Dutchess Outreach Coat Drive & Give-Away Each year Dutchess Outreach distributes thousands of coats to our neighbors in need throughout Dutchess County. We are pleased that our Food Pantry will once again be the local give-away site for this county-wide Coat Drive. Please consider contributing coats and jackets (men's, women's and children's) directly to us by Friday, November 15th. Coat donations may be brought to the Church of the Messiah, Parish Hall office, between 9:30 am - 1:00 pm Monday-Friday, or after church services Sunday. Kindly donate items that are clean and gently used. ***Coats will be distributed on Saturday, November 16th, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm***
We are initiating a monthly service for young people with autism here at Messiah in cooperation with the Anderson Center for Autism here in Rhinebeck. The first service will most probably be in January, after some planning and training sessions with our volunteers. More information will be available soon. In the meanwhile, if you have questions, please contact the parish office.
Save the Date! Highbridge Voices in concert This young people's choir based in the South Bronx has performed for the justices of the United States Supreme Court and in major venues throughout the New York area. These 50 young people will sing a variety of music from Africa, Europe, and the United States, including holiday selections. Admission is free thanks to the generosity of the Thompson Trust. The concert will be on Sunday, November 24th at 4pm, with a reception following.

OUR MISSION

At Messiah, our mission is to be a place where hard questions can be asked, the healing power of love experienced and the joy of worship celebrated. We believe that God is made known in the world through our relationships with each other . . . the true connections of real people in real life. We are on a journey that we invite you to join, knowing that we will be changed by your presence. We welcome that chance to know you and to love you. And together to live Jesus’ commandment to not be afraid.
