The Common Christians group at Woodlawn church of Christ, in Florence Alabama, is a ministry for all young professionals from college age to 30s. However, this group is not bound by age brackets; it seeks to serve others through Christ with unity in knowing that we have all things common. Our name comes from a passage in Peter’s sermon in Acts 2:44, “And all that believed were together, and had all things common.” Furthermore, koinos is the Greek word for “common.” As Christians, we are to have all things common and if a member is in need, another member is there to help. Thus, the same foundation with our group.
Mostly comprised of young professionals, the Koinos group is also home to college students, graduate students, single adults, young couples, and couples with young children. Our group is truly a diverse family.
The Common Christians group exists to 1) provide a Spiritual Family for Young Professionals, 2) encourage Young Professionals to live out their faith in Jesus daily, and 3) challenges Young Professionals to focus on Christ and others before themselves. A common theme of all of our classes is building a faith whose ultimate focus is Christ, not ourselves.
Our weekly classes meet on Sunday mornings at 10:15 and Wednesday nights at 7:00 PM, as well as other various devotionals, fellowships, activities, and special service opportunities.
