Bringing Church in New Ways

As God’s children, we are led to answer the call to serve, within our own circles of friends and family, while also into and throughout our larger community. Last year, Concordia Church embarked on new mission initiatives in four key areas: Music Expansion, Community Service, Inclusive Worship, and Virtual Faith. Through these initiatives, we are able to do the following:

Proclaim our FaithWe glorify God through praise, worship, and sharing the Good News with others.

Grow in our Faith – We deepen our personal relationship with our God and Savior and our relationships with each other.

Live Out our Faith – When God lives in us, we express our gratitude through generosity and service.
