Keeping you connected to the life and ministry of 

Concord Presbyterian Church!

Sunday, July 11 @ 10:00am
"Voices from the Psalms: I Am Your Servant" - Psalms 116
Pastor Steve Clark preaching

     For this Sunday, READ Psalm 116 and REFLECT: What do you hear the writer trying to express? Can you identify with that message? Is there anything in the psalm you find hard to accept or understand? What makes it difficult for you? If you could be in conversation with the writer, what question(s) would you ask them? What comments would you offer?
     Join us for IN-PERSON WORSHIP on Sunday at 10:00am; doors open at 9:40am. We have developed guidelines for your safety, including social distancing, mask wearing, hand sanitizing, and collecting contact tracing information. Click here to read a complete list of these guidelines if you plan to attend.
     For those who are not yet ready or able to attend our service in person, a live-streamed/recorded option is available on our website. To join us in WORSHIP ONLINE this Sunday, July 11, click on the picture above to go to our Concord website.

The worship service will be available live at 10:00am Sunday morning or later in the day to view at your convenience.
