What to Expect on a Sunday morning

 

We’re one big family at Messiah!

 
Messiah is a church that stays true to God’s unchanging Word, but we try to do it in a setting that is genuine and real.  Come as you are to worship and you’ll fit right in.  You’ll see some men wearing jackets and ladies in dresses, while others are in casual tops with jeans or shorts.  Don’t be surprised to find people hanging around for quite a while before and after our services, as we love to laugh, smile and catch up on life’s happenings on Sunday mornings.
 
 

 

FORWARD IN FAITH

In 2020, Messiah will open it’s largest ever expansion!  
We are excited to share what God is doing at Messiah with you.
 

Ministry Stories

Blessing our Students with a Thrivent Action Grant

Garlyn Beeman (Messiah school Teacher’s Aide) and Heather Haniszewski, Messiah’s school Admissions Coordinator, recently notified the Health Ministry Team of the need for a first aid kit on the playground. Diane Mohrhoff, a Messiah member and Thrivent member, wrote a Thrivent Action Grant with the help of Kathy Carter.

With Thrivent grant funds, they purchased a backpack and filled it with first aid supplies, gloves, Kleenex, hand sanitizer, etc.

They were also able to buy underwear for students who may have accidents, as well as underwear for the Mustard Seeds/Days for Girls feminine hygiene kits.

Thank you, Diane and Thrivent, for filling these needs for kiddos here at our school and around the world!

Serving God at any Age

This past week, a team of 14 volunteers from Messiah, served at Gleanings for the Hungry in California.  Mrs. Thimijan was able to get to know one of the regular volunteers at Gleanings.  Elmer (originally from Beatrice) is 92 years old, and he and his wife, Anne, spend a couple of mornings each week at Gleanings.  They help to tear plastic bags off of a large roll, and fill them with soup mix.  Anne, who is 93, married Elmer about 6 years ago, after they got to know each other at the assisted living home where they both live.  God can use anyone, at any time, to accomplish the work here on earth that He has set aside for us.

A focus on helping children

The Messiah Women in Mission quilt tying group has tied 100-140 quilts per year in recent years!  These quilts have been donated locally to Friendship Home, Cedars Home for Children, Madonna Rehab, Messiah’s Baby Dresser Project, the City Mission, and various nursing homes.
 
This year we are focusing on children’s quilts for Friendship Home as they have an astounding number of children coming thru their agency. The children often come into foster care with only what they are wearing, and receiving a warm blanket to keep can be a great comfort in difficult circumstances. 
 
There are always so many needs, so we will keep sewing and tying. Thanks to all who donate fabric, and also help sew and tie.
