Sunday School builds a foundation for faith!  Messiah offers Sunday School and Bible Studies for all ages as well as First Communion instruction and Confirmation classes.

Outreach and Mission

We are a community-facing church! Messiah members are active and engaged in outreach activities that respond to the real-life needs of our friends and neighbors, near and far. 


Stewardship is more than annual pledge drives.   It’s using the gifts of time, talent, and treasure, which God has given every one of us to be active in the Church body.


We enjoy being together! Messiah offers fellowship groups for men, women, young adults, seniors and more! Fellowship is an essential part of getting to know your church family!

Music Camp

Messiah’s week-long music and drama summer camp will return in 2019 to foster a love of singing and acting through learning and presenting an all original musical.  
Open to all children in the community!
