Concordia Lutheran Church continues to grow

Thursday, January 3, 2019 by STEPHEN ALTHOUSE in Local News

Concordia Lutheran Church in Lower Macungie Township exists today because of the foresight of its founders at Concordia of Bethlehem nearly 35 years ago.

“That congregation realized the South Side Bethlehem neighborhood was changing and they were aging,” Concordia Pastor Waldemar Vinovskis said. “It was a real forward-looking group.”

That vision was harnessed by Pastor Raymond Malec, who on April 29, 1984, began worship services at Allen Organ’s Octave Hall.
