Serve

"I was hungry and you gave me food to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger and you welcomed me. I was naked and you gave me clothes to wear. I was sick and you took care of me. I was in prison and you visited me... I assure you that when you have done it for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you have done it for me. " -Matthew 25:35-36, 40

At Concord we believe in putting our faith into action. We want to share the good news of Jesus with others, both in word and deed. Here are some of the ways you can help out with our outreach ministries.

Food Pantry

Hours of Operation - Open arrangements made based upon need.  We have a food box give away the third Thursday of each month. On that day the food pantry is open from 1-2pm for the boxes to be picked up. We serve disabled persons, senior citizens, and low income families that need a little extra help during the month.
Monetary or Food Donations are accepted and greatly appreciated and help cut down on the food pantry cost when rendered. At present, we are collecting aluminum cans and the proceeds from that goes to the food pantry account.
