Check out the encouragement page of our website. Here you’ll find reflections and writings on a variety of topics that we hope will meet you where you are, with whatever you may be facing. Take some time to peruse the selection, and take a moment when you need to read and reflect. New resources are added regularly.
We will soon be embarking on a community-wide collection for 5 specific items in high need in the community. They are:
Adult diapers – size medium and large (pull-up style preferred)
Whole grain crackers
Feminine hygiene products
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.
