• Our services are family friendly. The 8:30 and 11am services are more traditional, and the 9:45am Contemporary service is more casual in music, tone and attire.
• We celebrate and praise God through our robust and uplifting Music Ministry. The type of music depends on which service you attend. We are blessed with many vocalists and musicians who delight us with their gifted performances. Watch for special musical events, such as concerts, renaissance festival, cantatas and more.
• We support our children and teens through robust youth ministries that keep them engaged in worship, service and bonding experiences that are both fun and meaningful.
• Our accredited Preschool serves children ages 2 – 4 years of age and provides a well-rounded, quality early development education that prepares our students for great success in kindergarten and beyond. We are a VPK provider.

Messiah Lutheran Church and Preschool is associated with the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS). To be Lutheran simply means that we:
● Accept all of scripture as truth.
● Can only be in relationship with God, and be saved by him, through faith alone, not through anything we do to earn his love.
● Receive God’s incredible love by his grace. He gives it freely to us, regardless of how many times we have broken that relationship by sinning against him. Jesus paid for your sin and gives you new life because he is full of grace for you.
