings to be considered, along with reunions, continued health awareness, etc.

In addition, we are cancelling the April reunion, normally scheduled for the 3rd Saturday of the month.  We will look ahead to May and let everyone know what to expect as the date becomes closer.
Again, thank you for your many prayers, and please continue to pray for the board as we move ahead.  Also, be in prayer for each other that we would all remain healthy, and for our government leaders as they make decisions for us all during this time.
God Bless You All!!


In accordance with the government standards, suggestions, and mandates, we are cancelling the reunion for March, which was previously scheduled for this Sat, the 21st. Please be in prayer for this country, our leaders, and the health profession as they make these difficult decisions. Also, please be in prayer for the Koinonia board, as the board is faced with wisely making decisions for future activities this spring.
God bless!
