We need bags of candy for the Halloween Concert! As in Halloweens past, we are collecting bags of candy for the children’s costume parade – this time for use during the Halloween concert on the afternoon of October 31st. Please bring any donations of individually wrapped candy to the church on or before the morning of October 31st.

Join Concordia Place for a candlelight, intimate concert experience on the patio at Chief O’Neill’s. You’ll enjoy dinner, libations, and music under the stars. The program will feature Marisa Buchheit & Aaron Wardell on vocals, Paul Dykstra on piano, and Eugene Kaler on violin.

Tickets are only $95 and include dinner and an open bar. Attendance is limited in order to help provide a safe, comfortable, and socially distanced event, so don’t wait to get yours!

We continue to ask for help in supporting our neighbors facing food insecurity – either via donations of (shelf-stable) food and toiletry items or through financial contributions. Concordia Church is partnering with the Common Pantry, to support a ‘Take What You Need’ food pantry in the lobby of Swedish Covenant hospital — created for patients to grab grocery and toiletry staples they need on their day of discharge.  Our neighbors (and their immediate families) who are utilizing this food pantry are often facing a double challenge of (1) already experiencing food insecurity and (2) being sidelined from work and the ability to care for themselves/families while being in the hospital.  This food pantry aims to lessen the stress for these patients leaving the hospital.

We have a scheduled delivery the first Tuesday of every month.  Please bring shelf-stable groceries (examples are: canned goods, pasta, jarred sauces, rice, boxed mixes, etc.) and/or new toiletry items (examples: shampoo, toothpaste, lotion, etc.) to the marked container in the church’s main entrance on or before Sunday, October 3rd.  Donations received after this will be included in a future delivery.  Concordia, We are looking for 10 more sponsor families to commit to providing $30 a month (in donations or equivalent items) to this ministry.  If you are unable to commit monthly, but you’d still like to give, simply Text the word “CONCORDIA” to 73256 to give using your mobile device and use the drop down list to choose our ‘social impact’ fund.  All donations to this fund benefit our neighbors in need and is a tangible way we express our faith and gratitude for the blessings we’ve received.  Please connect with Jen Phillips if you have any questions.

Sunday School has restarted and is now a fun activity for the whole family! On the first Sunday of each month, a Family Faith gathering will be presented, which will include a Bible story, lesson, and a craft or activity that can be completed with things around your home. A teacher will lead the session, which will focus on a different Bible story each week.

These sessions will be presented in a hybrid format, so that you can attend in-person or via Zoom. A Zoom link will be sent out to families already receiving Family Faith materials.  Questions? Connect with Betsy Ries or Jen Phillips.

On the weeks we don’t gather together, families will receive a complete lesson packet with read along video, activity, and craft that can be done at home.  If you’d like to be on the email list to receive these, or to receive the Zoom link for the monthly lesson hours, please email Jen or Desirae.

Check out our Family Faith webpage for links to the lesson on Noah’s Ark from this past Sunday and for links to this week’s at-home lesson & activity.

Join us every Sunday morning for worship a 10am, either in-person or virtually! All worship details and resources can be found on our worship page.
