Church Outside of Church – Why?


Here is a portion of pastor’s message from Sunday where he explains why we are being church outside of church.

Come and be a part of it.

Serve…..we live like Jesus when we do!

Church outside of Church – July 1

Yes, we are canceling church on Sunday July 1.  Unheard of?  That tells you of our commitment to serve.  We believe that service is worship.  The church is supposed to be active outside of a church building. The “connecting with those yet not here” is the church’s most important work because the church’s mission is building the Kingdom of God!  We convey that message loud and clear by serving in our community…..we do this not only on these “Church Outside of Church” Sundays but in many ways throughout the year.  This is not a nice little “side” project but making sure the main work remains the main work! Strange?  We like being that kind of strange.  I and glad God gave us…..Concordia…..the special unique call of serving Him in this neighborhood and region.  Read more below……
