Rent the Facility

We are currently in a building project for a new Center for Christian Education. Due to the construction restrictions, we can not rent to outside groups at this time. This includes member and nonmember events such as birthday parties, showers, book clubs, etc. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Open for rentals again in Fall 2019

Concordia Lutheran Church is located just a short distance from the heart of old town Kirkwood. As our church facilities are available for rent to both members and non-members, consider renting our facilities for your event. Fill out the Building Use Form below.
