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!
