Welcome to Messiah!

The Northwest District of the LCMS is sparking the Gospel Movement among us, hoping it will catch fire here in this place.  The District servants are providing the Gospel DNA Toolkit.  This is a series of short videos and some discussion points delivered one per month for 6 months (off for December).  These describe the early LCMS church, what its people said, wrote and did.  And this is not simply the early LCMS pastors.  It is especially about lay-people who, propelled by the Holy Spirit, spoke, wrote and enacted the Gospel Movement which came to be called the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod.

I encourage you to come and listen, to open your heart and catch fire for Jesus who always sends His people out to baptize, teach and witness of Him ... to start new.  Amen.

In Christ,

Pastor Gilkey

Preschool News - October 2018

facebook Preschool is off to a good start. Plans are well underway for Oktoberfest on October 20, 2018 from 5:30 to 7:00 P.M. The students are going to the pumpkin patch on October 4. In addition, Pastor Gilkey is doing Chapels with each class every week. We are happy to have Kaelene Hewett as the new Teacher’s Assistant.
The Childcare is very busy with attendance at 30 or more each day. With the influx of children, the Childcare is recruiting for staff positions.
If you would like to help with Oktoberfest, please sign up on the list in the Narthex. Servers are needed as well as help with the Silent Auction. We also could use volunteers to help prepare the hot potato salad on Saturday before Oktoberfest.
