Christ gave us pastors and teachers so they may help us understand and learn the word of God. When we know the word of God and apply it to our lives, we live a life pleasing to God. We will no longer succumb to the deceitful schemes of man. We will be equipped to serve your fellow man to the glory of God. To this end, Concordia offers the resources shown below to help you mature your faith.
Before you start out on the path of learning God’s word, take time to refresh your understanding of the Gospel. The Gospel can be found at “Gospel”
Small group Bible studies are fellow believers studying God’s word and sharing their understanding and different perspectives. You will discover that you learn more with this interactive involvement. No one is pressured to participate. Best of all, you are with like minded people dedicated to spiritual growth.
The current Bible studies are:
We want to teach everyone the truths of scripture. Most importantly we want to teach these biblical truths to our children and young adults to give them the knowledge, skills, and values to grow into mature Christians. Sunday School develops a community of believers, gives children a chance to ask questions, and helps children respect, appreciate, and utilize the Bible.
The current Sunday School schedule is:
All Sunday School classes meet at 9:30 am on Sunday morning.
To serve those who cannot make it to a regular Sunday Worship service, we provide a Home Worship as one way of meeting your worship needs. It also contains a recommended Bible reading schedule for the week. Our Pastor and Elders visit our homebound members and administer communion, pray with them, and provide a short worship. Please note we are in the process of providing the viewing of our Church service live over the internet.

Concordia Lutheran Church voluntarily choose to be affiliated with the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS). This affiliation means we share the belief system espoused by LCMS. For those who would like a more in-depth description of this belief system, please go to the following site (LCMS).
Here at Concordia, we are thankful for the many visitors and guests who come to our worship services. Our pastor and congregation love to meet new people, and to share the love of Christ with one and all. Our church is located in a growing community, and every week we meet newcomers to the Hagerstown area who are looking for a church.
Are you considering joining our congregation? Would you like to learn more about the Lutheran Christian faith? Do you want to know how to get involved in the ministry life of Hope?
If you would like to know more about the mission and vision of Concordia, we invite you to attend the next New Member Class. This 8-week class is held twice annually here at Concordia, and the next session is (TBA). Pastor Mark Moretz leads this class, which meets on (TBA). Activities for children and youth of all ages are available through Sunday School during the class time. All are welcome.
The New Member Class is a prerequisite for membership at Concordia, but there is no requirement to join the church if you do sit in on the class. It is simply a great opportunity to learn more about the mission of Concordia, build relationships, get to know the pastor, and discuss issues relevant to your faith journey. If you are interested in attending Concordia’s New Member Class, email Pastor Mark, to receive information as the next class approaches.
