200 Years of Concord
Concord was founded 200 years ago and we will be coming together to celebrate that anniversary with two former pastors. Bruce Jones will be preaching on September
15th, and Art Thomas will be the keynote speaker at the reception to follow. Food and beverages will be served and we hope for a great turnout. Please reach out to current and former church members to join us for this very special event! I would be delighted if you offered to host people from out of town to keep their expenses low.

MISSIONS DINNER on August 17th, 6:30 p.m.
EVERYONE IS INVITED for a fun evening of fellowship (food provided by the Missions Committee) as we host Ms. Sarah Wainaina and other African Karura friends who will bring us updates on CSA’s important Karura Mission.
Since 1996, CSA has developed a strong relationship with the Karura Ka Nyungu Primary School (formerly called Mikui Primary) in Nairobi, Kenya. Through donations from members and friends of Karura, we have provided school uniforms, educational, and school supplies to help “the neediest of the needy” children stay in school and receive an education. In 2017, because of hunger, we accepted the challenge to add the goal of providing a before school and lunch food program to feed 50 of the neediest students.
We look forward to this time of sharing with each other. Please save the date now!
