Worship is by livestream only on Sunday, January 2. 
With COVID-19 once again surging around us, the decision has been made to cancel in-person worship at Messiah starting Sunday, Dec. 26, 2021.
Our services will continue to be posted on Messiah's YouTube and Facebook channels using pre-recorded material.
Even amid Covid, we celebrate the birth of Jesus, our Savior and Messiah. With hope in Christ, we pray for God's peace to come to us and to our world. 
The Executive Committee and Pastor David will continue to monitor guidelines and provide updates as they change. As we've learned this past year and a half, its important that we remain flexible and adapt to these changes as they are presented. We are doing our part to protect one another, our families, our neighbors, and the wider community. Please contact the church office if you have any questions.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Worship services will continue to be posted on the Messiah Lutheran Church Facebook group.  To receive worship notifications, you can subscribe to our email list by selecting the About Us tab on the left, then click join our email listIf you need help accessing either viewing platforms please reach out to the church office and we can help. Thanks to Paul Holzer for making sure we can participate virtually in worship for the last 4 years!


Assistance Ministry Announcement

We have come to the decision to suspend in-person Monday meals starting this coming Monday, Dec. 27.  The omicron variant is so contagious that we cannot take a chance to have folks gather for a meal.  We are being cautious for both our volunteers and the guests.  We will offer a warm meal to go and a lunch to go and distribute canned goods and clothing as needed. Thank you for your understanding.

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!
