What to Expect on a Sunday Morning


We are one big family at Messiah! 

Messiah is a church that stays true to God’s unchanging Word, 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.



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


Ministry Stories

The Angel Tree Wrap-up

In 2019, our Angel Tree ministry helped Messiah and Everett school families here in Lincoln, ten families from Kings Lake whose homes were ravaged by flooding, and children and sponsors of His Little Feet International Children’s choir.

A King Lake parent said, Our Christmas was nothing short of miraculous. Thank you to all at Messiah for making that possible.

We also received this in a note: Thank you so much for the gifts this Christmas season. The joy our children had opening these generous gifts is deeply appreciated. A heartfelt thank you for all the Messiah congregation.

One of the sponsors from His Little Feet remarked that nothing like this had ever been done for the group.

In all, the number of gifts you gave totaled over 250. While the $25 per gift remains the norm, many go over and above which results in the equivalent of approximately $7700!
We also used the tree to collect hats, mittens and scarves in January. The picture above is of the Everett Elementary Principal showing their appreciation when we dropped off 167 Hats, 148 pair of mittens and gloves and 49 scarves to them. 

Cris Gittins and I have been blessed and humbled by the overwhelming generosity of our Messiah family. We are so grateful for the many prayers that have helped this ministry share the light and love of Jesus—especially those who have never experienced it.

Just as the Lord guided and prepared us to step into this ministry, we have made the decision to step down as coordinators. Our prayer is for those who might consider leading this ministry, that you would listen to what God’s plan is for you. Of course contact Cris or myself with any questions!

Thank you for trusting us, working with us and praying for this amazing ministry. We look forward to seeing how Angel Tree will continue to serve families in need, and at the same time are excited to see out where God next guides each of us.

In Christ,
Helen Kampfe
Cris Gittins

National Lutheran Schools Week

When their son was ready for pre school, God led a Lincoln family to Messiah. During that first year, the family quickly grew to love everything about Messiah. When it was time to choose a school for kindergarten, Messiah became the easy choice. As the years have passed, they’ve grown closer to both the school and church staff. They just completed our latest “Welcome to Messiah” class and feel as though they’ve finally settled in to their new “home”.


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!
