About Concordia Lutheran Church

We are a Lutheran church community located in the Woodland area of Duluth, MN. For detailed statistical information, view our ELCA congregational information.

Vision Statement:

Empowered by the Holy Spirit, to make disciples of ourselves and others by intentional nurture of these Faith Practices:

  • To worship and glorify God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
  •  To pray unceasingly
  •  To watch and to wait for God's guidance
  •  To be obedient to God
  •  To love God and to love and serve others
  •  To seek to have the Word dwell in us richly
  •  To be sent as God's apostles in all arenas of our lives


Our church was organized on July 1, 1942, under the direction of the Board of American Missions, Augustana Lutheran Church, with thirty-two charter members. Our first church building was located on Woodland Ave and Faribault Street in 1947.  

In 1959, the parish purchased a six acre tract at Woodland Ave and Fairmont Street as the site for our current church.  The current building was dedicated in September, 1962.  In 1988, Concordia became part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA).
