The 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, Christmas, and Easter. Gifts for family members are included in the Christmas basket.  Social Ministry organizes Concordia’s school supplies drive for a local elementary school and the Operation Christmas Child project. Concordia’s participation in KCMC and IHN is 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 Interfaith Hospitality Network, providing meals and volunteers for the homeless families sheltered in other community churches.
