VISITORS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME to worship at Messiah. If you are seeking a church home, please speak to the pastor. Our fellowship in Jesus Christ is open and extended to all persons who confess His Lordship over all life. Thank you for worshiping with us. We invite you to return. Visitors are invited to commune with us if they are baptized and, if with us in our faith, they trust Jesus’ promise of the presence of the Body and Blood of Christ.
In hospitality and attempting to meet the needs of individuals, Messiah now offers gluten free communion hosts!
