2017 was a big year for Concordia Church on Whipple! We held numerous outreach events, saw new people get involved in the worshiping community and new leadership roles, and in October 2017, we launched weekly worship on Reformation Sunday. Now that our community is meeting together for worship every Sunday, we’ve entered a new stage of our journey together – and so we’re forming a new leadership group to provide new opportunities for faith community members to lead and guide our new faith community.

The Community Life Leadership Team for Concordia Church on Whipple is a new leadership group that’s forming to lead the development of our new faith community at Concordia on Whipple. The team will meet once a month on the first Sunday of the month right after worship at Whipple to strategize ways to achieve our mission goals: creating the best Sunday worship experience at Concordia on Whipple; building relationships within Concordia Church on Whipple as well as within Concordia Church and Concordia Place as a whole; reaching out to the larger Avondale community and growing our faith community; strategizing how to effectively use marketing tools and outreach activities.  The team’s work will be guided by one central question:  how are we called to “love God and love our neighbor” through our faith community at Concordia on Whipple?  Want to learn more?
