stations of the cross

We invite you to walk the Stations of the Cross as a Lenten personal devotion. There will be a simple display of the Stations of the Cross in Messiah’s sanctuary and a quiet space for meditation and prayer. Stations of the Cross will be available Fridays during Lent from 12 - 1 PM. 

Worship Arts Training

Worship Arts Training will be held Saturday March 25th from 9 AM to 11:30 AM. All of our lectors, intercessors, altar guild, and eucharistic ministers should plan on attending. This training is for new and experienced ministry team members. We need more volunteers to make worship happen, so if you've never been involved in these ministries, please show up and talk to us about trying out a new ministry.

Blessing In A Backpack donations

"Blessing In A Backpack" returns to Messiah this Lent! Messiah children will decorate and fill bags with healthy snack items to be distributed to Urban Academy students before Spring Break. Here's what you can do: Purchase and deliver a variety of healthy snack items to Messiah starting February 22 (Ash Wednesday) and continuing through to Sunday, March 26th. 

messiah's string group

The Messiah String Group, an informal play-along group, will meet after the 2nd worship service on Sunday March 26th at 12:15 PM. We will spend an hour playing a selection of easy songs. Printed lyrics and chords will be provided. Bring a music stand if you have one. It is hoped that this could be a continuing group, meeting regularly to sing and play together. Everyone is welcome to play a stringed instrument or just sing along.
