Dear Saints,

Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ! The board of the ministry of Christian Concourse recently held our annual meeting. Our discussion began with our financial circumstances for the year thus far. Also, we looked at our annual report to the Consumer Affairs Division of the State of Virginia which we submitted in April. But, what may be considered the most important dimension of our discussions was our sharing letters and notes of appreciation. As we send out the free materials we have developed for use in Christian ministry in care facilities they are received with gratitude universally. To encourage you, our supporters, we want to bless you, too, with a sampling of the positive correspondence that some have sent back to us.

"I just wanted to send you a quick thank you for the beautiful work you do for our Lord. I have shared your ministry with other nursing homes who don’t always have a minister for a church service as well. I know my residents here love your DVD & really appreciate all the thought, love and devotion you both put into your calling.....♥" C. G., Life Enrichment Coordinator.

"Just wanted to reach out and say how much I appreciate the devotions that are found on your site. They are well written and are so well received by those we minister to. May God continue to bless the work you do!" E. A.

"The books & CDs arrived in good condition & we have put them to use. Thank you for serving our Lord and His people faithfully! We trust that many souls will be saved and believers edified, as we serve "together," for His glory. God bless you, in Christ’s love." C. & J. C.

"We wanted to send a "shout out" to say "Thank you" for the Favorite Hymns of Grace & Christian Christmas Carols. These books have and will continue to be a blessing to our Nursing Home Ministry & to our church. We are grateful that you put these books together as you did!" T. H.

"Dear Friends in Christ, It’s wonderful knowing people as kind and considerate as you are. So generous! Thank you for all you’ve done. Thank you so much for the care center ministry materials. Over 100 songbooks! We will use them. We are part of [a church in New Jersey] and have four centers we go to. God bless." M. M.

"Jerry and Dar, May the Lord bless you, refresh you, and meet your every need. Thank you so much for your very helpful materials. I use them daily; and many are blessed. Your hymn booklets bring happiness to lonely and hurting people and encourage everyone to press on!" C. K.


We pass these beautiful words of thanks from recipients of our materials because you, our supporters, are a vital link in the chain of providing these very useful ministry tools without charge. They are produced and supplied for the residents at no cost because we would never ask or expect them to have to pay for them. It is always such a blessing to be able to encourage the nursing home ministers and staff members to share them freely. Thank you so much for your help!

We appreciate your taking the time to read this letter. If you do not currently contribute regularly to this ministry, we ask that you prayerfully consider doing so. We need your assistance. Donations are greatly appreciated and vital to sustain this work!  Please do not assume that someone else is taking care of it.  Prayerfully consider what the Lord would have you do.  Christian Concourse is a non-profit, tax-exempt corporation registered since 1994 with the Internal Revenue Service and the State of Virginia.  Financial support for this Christian ministry comes from those who see what we do and want to support it.  We are not underwritten or endowed by formal agreement with any denomination or group. Also, please note that no donation is accepted as payment or in consideration for any product or service which we may provide.  As far as we are concerned, all offerings are completely between you and how you feel the Lord Jesus is leading you in your charitable giving.  Certainly, we are honored by your prayerful consideration.

 

Love in Christ,

Jerry and Dar

"Comforting Words of Grace, Number Two" is ready!!! We are honored and blessed to be able to announce that the second DVD in the series, "Comforting Words of Grace" is now complete and ready for distribution. (View the segments of these DVDs here.)  Using the same format as the first in the series, this hour-long video plays the instrumental and vocal renditions of nine hymns from the middle of our hymn booklet, "Favorite Hymns of Grace" while showcasing many short clips of God’s wonderful, beautiful creation. During the instrumentals, scriptures are displayed on the screen and read out loud that relate to the message in each song. We have prepared and produced this resource and make it available upon request, at no charge (as resources allow), as a tool for ministry especially geared for the elderly, the infirm and those suffering from dementia.
