We want you to know
We are monitoring the Corona Virus situation carefully.We want you to know that though we are still listing the following events we will make a decision on each event as they arise. We want to keep your children, our volunteers, and others as safe as possible. Please be patient with us and we will let you know if activities will be cancelled or postponed as quickly as possible.
For parents with children at home it is a busy time to keep them engaged, educated and entertained, while often depleting parent energies. In order to provide for parent's spiritual stamina during these uncertain days the following opportunities are offered:
- Daily Lenten devotional sent to your e-mail address
- Bible study Lenten opportunity - Currently studying Max Lucado's text, "And the Angels were Silent" led by Pastor Glenna. You can join the live Zoom broadcast or get a tape of the delivered study to your e-mail.
- Sunday school class lesson - "Entering the Passion of Jesus" led by Pastor Glenna, taped and delivered to your e-mail.
For any of the above, send Glenna (
) an e-mail telling her of your interest and she will make it happen!
Also in addition to the "In the Loop" which goes out through e-mail each Friday, you will also receive an "In Touch" through e-mail each day to help us stay in contact with one another.
Parents with youth please be attentive to Instagram and Facebook. Coffee House at 5pm Wednesday on Insta live and Amplified 2.0 at 6pm on Sunday on Insta live.

Ways your family can serve
Shout out to a shut in
Your child's talents are needed to help out our local elderly that are unable to get out and visit with family and friends. If your child would like to write notes or make cards for this vital ministry please contact
for a name and address of a church member in need of some cheering up. We are asking that your child mail these items they make out as often as possible.
Cards for the pantry bags
*We also need kids to color cards to be added to the bags at the food pantry. Our kids color bags every year for the food pantry during VBS but we want people to know we are thinking of them and praying for them as Easter approaches and that God and Concord United still loves them. You can drop them off at the East Wing Entrance in a box marked Concord United Kids.
Food Donations needed for the local food pantry
Please check the web page for a list of foods needed for the pantry that our church supports at Faith Lutheran. Donations can be dropped off at anytime at the East Entry under the drive through by the doors. Donations can be left outside if the church is closed.
