What is Kairos?

Kairos is the Greek word for sacred time and special encounters with God when we are presented with opportunities to grow in our love of God and neighbor. At St. Paul’s, Ivy, we invite you to join us for Kairos on Sunday mornings between 9:15 and 10:15 a.m. During Kairos, people of all ages come together to encounter God through learning, serving, and community.
