He has risen indeed!  I hope you had a blessed Easter weekend and had time to celebrate with family and friends. As we prepared for this most Holy Week in our Christian faith, I was reminded how blessed I am to work for a Christian organization and have the opportunity to attend chapel every workday. Too often we tend to forget how God really blesses in many different ways. Please take the time to reflect on your many blessings, no matter how big or small. Rejoice in the promise of salvation through our Lord and Savior's death on the cross and resurrection. (Click here to view past chapel sermons.)

Golden Reunion Celebration

The Concordia College Class of 1967 produced graduates of strong faith, including the first female graduates, that have gone on to do great works for Christ in the Church and in the world. 
 
The class committee of  Evelyn (Netz) Baesch, Terry Donovan, Rev. Andrew Dzurovcik, and Joann (Lowery)  Mueller are busy planning a memorable  and enjoyable reunion to include: a tour of Concordia College, celebration service, dinner, Concordia University update by President Ferry, and a special class recognition during the Baccalaureate service. Join us for one, two, or three days.  Click here  to RSVP. 

In recognition of this reunion and what this class has accomplished, the class representatives have decided to raise money for a $25,000 endowment to benefit juniors or seniors at Concordia University Wisconsin who have chosen a major in church work.  A member of your class graciously made a generous offer to match, dollar for dollar, all donations up to $12,500. Even if you cannot attend the reunion, please prayerfully consider helping us carry on the Concordian tradition of providing church workers for our communities by making a donation to establish the endowment. Just indicate it is for the Class of 1967 endowment. Thank you to those of you who have already donated!
