In line with the guidance of public officials and health experts, worship at Messiah Lutheran in Park Ridge will be canceled until further notice. 

 This is a difficult decision to make, since the gathering of the people of God is central to our life of faith. But it is the wise step for us to take as we seek to do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19 virus, protect the vulnerable, and help ease the burden on healthcare systems.

We will be in touch with you soon regarding further changes in worship and programs over the coming weeks. We will also keep you posted on other ways we can stay connected.  


During this time of uncertainty it is of the utmost importance that we continue to service those in need in our community. The Assistance ministry team will continue to make and service lunches for our guests, with a slight alteration. You are welcome to come up to the door, ring the bell, and a team member will bring you a bagged lunch.  We will continue to serve lunch in this manner until we receive further details. Many blessings to you and stay well!

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!
