Welcome to Messiah Lutheran Church
As Jesus told Peter and his brother, tending their fishing trade along the shores of the Sea of Galilee, to "Come, follow me, and I will make you fishers of men ", (Matthew 4:18-20), we here at Messiah Lutheran Church are also the Lord's "fishers".
We open our arms and hearts to all who want to learn and be part of those who live in the "light" of God's love, forgiveness and promise of eternal life.
As a fisherman, fishing to feed himself and his family, also find peace and the wonders of God's day and creations, we, and you, will find peace walking inGod's light and bringing that light to others. Come and be a fisher for God along with us at Messiah. Feed yourself and help us feed the hungry sitting along the shore needing to be fed; needing to be "nourished" with the food of life and needing to find the peace that only God's food and promise of forgiveness and everlasting life can give.
With the resurrection of His son Jesus Christ, God has given us a glimpse of the glory and beauty to come when we will be renewed into a glorious relationship with God, our Heavenly Father. God also shows us each year a renewal of life here on Earth. Just when Winter furies seem to never end, out comes the sun, warmth and beauteous nature popping out all around.
With the warmth, sunshine, sights and sounds of life renewing itself, our hearts and mind fill with thoughts of prospects, hopes and things to come.
Let us always honor God's love, blessings, strength and guidance given us each day. We need only look and listen with open hearts letting His majesty shine in and through us. Let us then help others do the same.
