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).

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.
