What's Happening at messiah

  • Adult forum: "the chosen" video series

    An eight-week Adult Forum based on the innovative TV series, "The Chosen," is underway, meeting each Sunday in the Luther Center at 11:15am. This fresh, new approach shows Jesus through the eyes of his followers in the tradition of midrash or the Haggadah: stories that extend the text written in the Scriptures. Each week's video will be followed by a period of discussion—which we're certain will be lively.

    The series is free of charge, no homework assignments and snacks will be provided.

    Sponsored by Messiah's Stephen Ministry. Please contact Julie Kendrick at juliekendrick@comcast.net for details.

  • outdoor beautification project

    The Messiah Beautification Ministry is looking for volunteers!

    On Sunday, October 17th, the Ministry is holding a fun landscape improvement event. The project entails planting and mulching approximately 95 plants and bushes outside the Luther Center. The activity kicks off after the 9:30am service.

    Volunteers will also be rewarded with a light lunch offered by Messiah's own Hospitality Ministry.

    Please consider helping with this project even if only for an hour. Remember, "more hands make for light work".
