Baptism: In Holy Baptism, a person is welcomed into God’s family and receives the forgiveness of sins, is rescued from death and the devil, and is given eternal life. Mark 16 states, “Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved…” In order to prepare for Baptism, a one session class is offered by Pastor Keller. Baptisms may be scheduled during any 9:00 am Worship service. Please call the church office for more information.
Pastoral Counseling: This is an opportunity to look at our hurts and pains in light of the Gospel. Individual Confession and Absolution is offered. If there are psychological issues that need to be addressed, a referral will be made. You may contact the church office to schedule an appointment.
Opportunities for Reconciliation: Are you having trouble with anger, resentment, or bitterness? Our reconciliation ministry has been developed to help you in these situations. Reconciliation is a biblical ministry which we offer to the community. It is biblical based pastoral coaching that helps people resolve anger and heal broken relationships. This process is not psychological counseling. If you would like to learn more, call Concordia to set up a consultation with Pastor Bill Keller. We would be glad to help you with these issues.
Weddings: Wedding are provided at Concordia were at least one member of the couple is a member of the church or is receiving instruction to become a member and are regularly attending worship. Pre-Marriage Instruction is required. All weddings at Concordia will use the marriage rite from the Lutheran Service Book, and all music will be approved by the Pastor. Contact the church office as soon as possible upon engagement to begin this exciting process.
Funerals: During this difficult time, we offer care and support to families who are grieving the loss of a loved one. Members are encouraged to call the church office so that we can assist you in planning this service and supporting refreshments following the service.
Hospital Calls: If you would like Pastor Keller to visit you while you are in the hospital, please schedule this appointment with the church office. Hospitals and Care Centers no longer provide any information to churches in order to protect your privacy. Priority is given to members in making these calls.
Home-bound Communion Calls: If you are a member of Concordia and are unable to attend the worship services because of illness and would like Pastor Keller to visit you to provide the Lord’s Supper please contact the church office. We also offer Shut-in Christmas and Easter Communion services for those unable to attend worship.
