Honor and Followership

The Fourth Commandment, about honoring our parents, has implications that reverberate throughout all of society. But just because someone is in a position of authority, it doesn’t mean that we need to obey without question. How do we tell the difference between who to obey and who not to? Listen to this sermon from Pastor Jedidiah Maschke to find out what the Bible says about those to whom we owe obedience, and those to whom we don’t. 

Bye, bye to our old Internet Domain

First Evangelical Lutheran Church and First Lutheran Christian Preschool BOTH previously used the domain name "firstlutheranconcord.org" for their Internet services.  Several months ago we switched to new, shorter names and the old domain has been retired.

When corresponding with the chuch please use domain "flcconcord.org", and "flpsconcord.org" for the Preschool.

The old domain will still "work" until mid-March, and then go inactive.  Other organizations may purchase the domain at that point, and it will no longer be associated with First Lutheran.
