Fellowship Groups and Activities
Potluck Luncheons We couldn’t be Lutherans without them! The meal starts right after late service in the Parish Hall. Watch the event calendar for details and sign-up info. Open to all.
OWLs (Older Wiser Lutherans)
The OWLs are a loosely knit group of folks over 50 years of age who get together once a month for an activity. The activities range from a Potluck at the church to Sunday brunch at a restaurant and a visit to the Botanical Garden to attending the “Living Christmas Tree” concert. Contact Jan Murphy for more info.
Foodies – Faith, Food & Fellowship
Foodies is a rotating dinner club for Messiah Lutheran singles and couples that takes place in members’ homes once a month. The small group setting is a great way to connect with other Messiah members. A brief devotional is prepared monthly. Groups range in size from six to eight adults and get together three to four times during the “Round” which lasts roughly four to five months (Fall, Winter/Spring). Contact Dana Burton to get involved.
Church Picnic / Rally Day
The annual church picnic is held in conjunction with Sunday School Rally Day, which celebrates the start of the new Sunday School year- usually in mid-August!
Halloween Costume Party
Christmas Ornament & Tool Exchange Brunch
This festive event is usually held in early December. Participants bring a brunch dish to share and choose to bring an ornament or wrap up a tool. All ages are welcome.
Easter Egg Hunt
The Easter Egg Hunt is held the Saturday before Palm Sunday. Everyone is welcome to enjoy searching for hidden eggs- especially the RESURRECTION EGGS!
