Capital Campaign

Our building and property need our love.

Our roof, parking lot, wooden eaves, and gutters all need major repairs or replacement next year. We are asking every family and individual to commit to a special gift for these projects on Reformation Sunday, October 28th.
Ready to make a commitment? You can fill out the form below! You are also able to set up your giving online to include your commitment to the capital campaign. If you’d like to RSVP to our delicious celebratory luncheon on October 28th, please email Phyllis Sneed. Join us!

Celebrate with Us

Sunday, September 30th

St. Francis of Assisi was an important Christian leader in the 12th century. He is known for his dedication to the poor and his emphasis of a love for all creation. His life and work is usually commemorated on October 4th.

We’re taking his feast day as an opportunity to mark our own dedication and celebration of God’s gifts in creation on Sunday, September 30th. Join us for a special day of worship with music, prayers and reflections! If weather permits, we will hold worship outside during the 9:30am service with a special pet blessing. You are invited to bring your pet to be blessed by the pastors.

SEPT 9th Service Time Change

Join us as we “rally” together as a congregation and celebrate the start-up of many of our programs after a summer break. Rather than our normal 3 services, we have two worship services that morning.

8:00am Traditional Service

10:00am Combined (Traditional & Contemporary) Worship Service

Followed by a Meal, Ministry Fair and Games for children and youth!

Our Mission: Summer Sermon Series

As part of a year-long process, leaders at Messiah worked together to discern God’s vision for us and how to move forward in that vision. Our new mission statement now reads: “Filled with the Holy Spirit, we worship and serve as one body of Christ to share God’s love.” 

This summer we are reflecting on our new mission statement and the values of Messiah that shape our mission.  Join us as we celebrate the gifts God has given us and the new thing God is doing in us and through us!
