"Sing to the Lord, all the world!
Proclaim every day the good news that he has saved us.

- 1 Chronicles 16:23-33
from the Good News Translation
Have you been hoping to read some good news? Then this month’s newsletter is for you!
 
God has blessed us mightily. In this time of COVID, CUW is holding steady in undergraduate enrollment-- and the CUAA campus achieved an all-time record high. Concordia has reason to be thankful! (Read more below and celebrate with us!)

As Christians, we are called to share the good news about Jesus Christ with everyone. The word “gospel” literally means Good News. This month’s scripture verse (above) enthusiastically tells us to sing to the Lord and proclaim the good news of salvation.
 
Do you have something to share with us from your department of good news? We would love to hear about it! During this month of thanksgiving, we are especially grateful for each one of you.
 
God’s blessings on you and your loved ones.
Scholarship recipients humbled
by your generosity
Without scholarship support, most of our students would not be able to attend Concordia University and receive an education rooted in Christian values. Thank you to all those who have supported scholarships and our students throughout the years. You have made a positive impact on our scholarship recipients as well as the many people they will serve in their lives.
 
You have helped these students follow in your footsteps so that they, too, could live out the Concordia mission.
 
On behalf of our students, thank you!
"I am grateful for Concordia for many reasons: The people I have met, lifelong friendships I have made, the meaningful, faith-centered education, the role it’s played in helping me maintain my faith and trust in God, and the many opportunities it has opened up for me. Thank you so much for helping students like me receive an education that will truly help us make a positive impact on our world."
