Koiné Concert

Please join us this Thursday (October 16) for a night of food, fellowship, and music. The band, Koiné will be performing at Shepherd of the Hills in La Mesa (9191 Fletcher Pkwy, La Mesa, CA 91942) at 7:00 pm with a barbecue meal provided before the concert at 6:00 pm. If you plan on attending, please consider emailing us at church@risensavior.us so that we can give them an estimate on how many may be attending from Risen Savior. We hope to see you there!

Koiné is a Greek word that means “common.” They play common instruments and common hymns that many know and enjoy. The only extraordinary thing about Koiné and what they do is the message that they proclaim through the music they play. It’s the same message of the Bible – Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world.

Koiné Music Ministries is a non-profit ministry whose main source of support is the generosity of local churches and WELS members like you. Koiné Music Ministries has partnered with Wisconsin Lutheran College and Martin Luther College as they share the mission and purpose of each institution through their many travels.

Throughout the year Koiné travels to 200 churches, schools, and events across the United States. From Seattle to Miami and everywhere in between, Koiné travels to share God’s saving message through music. In addition to playing concerts and services, Koiné serves the church by making their music available on recordings, sheet music, and non-vocal CDs, which are often used by grade school and Sunday school teachers to teach hymns to children.

Come Follow Me

Come Follow Me is a movie that depicts what it means to be a disciple, a follower of Jesus. The movie recounts the experience of the Apostle Peter—his misunderstanding, denial, doubts, and fears. The answer for Peter is Jesus who assures his disciple of forgiveness through his death on the cross and resurrection from the dead. Visit www.wels.net/comefollowme for more information.
