2018-2019 Annual Report

We've done a lot this year.

We want to share that with you.

Annual Report 2018-2019

Letter From Pastor


Concordia’s mission is building generations who live and love like Jesus.   That’s why we’ve committed to creating environments and experiences that bring generations together.    In 2010, we launched Concordia at Windingwalk, and we are starting to see some of the fruit of that strategy as the generations are growing up.


In addition to our traditional CLASSIC worship, we have developed a FAMILY worship experience  and family growth groups which have served as the primary connection point for young families.     Our preschool has grown to 250 students and our afterschool program reaches another 60 students.


As part of our continuing emphasis on bringing generations together in ministry, we called Alex Parker to coordinate family ministry at Concordia.  With prayer and logistical support from the entire congregation we also took our first ever family mission trip to Guatemala.


We recently completed a message series on Following Jesus    Our ministry strategy is developed  around 5 key steps in growing to live and love like Jesus:  Believe; Join the Mission; Invite a Friend; Choose Community; and Give Generously. 


This annual report will highlight how we did in each of those key areas in 2018-2019, as well as setting our ministry challenges for the coming year.  To jump directly to an underlined item of interest, click on that link.
