ENGWALLS Hanging Flower Baske Sale

Concordia youth attending the July, 2017, YouthWorks Mission Trip to Puerto Rico will be selling coupons for beautiful Engwalls hanging flower baskets. Purchase a  coupon for $30.00 and take it to Engwalls between May 16-31 to pick out a hanging flower basket of your choice, valued at $37.99.  Coupons will be sold after church on   Sunday, April 30 and Sunday, May 7.  

  
Volunteer Opportunity
 
Concordia is looking for a couple of volunteers to enter the deposits and print the batch reports each week. It would be ideal if these persons had a financial background or aptitude in that area. The weekly commitment is less than one hour. You would share the duties with one other person. Please contact the church office at 218-728-4229, if you can help us in this area.  

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.
