Ministries

Social Ministry

Social Ministry at Concordia reaches out to community families-in-need by organizing a food basket fundraiser, which provides food baskets for these families at Thanksgiving. Social Ministry organizes Concordia’s school supplies drive for a local elementary school and the Operation Christmas Child project. Concordia’s participation in community ministries such as Family Promise (Interfaith Hospitality Network) and Kingsport Community Ministry Center (KCMC) is also organized within Social Ministry. Four or five times a year Concordia provides receptionists for a week at a time at KCMC. Concordia reaches out to KCMC clients by providing them with Bibles. Concordia serves as a support church for Family Promise (formerly Interfaith Hospitality Network), providing meals and volunteers for the homeless families sheltered in other community churches.

women's ministry

Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) Concordia’s women’s ministry group is affiliated with the National and Mid-South District Lutheran Women’s Missionary League. As the name implies its purpose is to further the spreading the Gospel. This is done by gathering “mites” for missions, promoting Bible study and helping women serve the Lord with their gifts and talents.

The group meets four times a year for planning and business meetings, sponsors bi-monthly afternoon Bible Studies, and coordinates a number of service projects throughout the year.

prayer ministry

Prayer services • Throughout the Church Year, various Feasts, Festivals and Commemorations are observed with a service of evening prayer.  These events help us appreciate the wider communion of saints and the faithfulness of God to preserve His Church throughout history.
