From 11:00 am to 1:00 pm, we will serve. Follow this link to sign up!
The 3rd Annual Adult Mission Trip is scheduled for July 17-21. We will travel to East St. Louis and partner with Lutheran Social Services of Illinois to help with a prison re-entry project. All ages (high school and older) and all skill levels are welcome! Registration begins Sunday, April 28.
The High School Youth Mission Trip will be to Benton Harbor, Michigan from July 7-12. Contact our youth director Jessica Wallwin for more information.
Help Melt the Snow Deficit: When it rains, it pours...and when it snows, we salt (and plow)! Mother Nature's gift of an active winter left us with more snow removal and salt costs that planned. We need additional support to ensure our 2019 budget stays on track. Our goal in this effort was to raise $10,000. We are thankful for the approximately $4,800 raise so far. If you would like to participate, please take a snowflake in the Gathering Place representing your commitment and place your gift in a special offering envelope, or you can donate directly from our website using the "donate" tab at the top of the webpage. Thank you for everything you do and give to bless Messiah! - Messiah's Generosity team
Sunday School is on summer break and will resume in August.
Adult Book Study - Join us for a group study of Pastor Ben's 2018 book, "Sacred Signposts: Words, Water, and Other Acts of Resistance." What are the most important, sacred "possessions" of Christian people? And what do they matter in a world that seems to be less and less religious? Over seven weeks, we'll talk about the Word of God, baptism, Holy Communion, confession and forgiveness, ministry, worship, and the Cross - what they mean, and what they do in our world. Come for one week or all of them! Childcare is provided. Sundays at 11:00 am -12:30 pm from April 28 - June 16.
