Directories for your geographic regions will be made available this spring to help you know the Christ Church neighbors closest to you. The directories are rolling out one at a time. Your patience is appreciated. These Koinonia directories are a work in progress. With your help they can become a helpful tool in times of celebration and in times of concern. What you can do to help: 

Check the information listed to verify that it is correct. Email Nancy Przybylko with corrections,, or call 252633-2109.

If you have a cell phone and do not mind sharing your cell phone number, it will be helpful to your neighbors when the power goes out during a storm. Some will want to check in with you or you may want to check in with others to verify that everyone is okay. Having a phone charger in your car can help keep the phone charged during power outages. If we do not already have your cell phone number you may send it to Nancy Przybylko.

Interestingly, we find some addresses outside their logical Koinonia boundary. At this time I am working with a team to realign some of the boundaries. The lines and labeling were created years ago and in some cases, with new neighborhoods and roads, it seems a little tweaking may be helpful.

Some Koinonia areas that are geographically adjacent are being combined into the same directory for your convenience. Mailing labels are Continued on page 2

available from Nancy Przybylko if you would like to invite folks over for a birthday or some other celebration. Please give Nancy plenty of lead time. 

The directories will be hand carried to you by folks in your neighborhood. Please welcome them.

Debt of gratitude So many have done so much with Koinonia over the years it is impossible to thank everyone. I would like to thank Terry Brubaker and April Adams over the last many years for their leadership and care. They spent countless hours calling for leadership volunteers in each area, communicating needed information and coordinating activities and meetings. Also, there are the many leaders throughout New Bern who have coordinated care and helped newcomers get acquainted. We are grateful to all of you for your dedication and help! A New Face With this directory Koinonia is taking on a new face. Some things we’ve done in the past have worked well. Some things need tweaking. With this directory we are counting on your creativity to find ways to have fun. Yours in Christ,
