Drinking Water

Just like water is essential for life, Jesus says that “living water” is essential for abundant, eternal life with Christ. What is this living water? In this sermon on John 4:13-15, Pastor Jedidiah Maschke talks about what this is and what it means for our lives.


Introducing Jake Herold

Jake outside PortlandOctober 24th, 2013

To the Congregation of the First Lutheran Church of Concord:

My name is Jake Herold, and I am writing to introduce myself as the incoming DCE intern.

I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. My father, Chris, is a Lutheran principal, and my mother, Kellie, is a social worker.

For a large part of my life, I was strongly involved in the scouts, giving me a lifelong love of the outdoors. I’ve been involved with music and martial arts since a young age, and play guitar, timpani, auxiliary percussion, and sing baritone. I dabble in ukulele and bodhran as well.
