    Koiné is excted to present our Illuminated Concert and Worship series. Much like our other special service presentations, Koiné weaves together scriptural narration, music, and multimedia to share the Biblical truths of our Christian faith. The Illuminated presentations add the element of environmental video projection to paint the walls of the room with light. Much like a theatrical production sets scenes and changes locations through painted backdrops and moving set pieces, the Illuminated series uses motion video to the same effect.

  • The Vine and Branches

    Lent has offered us the opportunity to walk with Jesus from his Glory revealed in the transfiguration, to his glory hidden when he was disfigured and nailed to the cross. Though the season may make us blue, its purpose is to have us long for that first glimpse of life on Easter morning.

    As we trudge through the dead faith and decay of blind scoffing, sleepy disciples, a betraying friend, and brutal abuse, we know Jesus went through all of it for us that we might be grafted into the Vine that sprouted from the empty tomb.
