Sixth Sunday of Easter - Exodus 14:21-31
May 22 @ 10:00am
Pastor Steve Clark preaching
For this Sunday, READ
Exodus 14:21-31 and REFLECT: This story may be very familiar to you -
either through the Bible or thanks to Cecil B. DeMille and Disney
:-) Familiar or not, in both the Old Testament and New
Testament this story is central to how the people understood who
they were and how they became a people. What message do you see in
the story for your own identity as a member of God’s people?

Dear Youth and Parents,
This summer Concord Church is again offering
youth entering grade 6 and up the opportunity to serve our local
community during a Mission-At-Home Week, July 11-14! We
will be volunteering with Friendship House at the Delaware
Clothing Bank, as well as one of their transitional housing
sites. The youth and adult helpers will be sorting clothing
donations and helping with yard work, as well as assisting with a
variety of tasks. (Covid safety protocols are in place at each
site, and we are required to abide by them.) Our friends at
FH are excited to have us back and are looking forward to being
with our group again after such a great experience last summer!
See below for a general schedule of the week:
Monday morning (10am-12:00pm):
Getting to know each other, team building, preparation for the
week, setting our focus and intent on serving God by helping
- Morning: Volunteer together at one of the sites
- Have lunch together (snacks and drinks provided
by Concord Church) and debrief the experience at Concord
Church, a park (such as Bellevue or Talley Day), or a pool

at a park or pool, go tubing again??? 😉

after church we will have a little "baby shower"
celebration for our Afghan family. Although our family will not be

Below is a SignUpGenius link that
includes items the family will need. All the items are available at
We are asking that you click on the check box
on SignUpGenius if you wish to purchase an item
so that we know and others know it is being purchased. You can then
purchase it, and bring it UNWRAPPED to church on or before June 5.
Or you can order it online through the baby registry and have it
delivered to the church.
There are additional items for infants that
might be nice, but we ask that you remember the family's storage
space is very limited. We are, in fact, looking for a small dresser
to use for baby clothes, if anyone has one they would like to
There will be ongoing needs as this infant
grows. If you wish to donate to a fund to purchase larger clothes
or age-appropriate toys as she grows, please send your donation to
