Keeping you connected to the life and ministry of 

Concord Presbyterian Church!
 

 


 

We will celebrate the Lord's Supper as part of the service. Please have your "bread" and "wine" ready.
We will eat and drink together in remembrance of Christ and his sacrifice for the world.

 

 



Easter Sunday
April 4
Pastor Steve Clark preaching
Communion*, One Great Hour of Sharing, Deacons' Fund

     For this Sunday, READ Luke 24:1-16 and REFLECT: As with Palm Sunday, although the Easter story has become very familiar to many of us, the details of that event are told differently by each of the Gospel writers. As you read Luke's account, what do you notice that you hadn't noticed before or perhaps had forgotten? What detail(s) of the story as you remember it does Luke leave out? In Luke's telling of the story, what do you hear as the main message? If you took that message seriously, how would that affect how you live your life in days ahead?
    TO JOIN US in worship Easter Sunday, April 4, CLICK ON THE PICTURE above to go to our Concord website. Near the bottom of the home page, click on the same picture to connect with the worship video. The worship video will be accessible after 9:00am each Sunday morning. 

* This Sunday we will celebrate the Lord's Supper as part of the service.
Please have something ready for eating and something ready for drinking.

For over 70 years, One Great Hour of Sharing has provided Presbyterians with a way
to share God's love with our neighbors in need around the world.




In a world of disaster, hunger, and oppression, millions of people lack access to
sustainable food sources, clean water, sanitation, education, and opportunity. 


The three programs supported by One Great Hour of Sharing - Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, the Presbyterian Hunger Program, and Self-Development of People - all work in different ways to serve individuals and communities in need. From initial disaster response to ongoing community development, their work fits together to provide people with safety, sustenance, and hope.
 

You can join in restoring hope, feeding the hungry, and empowering the oppressed
through your contribution to One Great Hour of Sharing this Easter season.

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

Easter "Baskets"!

Since we will not be gathering as a worshiping community this Easter, the Spiritual Formation Team (Gayle Hazel, Heather Janas, Marcie Jorgensen, Holly Reuther, Liz Rowe, Carly Twilley, Christina Pressley) gathered in Concord's parking lot to assemble Easter pails and bags for the children and youth of Concord Church. Our plan is to deliver them to your homes on Good Friday. Please let Christina know if you'll be out of town and need to arrange a different drop-off/pickup from one of our team members.

Lights of Hope
On Monday evening, an outdoor service of remembrance for those who have died of COVID-19 was held at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd on Foulk Road. Following the service, luminaries were lit at other area churches, including Concord, as a sign of hope in these times.
