As wardens we would like to welcome you and hope that in addition to checking us out here, you will stop in for a live or Facebook live service. On Sundays we have an 8am service and a 10am service with music. We have vocal and bell choirs.
We are currently in transition. Our priest of 15 years has retired and we are in the process of looking for a new priest. This is an exciting time for our Messiah Family. It’s almost like planning a big party - getting everything in tip top shape for an important guest. And we know how to celebrate!
We have a thrift shop that provides a place for the community to pass on gently used items and for others to pick up a great bargain. We have the Senior Resource Center housed in our building where it provides minimal and no fee classes for seniors.
We have a social justice group which has begun joining with other local denominations. For the first time we jointly celebrated a public Juneteenth event and together are planning a joint public celebration for International Day of Peace.
Parishioners are active in EfM (Education for Ministry), a book club and Bible study. We are planning to restart our “Dinner with Friends” frequently know as Agape Meals with small groups. These dinners allow for sharing a simple meal which provides an opportunity to get to know one another on a different level. We also have coffee hour after our 10am Sunday service which is a great opportunity to catch up with fellow parishioners or get acquainted if you are new.
Some of our other planned activities are a “Line and Dine" dancing event in November and an Artisan Show with local artisans. In the first few months of the pandemic, we laughed our way through a Zoom mystery involving the disappearance of our administrative assistant. We had fun planting clues and using obvious props relating to certain parishioners to throw people off.
We offer Sunday School during our 10am service having children come in to be with their parents during communion. We also offer several special events for children throughout the year including Vacation Bible Camp, Gingerbread House construction and decoration, a Christmas Pageant, Pancake toss on Fat Tuesday and an Easter egg hunt with a visit from the Easter bunny.
The original section of our unique building was an old dairy barn and we have several spaces available for use for a small donation. If you are searching for a place of community which respects all people, their diverse gifts and this planet which our creator entrusted to us please join us for a service or event! We look forward to meeting you.
Feel free to peruse our website for links and descriptions of all the offerings mentioned above! Debbie & Dani
