Unless the_Lord



We are GRaCe PoWeReD and Growing!

We would like to invite you to join us on a wonderful journey--a journey of faith that will transform your life by deepening your relationship with God. At Messiah, we like to say that we are "GRaCe PoWeReD." This simple mission statement guides all that we do here at Messiah. Each consonant is a gentle reminder that we become GRaCe PoWeReD by Growing, Relating, Contributing, Praying, Worshiping, Reading Scripture and Discipling with a Christ-centered faith to serve our church, community and world. In other words, we Grow in our faith by being in Christ-centered Relationships; by Contributing (or sharing) our time, talents and gifts; by Praying; Worshiping and Reading Scripture on a regular basis; and by Discipling (or sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with others).

Lent Begins on Ash Wednesday, March 5th


  A traditional Ash Wednesday Worship at 7 p.m.(complete with imposition

  of the Ashes) will kick off our Lenten journey. Each Wednesday night

  through Lent we will hear from Lauren Winner (via DVD presentation).

  Lauren Winner grew up Jewish and converted to Christianity as an adult.

  In her book Mudhouse Sabbath, Ms. Winner shares how she has

  incorporated and found meaning in some of the spiritual practices with

  which grew up. On Sunday mornings, those who are interested are

  invited to gather during the Education Hour to talk about the different

  spiritual practices and how we might incorporate them into our own lives.


Volunteer at the Food Pantry

Through the years, Messiah has been a great supporter of the Hamilton County Food Pantry. 3 of our members presently serve on the Food Pantry Board and, we would like to offer other members of Messiah the opportunity to volunteer at the Food Pantry. Jobs include sorting donations, stocking shelves, preparing food orders, cleaning, or other tasks as needed.


The following dates and times are when one of our Messiah members is scheduled to work and they would love to have one or two others join them at the Pantry. If interested, look for the sheet in the narthex or contact the church office.

Mark Sunday, April 6th at 10:15 a.m. on your calendars (Sunday School will be at 9 a.m.)and plan now to attend the dedication of our new building additions. After the Dedication Worship, there will be a short ribbon cutting ceremony followed by a Potluck Dinner (meat will be provided, but everyone is asked to bring a dish or two to share). Several of our Mission Builders will be with us as well as Pastor Steve Meysing, Assistant to the Bishop for the Nebraska Synod and Pastor Al Duminy (who was pastor during the first building phase). It looks to be a fun and inspiring morning. We'd love to have you join us.
