Welcome to Messiah Lutheran Church

Messiah Lutheran is a church that shares a living, daring, confidence in God's grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person -- questions, complexities and all. Join us as we do God's work in Christ's name, for the life of the world.

We are a member church of the
Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). The ELCA is made up of more than 10,000 congregations across the United States, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

The Book of Forgiveness Adult Discussion Group

Pastor Tyler leads an adult discussion on Sunday mornings, from 8:45 am to 9:30 am for ten weeks based on a book written by Nobel Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who has witnessed some of the worst crimes people can inflict on each other under the apartheid system of South Africa. He and his daughter Mpho Tutu, an Anglican priest, have written about their experiences with forgiveness and reconciliation. Some of the topics are “Why Forgive?,” “Naming the Hurt,” and “Renewing or Releasing the Relationship.”

We support the Children's World Relief Fund every 3rd Sunday by passing around a bowl to collect loose change (and bills too). Just two cents will provide a dose of vitamin A to prevent blindness among children in very poor countries. Every penny counts!
