Our congregation was officially organized on May 7, 1954 with 35 people present. Since then, Messiah has thrived in the community, and has strived to make Christ’s love known to all who enter our doors – through worship, through education, through our facilities, and through fellowship.
Thank you for your interest in us. If you would like to learn more about us, or would like to become a part of the fellowship of Jesus Christ here at Messiah, please contact our pastor, either in person, by phone, by email, or with a letter. We look forward to hearing from you!

CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO DOWNLOAD YOUR OWN COPY!
Flat Jesus is a paper doll children cut out and color. He can accompany you by car, plane, via snail mail or go digitally. When Flat Jesus arrives at his destination, photograph and document his adventures. You can make multiple copies and even send Flat Jesus abroad. If you lose Flat Jesus, don’t worry he's right here (in electronic format)!
In September we will host a Welcome Home party for Flat Jesus, and see where he has been all summer!
UPCOMING SERMON SERIES
On July 26 and the last Sunday of each month until further notice, we will have a Cross+Gen sermon activity.
