“And a child shall lead them.”

Come, be led by our children in worship! Sunday, April 28th at 9:30 our service will be led by our Youth Praise Band and include gifts of music from our Messiah Christian School students. Continue the celebration after service with food, fellowship, MCS Art Show and a Bounce House.

Release or Keep?

The youth of Messiah Lutheran Church have kidnapped Pastor Karl and are keeping him in an undisclosed location. In an effort to raise money for their mission trips, they give you two options: give money to release Pastor Karl or to keep Pastor Karl. The choice is yours.

Donations will be collected on Sunday, March 31st, all morning long.
