Growing ~ Embracing ~ Serving
Mission & Vision
Our Mission: To worship, witness, follow and serve Jesus Christ as Lord.
Our Vision: Christ in us; God's glory manifested!
What we believe
Concord Church is grounded in scripture, molded by God, seeking to serve our community by showing Christian love and compassion for the physical and spiritual well-being of all. This is our vision which our mission supports. This is our expected outcome as we grow, embrace and serve.
GROWING! A key value is growing in our relationship with God. Whether we have been believers for many decades or just a few days, we all have room to grow. We prayerfully design opportunities to help you grow in your relationship with God and we want you to take full advantage of the opportunities that call to you. We are also open to your ideas and ways you may help others grow as you grow. Our expectation is that you grow towards God and with other believers here at Concord Church. We also expect to grow as a community of faith. You are encouraged to invite others to join our growing fellowship of believers.
EMBRACING! We embrace each other and we embrace God. Relationships are key at Concord Church. We look to form meaningful relationships with each other and with God. Our aim is to ensure the welcoming embrace does not end because God always welcomes us. We hope you will look for people to embrace here at Concord and in our community too.
SERVING! Service is a key expectation of all our members. God has given you specific gifts and abilities, some of which no one else has. We want you to use those gifts in Jesus’ name. Perhaps it is a ministry or mission project that is already in existence...or perhaps it is a new endeavor you will help us create. In all cases, our relationship with Jesus compels us to take action. We are all active servants of God engaged in meaningful work in the church and in the community, all in Jesus’ name.
What to expect
Concord offers two worship services every Sunday. Both services have Communion on the first Sunday of every Month. Our nursery is available during both worship times as well as during Sunday School classes 9:55AM - 10:45AM.
8:30AM Contemporary Worship
Grab your coffee and come as you are for Concord's worship in the Fellowship Hall. Sing along with our small group of vocalists, guitars and keyboard, with lyrics and scripture verses shown on digital displays. Stay for coffee, eats and Sunday School or head out to get a jump on the beautiful day.
11:00AM Traditional Worship
Bring your family, friends and neighbors to enjoy the familiar embrace of worship in the Sanctuary. Enjoy special songs from the choir. Come early to fellowship with friends at coffee time or join a Sunday School class.
Stay tuned... under construction.
Pastor Tom Newman
I was born and raised in rural Alamance County, North Carolina. We didn’t farm, per se, but we did survive on hand-sewn clothes and whatever we could produce from an acre or two of land. My family wasn’t religious and we didn’t attend church. But when I was 12 my grandmother convinced my parents to take my younger sister to Vacation Bible school - I was just along for the ride. Or so I thought. Ever since that first VBS, I have been hungry to be in church. I felt a call into ministry while a teenager and consider myself the most blessed person I know because today, I get to come to church every day!
