First Lutheran has been blessed with the service and guidance of four Pastors in its 75 year history in Concord. Last year Rev Jedidiah Maschke, our pastor since 2008, was extended and accepted a Holy Call to serve as Pastor of Bethlehem Lutheran Church and School in Carson City, Nevada.
We are greatful for the dedicated service of Pastor Maschke, for the support given by his wife, Anna, and the cheerfulness and joy of their childeon, Ali, Jerimiah, and Abi.
We are most fortunate to have Reverend Dann Ettner serving as interim Pastor. Reverend Ettner has served many years as a congregational Pastor, and recently retired as a senior Army Chaplain.
First Lutheran has started the process to Call a new permanent Pastor; please call the church office with any questions you may have. Thank you for your prayers as we seek the man God has planned fo our congregaion.
