Coronavirus Updates

Please check this page for updates regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19).  We will post the most updated information here.

Jesus is Lord of the Church and we are called to be His disciples. This value guides us as we face the difficult challenge of responding to the coronavirus (COVID-19),

These are uncertain times in which can bring us great anxiety. What do we do in such times? We seek refuge in the Lord! He is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in times of trouble. (Psalm 46:1) No matter who you are, first and foremost, seek Jesus who will give you His peace that passes understanding.

We will evaluate other gatherings for the future as new information becomes available so please continue to follow us at and check out for the most updated information. You can also subscribe here for email updates.

We are Here for You and One Another!

In times like these many are afraid and anxious. What a blessing to have a God who comes to us to cast out that fear. On Sunday mornings, as we read the book of 1 Peter together, we are reminded time and time again about God’s faithfulness to us in tough times. In 1 Peter 1:4, we are reminded that God causes us to be born again to a living hope that is “imperishable, undefiled and unfading.” Peter continues that we are to “keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace” (1 Peter 4:8b-10)

Jesus will see you through these tough times! I encourage you to keep loving one another. Look for tangible ways to serve. Perhaps it’s bringing groceries to someone who is more at risk in our community. Perhaps, it’s sending our local officials encouraging cards and prayers. Be creative. Let the Spirit work in you. Stay tuned for unique ministry opportunities God is giving us at Messiah.

If you have needs or concerns, or find yourself ill, please reach out to us. Our staff continue to be available for spiritual guidance and help with physical/tangible needs. You can call the church office at 813.961.2182  or email our office administrator at

But in all of this, know that Jesus is with you and nothing can separate you from His love, not even fears or viruses!
