Concordia Launches Social Media Presence

Cabot, PA - To further spread the Concordia Lutheran Ministries mission, the organization has officially launched a social media presence that features an organizational blog, Facebook Page, Twitter account and YouTube channel.

The blog will discuss topics related to senior care, health care, local and foreign missionary work and Concordia in general, and will be updated every Tuesday.

According to Pew Research Center:

  • Social networking use among internet users ages 50 and older has nearly doubled -- from 22% to 42% over the past year.
  • Half (47%) of internet users ages 50-64 and one-in-four (26%) users ages 65 and older now use social networking sites.

"As more and more people use the Internet and social networking websites to get information, Concordia has an opportunity to 'serve our aging community' (part of the Concordia mission statement) in new and creative ways," said Shirley Freyer, director of public relations at Concordia.

The simplest way to access Concordia's social networking sites is through the "News" page on the organization's website - go to and click on the "News" link on the left. Links to the social networking sites can be found from there.
