WC BLOG-whats happening this month

It’s spring and everything is new – the start of a new quarter, a new season. But the biggest celebration of all is that of the new life we have through Jesus conquering death. 

We can also celebrate what we’re currently blessed with. Giving us our bodies and minds, God calls us to do great things with them. He also calls us to be good stewards of these gifts while we patiently await His return.

The beautifully complex beings that we are can be a challenge to care for at times. As partners in caring for your co-workers, Concordia Plans organizes efforts to tend to all the parts of our wellness. Here’s what’s coming up!
