  • Gloria in Excelsis Deo! Christmas Concert



    Saturday, December 8th  at 7:00 p.m.

    Please come and bring friends to our “Gloria in Excelsis Deo” Concert featuring our choir in Beautiful Renaissance attire singing a variety of songs sure to inspire and entertain.

    The concert is presented by Messiah Music Ministry’s talented choir, bell choir and instrumentalists.

    After the concert all are invited to a delicious Wassail and dessert reception in the beautifully decorated ministry center (gym). Guests will share a toast of warm mulled cider and at the end of the evening we close with Silent Night. What a wonderful opportunity to invite an unchurched friend to hear the story of Christ’s birth in word and song.

    Pastor Guelzow will share a message of Christmas joy with us!

    The concert is free; donations to the music ministry scholarship fund are gratefully accepted during the free will offering.   

God Connects - A New Bible Study


GOD CONNECTS! A brief introduction of the Bible Study:

You are invited to prayerfully consider a new Bible Study being offered at Messiah starting Sunday, September 23rd, at 9:45 -10:45 and 11:00-12:00 in room 204 of the Ministry Center.

One of the most recognizable Bible verses in the world is John 3:16: 16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

What is far less familiar is what follows in John 3:17-18: 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved THROUGH HIM. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe [in him] is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. (emphasis added)

Thus God designs to connect the whole world with the saving grace of knowing and trusting in His only-begotten Son, Jesus. In this world it is becoming very unpopular to proclaim that Jesus is the only way to heaven. God Connects Bible Study begins with a look at “Why Jesus?” and “Why the Bible?” We will then explore the amazing depth of God’s love to connect us to Him through His Bride, the Church, through God’s gifts of Baptism and Holy Communion, and through a Christian life of worship and fellowship. Please join us!
