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!
PLEASE NOTE! We are excited to be adding on to the front of our building in an effort to make our church a more easily accessible space! We are OPEN during this construction process, which will take until about February 2014 - access is available on the northeast corner of the building.
OUR 50/50 Raffle is now in process! contact the office if you'd like to purchase a ticket! Drawing to be held on December 15th at noon. You do not have to be present to win.
