Keeping you connected to the life and ministry of 
Concord Presbyterian Church!

Sunday Worship - September 13, 2020
Pastor Steve Clark preaching


     For this Sunday, READ Matthew 18:21-35 and REFLECT: Does Peter's question - and suggestion - about forgiveness (v. 21) sound reasonable to you? Why or why not? How would you have answered him? What do you understand as the "point" of Jesus' parable? Does that point seem reasonable to you? Why or why not? What question(s) do you want to ask Jesus after hearing the story?


     TO JOIN US in worship this Sunday, September 13, CLICK ON THE PICTURE above to go to our Concord website. Near the bottom of the home page, click on the graphic that reads "Welcome to worship at Concord Presbyterian - September 13, 2020" to connect with the worship video. The worship video will be accessible after 9:00am each Sunday morning.




We also need volunteers to help with set up and clean up. If you are willing to arrive 30 minutes early or stick around for a bit after the picnic to assist, please contact Nancy Tucker –




Donations for Hanover Food Pantry - Sunday, September 13
"I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink,
I was a stranger and you welcomed me. . ." (Matthew 25:35)

How can I help? In this unsettled time, we’re all very aware of what we aren’t able to do. We also know there’s a lot of need in our community and world. So many of us are asking,

Here’s one answer: Concord’s Mission Committee will be collecting canned goods and staples for Hanover Food Pantry at our Homecoming Tailgate on Sept.13. Please bring along non-perishable food donations and place in one of the designated containers.

Note: We also will have masks available for distribution to tailgate attendees & community members who might need one for a return to the office or school. 




The Session has called a special Congregational Meeting for 12:00pm on Sunday, September 13. The meeting will be held in the parking lot of Concord Presbyterian Church. Business to be conducted at the meeting will be limited to the following items:

·        ELECTION of three at-large members to Nominating Committee. Names being presented for these positions are Jan Moore, Marj Johnson, and Ryan Moffett. Per meeting requirements, nominations from the floor may be offered.

·        AMENDMENT OF CORPORATION BY-LAWS to allow for electronic meetings of the congregation/corporation. The amendment, to be inserted as paragraph 5 in the bylaws with all following sections renumbered to reflect the change, shall read as follows:
The corporation may meet by electronic means if all members have reasonable notice of the electronic meeting and the ability to discuss and vote on business items. The quorum for such a meeting shall be the same as for all Corporation meetings: one-tenth (1/10) of the Active Membership Roll of the church.
