Join Us For Worship
Sunday Mornings!

We gather Sunday morning at 9:30 in our Sanctuary. We have a traditional and contemporary style service, which generally alternate each week. Pastor John Dostal delivers our message  and administers Holy Sacrament each week. After worship, we share fellowship time together in our fireside room. Coffee & refreshments are served.

At 11:10 following fellowship, many stay for CORE Bible Study, a journey through Luther’s Small Catechism. This wraps at noon.

All are welcome at Concordia! We encourage you to come as you are. Experience what it’s like to be debt free, your sins have already been paid for.

Help Send a CYT Student to Camp

Winter camp at Hartland is approaching fast. We’re doing all the fund-raising we can and thought we’d make it easy for anyone to help our kids out. In addition to our Meatloaf dinner, you can give directly to the camp fund at this link. Our kids’ experiences at Winter Camp are always fruitful and the memories made last a lifetime. If you feel compelled, please consider giving a little something to help out! Your contributions are ALL appreciated.

When it comes to fasting (for Lent), you have Christian freedom. You can fast or not fast. Fasting doesn't earn you any "brownie points" with God. Christ earned those for you. In fact. Christ perfectly fasted for you for 40 days in the wilderness. He gave you that righteousness at his resurrection. Fasting or not, your righteousness is the Lord. ... See MoreSee Less

The Unfolding of Faith: College Days and Scriptural Insights

Going away to college was one of the most transformative experiences of my life. I have referred to it many times in sermons. It is like a deep well with many stories. A few months after I started at the university, I joined a campus ministry. Some call it “parachurch...

Keeping Christ in Christianity

God’s Renovation Project: Our Journey from Sin to Salvation

One way I unwind is by watching improvement shows. It could be a home improvement show, a self-improvement show or even a car improvement show. It’s satisfying (as the kids nowadays like to say) to see transformations. About a week ago, I started watching a...

Away to pray

From Luke 5: 15Yet the news about him spread all the more, so that crowds of people came to hear him and to be healed of their sicknesses. 16But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. We are living in a very busy world. Things are changing and moving...

Restored by Grace: Finding Renewal in God’s Promise

A few weeks ago, I was staying at a family cabin in the sierras. It is close to a lake with warm water. On one of the days, I decided to float in an inner tube in the water. I sat there looking at the view across the lake. It was peaceful. A prominent hill covered in...
