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.

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...

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...
