Creation Care Interfaith Arts Camp - August 20-23
Registration is now open for Concordia’s summer program. Creation Care Interfaith Arts Camp will take the place of our traditional Vacation Bible School program. It is open to children of all faiths or no faith background. It will be held from Monday, August 20 - Thursday, August 23. Children, ages 3-5, will meet from 9 - 11:30 a.m. and children who have completed kindergarten through 5th grade will meet from 9 a.m.- 3 p.m..

Before and after care will be available for this age group. The focus of the camp will be on relationships. Specifically, we will be focusing on how
we care for ourselves, for others, and for all of God’s creation. Every day will begin with a gathering time of music and movement. Throughout the day children will use various aspects of the arts to express themselves. The community is invited to an open house on Thursday, August 23 from 6-7 p.m. to see what the children have created. Enrichment activities will be provided by individuals with expertise in mindfulness, nutrition, bird-watching, forestry, interpersonal communication, creative arts, music, and movement.

The camp is limited to thirty students and registration will close on August 1. Please share this opportunity with young people that you know. Scholarships are available. The preschool program is $45 and the K-5 program is $95. Registration forms are available on Concordia’s
website or in the church narthex. If you have questions contact Kristin M. Peterson, Camp coordinator:kpeterson374@gmail.com

Stations of the Cross   View Slide Show  (mp4 format)
Dale Burton (www.burtonforge.com) installed our new Stations of the Cross in 2013. Dale was commissioned by Concordia to design and construct these Stations, which are in keeping with our architecture and especially our crucifix. The cost of these new Stations has been covered by memorials and honoraria.

Communion Bread Bakers Needed
