From the President's Desk
In the book of Matthew, Jesus tells the parable of the talents, where a master who is leaving town entrusts three servants with his property. When the master returns, he asks the servants how they handled the property given to them – one servant simply buried his share in the ground, while the other two worked to double their shares.
To the servants who prospered with what was given to them the master said: “‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!’” Matthew 25:21.
Like those two servants, we at Concordia believe it is our responsibility to be mindful stewards of the gifts God has entrusted to us. And since everything we have belongs to Him, it is our duty to follow the examples set in scripture.
Without the generosity of our friends in Christ, it would be impossible for us to carry out the Concordia mission: To serve our aging community with a continuum of high quality caregiving options, provided in a Christian environment, and to serve those with limited funds to the best of our ability. And we are forever grateful for every gift we receive.
On the following pages you will find the various funds at Concordia, as well as the traditional and creative ways you can support them. I encourage you to contact our Office of Development at 724.352.1571, ext. 8363 with any questions you may have and to visit one of our facilities to see your generosity in action. At Concordia, we say “We Put Our Faith in Caring,” and it shows in everything we do. Thank you and God bless.
