Confirmation

Confirmation Program

At Messiah, we sponsor a two-year confirmation program for eighth and ninth grade students. Confirmation at Messiah is about faith formation, not simply faith information. We focus upon being the church not teaching about the church. Our program includes learning events, fellowship events, service events, worship events.  If you are interested in Confirmation classes for yourself or your child, please talk to Pastor Peterson or call the Church Office at 721-0041.

Weddings

Getting married is one of the most important decisions in your lives. Your desire to have a church wedding indicates that you see your marriage as a commitment made before God, with emphasis on the Christ-centered character of the wedding service.  While there is room for flexibility in a church wedding, these guidelines are meant to make planning easier and more enjoyable.  If you are interested in a Wedding for yourself or your child, please talk to Pastor Peterson or call the Church Office at 721-0041.

It is the policy of Messiah Lutheran Church that we provide this service for members only.

Funeral Hostesses

This caring group of ladies can assist in planning a memorial or funeral reception.  Contact the church office if you would like to utilize this service.

Columbarium

a special facility for the care and safekeeping of cremated remains.  The name Columbarium is derived from the Latin Columba or “Dovecote”, the dove being the symbol of God’s spirit and peace.

Messiah has established a Columbarium on Church property to meet the needs of its congregation. In the peaceful beauty of the Sanctuary,  lives are memorialized. The ashes reposed in the walls of the columbarium are commended to the glory of God and a reminder to all the we one day will experience the Resurrection.

Pass the Peace!
