Fourth Sunday of Lent
March 14
Pastor Steve Clark preaching

     For this Sunday, READ Luke 16:19-31 and REFLECT: What thoughts or feelings do you have after reading this parable Jesus tells? What would you want to ask Jesus, or say to Jesus, after hearing him say these words? What do you think about Abraham's final word to the rich man (v31); do you think he's right? Why or why not?

Blanket Sunday
 March 21, 2021

And don't forget to do good and share with those in need. ~ Hebrews 13:16

Church World Service has distributed more than 53,000 blankets to asylum seekers and
migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border. Click on the picture to watch a brief video.

Your contribution to the Blanket Sunday offering is more than a donation and more than a blanket -
it is an expression of God's love. Each $10 gift provides a blanket and enables someone
to see and feel God's love in their lives.

Checks can be made payable to Concord, memo: Blankets.
Donations can also be made online through Concord's website.

Adult Christian Education Series
Tuesdays through March 30, 2021
7:00pm via Zoom

     Much of the racial turmoil in our country today can be traced directly to elements of our history, even before the founding of the United States. Many of the racial stereotypes we hear - or hold - are a direct consequence of intentional economic and public policy and beliefs that have no grounding in genetics. Understanding this history gives us a foundation for action to address the profound inequities that exist in our society today.

     Each session will include a presentation by Sue Linderman, followed by times for Q&A and discussion. No preparation is needed. Attendance at all sessions is not required. (Sessions will be recorded and made available later through Concord's website.)

For a course summary, biography of presenter Sue Linderman, and online registration form, please visit the homepage of Concord’s website ( After you register, we will send you a link.
[Please note: This is not the same link as Mug & Muffin, so you must register to attend.]






After the Storms: Humanitarian Response in Times of Disaster 

     Guatemala, because of its geographic location, is extremely vulnerable to natural disasters – earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, drought, hurricanes, floods, landslides. Last fall, while the people of Guatemala were dealing with the additional distress of a pandemic, Hurricanes Eta and Iota hit the Alta Verapaz department – taking lives, destroying roads, homes, and cropland, and displacing entire communities. 
     Hear about what CEDEPCA’s Disaster Ministry is doing in terms of preparedness and response at “After the Storms: Humanitarian Response in Times of Disaster,” the next Virtual Journey to Guatemala on March 24 at 7:30pm. Because a portion of the One Great Hour of Sharing offering goes directly toward CEDEPCA’s disaster ministry in Guatemala, you will see firsthand the impact of your contribution. The presentation, in English, will be a mix of music, breakout room interaction, videos, and live interviews, and will explore the larger theme of helping vulnerable populations without doing long-term harm.  

Pre-registration is required at
