Confirmation will be held at Messiah on Sunday, June 11, at 10 a.m. The Rt. Rev. Brian Prior, bishop of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota, will preside.
In recent years Messiah youth and adults wishing to be confirmed or received went to one of the cathedrals in Minnesota for this rite of passage. The last time confirmation was held at Messiah was 20 years ago. If you are interested in being confirmed or received (for those who have previously been confirmed in a liturgical church) please contact the church office at 651-698-2590.
As followers of the Prince of Peace, is there ever a time when war is just? Join Peter Williams, member of Messiah, as he draws on his experience as Judge Advocate and Associate General Counsel for the Minnesota National Guard for an engaging and challenging three weeks of discussion on warfare through the lens of Christianity. Sessions will examine 1) biblical perspective on war and those who wage it; 2) how Christians have wrestled with ethics and morality of warfare; 3) pacifism and how it interacts with Just War theory; and 4) Just War theory in practice: modern conflicts. Sundays, May 7, 14, and 21, at 10 a.m. in the Loft.
In June, Messiah will provide temporary emergency shelter for local children and their parents who are facing homelessness. As a volunteer you can make this ministry successful and help welcome our guests throughout the month.
You can sign up for evening or overnight hosting on the sign-up sheet in the gathering space or online. There are also set-up and support positions available.
