What's Happening at KokomoNaz

Have a question?

We often have difficult questions about life and Christianity. Often, the toughest questions are not addressed in church. But if you we have QUESTIONS, the Bible has the ANSWERS. Pastor Tim will address our questions in his summer sermon series. We want to know… WHAT ARE YOUR QUESTIONS? Please share by filling out the anonymous form at kokomonaz.org/questions or by scanning the QR code.
