Gathering around God’s Word is central to the church community at Messiah. Services are mostly traditional, though contemporary settings and worship are offered.


Music is a treasured gift from God. Messiah offers a range of music ministries for singers, musicians, and bell-ringers throughout the year for all ages. Rehearsal times vary.

Youth Programs

Faith enriching learning and fellowship activities for upper elementary (MOES), Junior, and Senior High Youth are offered throughout the year. Get your youth involved today.


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

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