August 2020
"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us
in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, 
even as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world,
that we should be holy and blameless before Him."
--Ephesians 1:3-4
Decisions, decisions! It seems like that’s all we do anymore is make decisions. If you’re anything like me, you’ve even hit the wall of “decision fatigue!" Thankfully, our LORD is with us to guide and bless us in our earthly journey. Best of all, He has made the ultimate decision to love us for eternity by sending His Son, Jesus. The verse above from Ephesians assures that you have been chosen by God!
There are still many decisions to be made in the next few weeks as schools all over the country begin to open. Please pray for Concordia, as we pray for you, that we would reach more people with the Gospel by becoming even more relevant in more ways than before. Pray also for our new and returning students who have made the decision to attend CUW! We lift up these students and their families and ask a special blessing of protection over our entire Concordia community, near and far.
Thank you, dear angels!
There are many angels among us! THANK YOU to all who have given to our crowdfunding campaign in support of computers and program upgrades for our students in need. You are making an immediate impact on these Concordians' lives and education. Our goal was to raise $7,500. To date, we have surpassed this goal by more than $3,000. Woo hoo! We have an amazing Concordia family!

Help us keep the Concordia community SAFE and HEALTHY
As we prepare to welcome our students back to campus for the fall semester, we want to take every precaution necessary to ensure everyone’s safety. The university will provide a reusable CUW mask to every student, faculty, and staff member. With your gift of any amount, you will help cover the cost of these masks for our community AND we will send you a mask to display your CUW spirit! Your support in these remarkably uncommon times is greatly appreciated. We are all in this together. Stay Safe. Stay Healthy. God bless. Click here to give.
