Sunday Service 10:30am

We offer a wide variety of opportunities for adults to connect with each other.

Focus Studies

Focus studies are short-term (typically 6-12 weeks) and meet throughout the week. Subjects range from Bible basics, to topics on Christian living, and moving on to in-depth study of passages and entire books of Scripture, and even exploring doctrine and theology.

Hospitality is one of the best ways to live out the commandment to love your neighbor as yourself, but it’s easy to get so stressed out over what other people may think about us and our home that we just pass on the idea altogether. This DVD-based series by Jen Schmidt shows us how to move beyond cultural expectations and look to Jesus as our model for biblical hospitality, learning to love people and reflect Jesus through simple acts of service. Childcare not available.

How can a good God allow innocent people to suffer? Is it reasonable to believe in the supernatural? How can science and faith possibly go together?

Connection Classes

Connection Classes are often the first level of connection at Concord. These meet year-round at 9am on Sunday mornings (much like your traditional Sunday school classes) and last about an hour. The goal of Connection Classes is to help you connect with others at Concord who are in a similar life stage and/or share your interests. These classes provide opportunity for fellowship, Bible study, and prayer support and will help you begin to put down roots at Concord.

Foundations

Foundations is designed for new Jesus-followers and for those who want to brush up on the basics of the Christian faith. You’ll discover what the Bible says about what we believe, why we believe it, and how we live it out in our lives. Foundations is offered in two 19-week series per year, and any missed classes can be made up during any series of Foundations. 2019 sessions are listed below.

Support Groups

Support groups bring together people with common interests and experiences that can relate to what you are going through and keep you from feeling alone. A support group can help you affirm your thoughts and feelings and help you connect socially. As members of a support group share their personal experiences, offer emotional comfort, moral support, and tips to help one another through their situations, stress, anxiety and fear can be reduced leading to happier, healthier lives.
