At long last we can say it: We will gather for worship indoors! We rejoice that the drop in Covid rates and the increase in vaccinations have allowed state officials to lift restrictions, hitting the milestone that Messiah’s Executive Committee has been waiting for to resume worship indoors.
In this time of reopening, businesses and organizations can continue to set their own rules. Therefore, recognizing that not all worshipers are vaccinated and that some people are not able to be vaccinated, we are asking that for the time being masks be worn and social distancing observed.
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 list.  


Assistance Ministry Announcement

We are excited to announce that our Assistance Ministry program will resume serving and welcoming vaccinated guests into the building for a sit down lunch beginning Monday, June 14th from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm. We look forward to seeing our guests!

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!
