Forward in Faith

On October 28th, 2018, we voted to approve the financing of a major expansion of our campus.  Regular updates and information will be posted here as soon as it is made public.

Building & Financial Committees

These committees will continue to meet regularly to develop the specifics for the construction of the new building and to monitor the financial health of Messiah.
Updates can be found at the link below: 

Call Committee

We’re excited about the prospect of adding a 3rd pastor to our ministry team.
If you’d like to read more about the vision for our third pastor, or find updates from the call committee, use the button below to find more info.

Outbuilding Construction

We started construction on a 40 x 56 foot building to house our tractor, both vans, and plenty of things that need storage throughout the course of the year.   Click below or the latest updates to this project.

Who We Are

We’re followers of Christ who believe God has called us to Love Him first and then to share that love with those around us.  We share Christ by helping to meet the needs of our friends, neighbors and all those we live and work with. 

What We Believe

Messiah Lutheran Church is a community of believers who regularly gather to:
• Give thanks, praise, and glory to our Redeeming God
• Confess our sins and receive His promised forgiveness
• Hear His Word in its truth and purity
• Sing His praises; and to share in His sacraments.


Wednesday Nights

On Wednesday nights we gather together as a family to spend some time in God’s Word.
Here’s what you can expect:
5:30 – 6:15 – The gym is open for those that would like to share a meal.  You can purchase food from Messiah, or bring your own.  If you plan to purchase food, you must sign up in advance (No later than the end of the day on the Sunday prior).  
6:15 – 6:30 – Everyone gathers in the sanctuary for a song and opening devotion.
6:30 – 7:30 – Everyone will gather in their respective classes.  Bible classes are for pre-school through adults.  The nursery will also be provided for all children under the age of 3. 
Please register in advance, even if you may only be attending occasionally.  You can click on this link to register.  If you’d like to volunteer to help on Wednesday nights, you can also do that by clicking the link in the previous sentence.

Find Us

The best way to get to know us is by experiencing Messiah yourself! We’d love for you to join us for a service or contact us to learn more about our church community.
