Concordia Lutheran Church was started in 1960 by six families, and officially came into being in
November, 1961, with the adoption of a constitution and bylaws. The first meetings were in the
Junior Fire Hall on North Potomac Street. Acceptance into the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod
followed in April of 1962. By December of that year, baptized membership had grown to 75, and the
group moved to a large garage on Jefferson Blvd. In November, 1968, a groundbreaking service was
held for our own building, and services were moved to the Halfway Fire Hall.
On October 12, 1969, our present church building on Garden Lane was dedicated. The Education wing
was completed and dedicated in 2006. A long awaited elevator was finished and placed into use in
early 2011. We still await the opportunity to finish the large unused space in the lower level
as a new fellowship hall.
