Ladies of Concord, have you ever had a question you didn’t know how to answer, or a problem you didn’t know how to solve? The Bible gives us tools to help us with this, and some of those tools come from the “one another’s” of the Word of God. 

On Saturday, September 21, from 6 pm - 8 pm, in Concord's Lower Hall the Women's Ministry will be hosting a special Titus Two dinner and discussion panel. You will have an opportunity to submit questions to a group of ladies who will have the opportunity to answer faithfully from the Word of God and their own life experiences. Please submit questions through the offering plate envelopes or by adding a question HERE when you register. Please RSVP by September 12.

We are excited about this event and hope that it will be a time of encouragement and practical help!

Bound for Glory: Preparing Well for the End of Life

Bound for Glory: Preparing Well for the End of Life

Many Christians face the end of life with little preparation. They are ready to see Jesus, but they often are unprepared to deal with many of the decisions that need to be made before saying goodbye to family. How can we care well for our loved ones as we head into glory? What are some of the most pressing medical and legal issues that we should consider? What instruction does God give us about death and dying?

We would like to invite you to a special Saturday morning seminar called Bound for Glory, in which we discuss these end-of-life issues together. If you are a senior adult, or caring for aging parents, or simply someone who is coming to grips with your own mortality, this seminar is for you. The seminar will be led by Pastor David King, Dr. Bill Horton, and attorney (and beloved former member) Vance Fry.

Make plans to join us on Saturday morning, August 3, from 8:30 am – Noon. The cost of the seminar is FREE, but please let us know you’re coming by calling the church office (423) 892-9313, by speaking to one of the pastors, or by registering HERE.
