No matter where you come from or where you are going, you are welcome here.

CMC’s organizations gather around three tables: worship, faith formation, and service. Each of these tables encompasses several organizations, offering ways to get involved and delve deeper in faith.

For day-to-day information about what’s coming up, follow us on Facebook, sign up to receive CMC emails, email us at cmc@cord.edu, or join us for an event.

Worship

Campus Ministry Commission strives to encourage, equip, and engage students in practicing their faith and spiritual commitments in communal worship that is creative and innovative, rooted and welcoming.

Each Wednesday, while classes are in session, we gather in the Centrum at 9 p.m. for a service of Holy Communion.

Our campus pastors preach, student worship bands lead us in liturgy, and there are opportunities for students to be involved in hosting and leading, as our community worships together. Afterward, we share fellowship and food. Please join us. For more information, email worship@cord.edu.

Join us Monday through Thursday, while classes are in session, for daily chapel in the Centrum from 9:50 to 10:20 a.m. in the Knutson Campus Center.

On Mondays, we hear from a faculty or staff member. On Tuesdays, we gather for Sung Morning Prayer with special music offered by the music department. Our Wednesdays vary in nature but include monthly Morning Communion, poetry chapels, theatre chapels, and chapel on the road. On Thursdays, we hear from a senior student speaker with music led by our student worship band. For more information, email worship@cord.edu.

Faith Formation

Campus Ministry Commission strives to encourage, equip, and engage students in exploring their faith in dialogue with one another, scripture, and the world so that their faith formation may be deepened and broadened for the journey.

Various full year and short-term Bible and book studies are organized each year. In previous years, students have gathered around a particular book of the Bible, read Rachel Held Evans’ "Searching for Sunday," worked through Augsburg Fortress’ "Animate Faith," reflected on "Politics and Poetry," and explored Rob Bell’s "NOOMA" series. This page will be updated as information about future book studies becomes available. For more information, email faithformation@cord.edu.

Concordia’s FCA helps students engage passions for faith and athletics in worship, faith formation, and service. Student leaders plan and lead Bible studies, team devotionals, and opportunities to engage in faithful service in the greater F-M community. For more information, email faithformation@cord.edu.

All of Campus Ministry strives to be a safe space for all. Within our QPoF small group, we gather together to explore the intricacies of faith, spirituality, and tradition, past, present and future, and walk alongside one another as people of all identities striving to claim our places as LGBTQ and allies in the midst. For more information, email faithformation@cord.edu.

Need a break from studying? Do you miss singing camp songs and worshiping with others? Come and refresh with Tab every Thursday from 9-10 p.m. in the Wall Student Lounge, located above the Korn Krib. Want to lead a devotional or a skit and message? Let one of the leaders know. Hope to see you there! For more information, email faithformation@cord.edu.

Service

Campus Ministry Commission strives to encourage, equip, and engage students in enacting their faith in the context of a complex world by walking alongside one another in solidarity that lives out interdependence and mutuality.  

Habitat for Humanity is one of the most active campus chapters, sending more than 130 students in 6-7 service trips across the country each spring breakaway and an international trip in May every other year. In addition, Habitat for Humanity organizes a variety of on-campus and local events within the Fargo-Moorhead community. Through Habitat for Humanity, students are engaged in service in their community, build relationships with both students and community members, and explore underlying issues creating the need for affordable housing and the call of faith in responding to both immediate physical needs and long-term social complexities. Habitat for Humanity is a campus chapter of the local Habitat for Humanity affiliate, Lake Agassiz. For more information, email hfh@cord.edu.

Each academic year, Justice Journeys coordinates, recruits for, plans for, and executes three trips during spring breakaway, as well as occasional international trips in May, with the aim of encountering, engaging, learning, and accompanying an issue of justice by walking alongside people, organizations, and systems directly affected by and working toward justice. Topics and locations change each year. Each trip typically includes one faculty or staff advisor, two student leaders, and 8-12 student participants. For more information, email justicejourneys@cord.edu.

Outreach Community Teams partner teams of 4-10 students with various nonprofit and faith-related service organizations in the Fargo-Moorhead area each year. Within these relationships, each team walks alongside its outside partner organization throughout the academic year, spending 1-2 hours per week in service as a group. The goal of each partnership is to accompany one another faithfully in mutuality and interdependence, learning and receiving from one another. Teams spend time together exploring the intersection of faith and service. For more information, email orteams@cord.edu.

Through Social Justice Coalition, Concordia students are invited to meet at the intersection of faith and social justice, to engage the complexity of justice, and move toward thoughtful and informed action. Areas of focus shift based on current events and student interests and passions. In that way, this organization reconstitutes itself each year anew. For more information, email justice@cord.edu.
