Getting Involved

As important as Sunday Worship is, our life together is filled with many opportunities to serve others and to experience community. From the Food Pantry, our Sunday Morning education forum, to the Third Thursday Luncheon program, the Messiah Community is busy and engaged. See our Calendar of Events below or click here to view a full list of our Programs.

The Capital Campaign

The Parish is currently in the process of raising a significant amount of money to address the long-standing issues of water infiltration through our roof and walls and the resulting damage to the building. In addition to the nearly $2 million pledged by members of the congregation, we are looking to grants and community businesses and institutions to help us in this important work. If you’d like to be part of this historic capital campaign, please email the Parish Office, or talk to Fr. Richard.
