A Daily Study in the Scriptures with Pastor Ray Viola

Weekdays at 6:30 PM on WZXV - The Word Listen

Enjoying God and His Blessings

Pastor Ray is the Senior Pastor at Koinonia Fellowship, 500 Main Street, East Rochester, NY 14445.

Our ministries and outreaches provide opportunities for personal involvement, whether it is in receiving ministry or using your gifts and talents to minister to others.

Join us for Sunday services at 8:15, 10:00 and 11:45 am, Sunday evening Bible study at 6:30 pm, and Wednesday night service at 7 pm. Childcare is available on Sunday morning and Wednesday evening, with activities for children of all ages.
