Verse of the Day

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. (1 Corinthians 13:4-6, ESV)

2014 Confirmation and First Communion

We have received a date for confirmation here at Messiah, on Sunday, October 5, 2014.  We will begin a confirmation class for young people 12 years and older later in the winter.  In addition we will plan a first communion class for our young people later in the spring.  If interested in participating speak to Fr. Richard.

Messiah Veterans


Fr Richard has discovered that our commemoration of the men and women of Messiah who served in the armed forces ends with WW II.  We would like to create an accurate list of our Messiah veterans from subsequent armed conflicts, if you know of a veteran from our parish please submit their name and when they served to the parish office.

Stewardship Update

Thank you to all who have submitted their pledges and have responded so generously. To date we have received 86 pledges totaling $143,600. This brings us closer to our goal of 105 pledges and $160,000. Pledging helps the parish plan and budget for the upcoming year. There are green pledge cards available on the table in the narthex. Thank you for your continued support of Messiah with your time, talent, and treasure.
