At Messiah, we don't feel we have to serve. We get to serve! In these busy lives of ours, are we willing to be inconvenienced to serve God? We serve God by serving others and joyfully doing so. There are many opportunities for each and every one of us to share our gifts with our church family and community.

We really do need everyone's help in making the ministries that we offer successful as we seek to answer God's call to love. Our programs are here for a reason. From assisting with making our Sunday worship experiences warm and welcoming, to teaching our children and youth the power of having Christ in our lives, to maintaining our church home, to serving others through many mission outreach opportunities, there is truly something for everyone. Everyone needs a ministry...what is yours? Please contact us for more information about the many opportunities for ministry at Messiah.
