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!

Nov. 29 -Dec. 13 
For The Night Ministry serving the homeless of Chicagoland, we bring in hats, gloves, and scarves. We are looking for mostly adult items, and asking that they be STURDY, WINTER ITEMS, rather than “magic gloves” which are very thin. SOCKS are also much needed. Deadline for donations is December 13 – the Night Bus will be delivering the items to people on December 22-24, so we need to pack up and ship ahead of time.
Also, we are doing LSSI’s Gifts for Kids again this year. Gift tags will be available in the narthex. Pick a tag, purchase a present, and bring it wrapped to church by Sunday, December 13th to be sent to LSSI in time for their Christmas Party.
Thanks again to Moni Ryczek, who will coordinate the gift tags. Contact her with questions at 847-692-6972. 
Thursday, Dec 3 
at 7pm in the MPR
We will discuss the book “The Art of Racing in the Rain” by Garth Stien. Book Club is open to anyone who enjoys reading. If anyone has any questions please contact Rich Levy at (847) 698-5838.
