Communal group celebrates chapel

May 19, 2007

Sumter County - - It was a special day for a Sumter county community who prides itself on their closeness and spirituality. 

People who live in the Koinonia farm community celebrated the rededication of their community chapel Saturday.

After seeing a need for a renovated facility, a family out of Illinois donated $50,000 for the project.

Saturday, Koinonia members and their friends helped them celebrate the completion of the project.  

"Wonderful. It's good to see its done. We've been nine months doing it mostly with volunteers, so it's taken a long time. It's marvelous to be here. Were such a blessed congregation, blessed day," says Ellie Castle.

Community members meet in the chapel every morning for meditation before doing their farm work together.
