Church School Carnival


The last day of church school will be Sunday, May 31st  from 9:45-11:30. Our church school will be holding a carnival to benefit the Episcopal Charities.


We will have fun games to play, face painting and prizes!  We will also be having a bake sale! If you are able to make baked goods for the students to sell, please bring them in on Sunday, May 31st  and label them “Carnival Bake Sale”.


We also need volunteers to help make signs, set up, run the games and clean up. Volunteers are asked to be at Messiah at 8:30 am to set up the carnival.  Please contact me via e-mail, if you are able to help.

Thank you  for your continued support of Messiah’s youth programs.

New Ministry


If anyone would be willing to help some of our parishioners with the paperwork associated with an illness, there are a number of people who could use help dealing with the various insurance forms and phone calls that accompany medical care.  It would be a short term offer of assistance following a hospitalization or critical care.  If interested in helping please speak to Father 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.
