Verse of the Day

"But it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." (Mark 10:43-45, ESV)

About the Church of the Messiah

Church of the Messiah

Church of the Messiah is located in historic Rhinebeck, New York, in the beautiful Hudson Valley.

We at Messiah are called to share the joy in our hearts. We seek to live in the power of the Spirit, welcoming all into our parish family. We strive to be a community where people are both comforted by God’s love and challenged to live lives of service in the world.

We meet for service at 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. every Sunday (recordings of the services may be found on Panda 23, Northern Dutchess County’s public access station).  We also have a Holy Communion service most Thursdays at 9 a.m. (please see calendar). We’re located at the corner of Montgomery Street (Rt. 9) and Chestnut Street in Rhinebeck Village, two blocks north of East Market Street.

Whoever you are and wherever you’re from, you are welcome in God’s house. We greet you with the hand of fellowship and the assurance of acceptance in our midst. Please join us, even if you’re just in town for the day!
