Good Neighbors/Koinonia | 9:30 am | Room 231
The name Good Neighbors says a lot about who we are: caring for each other, serving others. We would describe ourselves as “an active and lively group who loves to learn, think, and express many different opinions”. The most unique thing about this class is its “Big Personality”!
