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

Orphan Grain Train Partnership

A group from Messiah attended the Orphan Grain Train Convention in Norfolk, Nebraska September 13-15. Ask these individuals how you can serve!

OGT was organized in April 1992 and has 27 regional branches and collection centers in the US. They have responded to disasters in 37 states—and most recently here in Nebraska—after all the flooding in March and July. OGT also ships Mercy Meals and humanitarian aid to 69 countries. True fact—98.3% of all donations go towards OGT missions and only 1.7% goes to administrative/marketing costs.

Join us Oct 13 for Make a Difference Sunday and help feed the poor by making Mercy Meals. Our goal this year is to package 55,000 meals in one day!

Men’s Steak Night

From John Radway
 
Five of my guests at Steak Night this year have come for many years in a row. I’m blessed to meet with most of them in a mentoring relationship. Two of the men and I had previously discussed a book we could go through. At Steak Night they were moved to pick out a couple of books that were available so we can continue to grow in our roles as mentors and dads. God is blessing many men through the ministries of Messiah.

Days for Girls Kits Change Women’s Lives

Days for Girls International is a nonprofit that has helped a million women and girls in over 125 countries. We learned about Days for Girls prior to a Messiah mission trip to Tanzania last year, and completed training in order to teach women and girls about their menstrual cycle and hygiene, and distribute washable, reusable Days for Girls feminine hygiene kits.

We taught our first class with the Massai tribe women under an acacia tree, and two other classes in the secondary schools in the Mgundai village. When we returned from Africa, Wendy Rich and I felt the Holy Spirit start a fire in our hearts. We began working with Ann, who leads a Days for Girls group in Omaha, to learn the process of creating and sewing kits.

These kits include a beautiful drawstring cloth bag, a zip-lock bag, soap, 2 pairs of underwear, 2 shields, 8 trifold pads, a menstrual diary, and a washcloth. Days for Girls kits last 3-5 years. With 1 1/3 yards of fabric, a kit will give back to a girl 180 days over 3 years: days in school, days of income, days of dignity and days of living. 

We welcome all volunteers even if you don’t sew. Contact Kathy Carter for more info 402.416.8953.
