Construction UPDATE on 84th

It’s the season of construction, and we remain SUMMER STRONG! We are grateful to Officer Bill Koepke directing traffic and managing the task each Sunday between services.

We have a few updates to share to assist as you prepare to travel to Messiah for worship.

  • Please follow the directions Officer Bill gives to you as he monitors traffic patterns and determines the safest approach to entering and exiting Messiah. When traveling from the south, you may be signaled to drive past our entrance and make a U-turn if traffic is heavy.
  • Anticipate there will be delays, so please allow yourself plenty of time, drive cautiously, and exercise patience.

We will continue to provide construction updates as they become available. Should you need assistance or have questions, we are here to help. Please contact the church office at 402.489.3024. 

Messiah Ministries & Partnerships

Service Opportunity with Rapid Response | July 13 & 20

Rapid Response Lincoln had a productive day in North Omaha on June 29, cutting up damaged trees and downed branches from the June 25 windstorm. We are planning to return to King Lake on two consecutive Saturdays, July 13 and 20, to continue making repairs to homes from 2019 flooding. We will again leave from Messiah’s parking lot at 7:00am and return by 5:00pm on each of those days. We would once again hope to use a church van so no one has to drive up alone. Lunch will be provided. A headcount is needed for travel and food preparations. To join this service opportunity or to learn more information, please contact Kevin Van Nostrand (call or text) at 402.499.3449.

Blood Pressure Screening | July 14

The Health Ministries team provides blood pressure screenings the 2nd Sunday of the month. Please stop by the Yellow Room near the Café on July 14 from 9:00am-9:30am to meet with the team and have your blood pressure taken. To learn more about this ministry, go to: Health Ministries or contact the church office at 402.489.3024.

Home in a Box Needs

We are fortunate to have a number of ministries who show and share God’s love to many. Home in a Box is one of them, providing basic household items for families who are transitioning from homelessness to a home or apartment. To support those in transition, Home in a Box is in need of the following donations:

  • Twin comforters
  • Full/regular size comforters and sheet sets
  • Stove top cookware
  • Laundry baskets
  • Toasters
  • Fans
  • Chest of drawers
  • Love seats without hide-a-beds or recliners
  • Smaller kitchen tables
  • Kitchen chairs

Items can be dropped off at the church office. For more information about this ministry, go to: Home in a Box or contact the church office at 402.489.3024.
