COVID-19 / Novel Coronavirus Update

The churches in our Upstate NY Synod have received a letter regarding worship and the Covid-19 virus from Bishop John Macholz.

In an effort to prevent the spread of the virus and to protect worshipers of all ages, he instructs us to cease having "in person" worship from Sunday, March 15th to Tuesday, March 31st when he will re-evaluate the situation.

Following his instructions, Concordia will have no worship services beginning March 15 until further notice.


In this unusual time, you can best stay in touch with us via our Facebook Page! Pastor Luisi has been active posting content and sharing lessons from Hoppy the Frog.


Electronic Giving - As you know, our bills continue to need paying even though we are in a Pause time. To make it easier for those who like to do bill paying and banking online, Concordia has partnered with Tithe.ly, a secure platform that allows you to give online or use a mobile app to give either one-time or recurring gifts.

To give, visit the link above, load one of the mobile apps or select Give Online. Once you establish your account with Tithe.ly, search for “Concordia Lutheran Church, Watertown, NY” and follow the prompts. Thanks to those who pay the minimal fee incurred by using the program. (ex. $1.49 for a $50 offering)

As always, for those who prefer to write a check, you may mail it to Concordia Lutheran Church, 818 Arsenal St., Watertown, NY 13601 and it will be taken to the bank and deposited into Concordia’s account.


Special thanks goes out to the Property Committee for their frequent and in-depth cleaning of the church.


If local law enforcement issues a "No unnecessary travel" advisory due to inclement weather, church services at Concordia will be canceled. If you are ever in doubt whether or not church will be held, you may call the parsonage at (315)782-1436; check our Facebook Page; or watch WWNY television for cancellations. If Ginny has your email address, she will send you a notification if canceled.


We have a new "Sharing Library" filled with books for all ages on Peace, Faith, or Justice. You can find it in the narthex by the front door... and check out a book, too!
