Upcoming Events

Congregational Service Event

Since Christ is the Heart of Christmas and he transforms our hearts and empowers our hands and feet to serve Him by serving others, we will be serving our community on December 23rd.

Join us for ONE worship service at 8:30AM. Come dressed to work (closed toed shoes and clothing layers if you get cold easily) as we serve others in need. Bring a water bottle and a snack and plan to join us for the day.

Individuals and families with members of all ages are invited to join us. We have TWO potential locations you can serve.

Project 1: We will be serving at Metropolitan Ministries Pasco at 3214 US Highway 19N Holiday, FL 34691. We need 45 people at this site. Please sign up on the rolly bulletin board if you or your family would like to participate as we need to give this ministry a volunteer number ahead of time. They are also requesting that you make a commitment by logging in at https://metromin.volunteerhub.com/lp/ mlc/. We need a finalized commitment and head count by December 16th.

Project 2: We will be serving at the Graham at Gracepoint, a restricted income housing development. We will be putting on a Christmas party (lunch, games, project, music, and the presence of Christ through us) for the residents, many of whom do not have family in the area. We may also have an opportunity to distribute some of our Wednesday evening Advent project collections. All ages are welcome, our number is somewhat flexible but we would ideally like 5-35 people. Sign up on the rolly bulletin board at church. We need a finalized commitment and head count by December 16th.

Both groups will depart after worship around 9:50AM and work until 1:45/2PM. Carpooling/ caravaning, from Messiah is an option. Drive times will take about 45 minutes to an hour. We would return to Messiah no later than 3pm. Thanks for partnering with us as we live out lives of worship this Sunday morning by being the hands and feet of Jesus.

Can’t attend on the 23rd but want to help? We may have an opportunity for a few individuals to serve by making some cookies or treats for the Graham residents that could be brought to church earlier in the week.


Our Preschool

As a Christ-centered educational ministry of Messiah Lutheran Church, Messiah Preschool in partnership with families provides the building blocks for the spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, and social growth of its students with a developmentally appropriate curriculum that affirms the importance of play. We encourage the children to share their God-given gifts in service as witnesses to their love for Christ. 

Messiah Lutheran Church and Preschool exists to encourage people to follow Jesus and be a light of hope to the Tampa area. Our mission is to empower others to grow in faith, service and outreach, and we embrace opportunities to share our love of Christ with others so that they too can experience the joy and peace He brings. 


We'd love to meet you!
