Messiah Lutheran Church is a community of Lutheran Christians gathered around Christ; washed by Him in baptism, listening to Him in His Word, served by Him in His Body and Blood, living with Him by faith expressing itself in love and service to others.

We are saved for a purpose: not only to fill our own lives with peace, but to share that peace with others.  Join us as we pray for those who do not yet know the love of God shown in Jesus.  Each day there will be a new people group displayed here for you to remember in your daily prayers.  Join with us in praying the blessing of the Holy Spirit to spread the news and to call workers into the presence of these people

We are Christ Centered, Mission Minded and Family Strong.

Letter to Messiah Members from the Board

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” ~ Isaiah 41:10

The Messiah Board met to review the current COVID-19 public safety recommendations and decided to follow current Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) guidelines unless local government guidelines become more restrictive. For the safety and well-being of our congregation and the public, the following changes have been implemented at least through April 1, 2020.

Sunday Worship: All in-person services have been cancelled, but Pastor, Ben and volunteers are working to develop online services and resources for young and old to keep us connected, uplifted, and reassured of God’s ever-presence and care. You can go to messiah.lutheran.hays on YouTube to find our Sunday Worship services. Every other Sunday is a Morning Song Service, and the other Sunday's are the Regular First Service following DS1.

Education/Midweek: The Midweek program and all onsite Bible study and fellowship group meetings are cancelled. Although this is disappointing to all, particularly for the Midweek program, we realized there were only four meeting dates left and most of the kids already have their memory work done. We encourage you to meet as a family for daily devotions and Bible study. What a great way to spend time during this confinement and teach our children where to look for comfort and encouragement and how to grow in their faith.

Funerals/Weddings/Baptisms: We will allow these special services within the KDHE guidelines at the time.

Church Business Meetings: All regular business/committee meetings will be held remotely using a web-conferencing services.

Church Office: For the safety of the congregation and staff members, the church offices will be closed to all except those who have essential church business (invoice processing, mailings, etc.). If you need assistance, please call the staff directly rather than visiting in person for your safety and theirs. If there is no one available to answer the phone during regular office hours, the recording will direct the caller with a different phone number to call.

Church Office – 785-625-2057
Pastor Mallardi – 785-639-2936
DCE Ben – 785-639-2933

Sanctuary: Members are allowed to visit the sanctuary for prayer and meditation during this time. There will be hand sanitizer placed at the doors and we ask that you practice social distancing if there are others in the sanctuary.

Communion: Pastor and Parish Life will meet to determine options for communion and will communicate that soon.

Stewardship: Please continue to remember your tithes and offerings. Although we aren’t meeting at the church, expenses continue for staff salaries, missions, building and other expenses. We encourage you to use your online banking services or mail your check to: 2000 Main St., Hays, KS 67601. We are investigating other online giving services and will forward that information as soon as it is available.

Member support: We are looking at ways to support our members and have a plan in place to assist many of our seniors and others in need. Please let us know if you or someone you know is in need. We are called to be Jesus’ hands and feet at all times, but even more so in times of hardship and trial. Let us be that light and beacon of hope to others.

Cancellation of Church Services and ALL Activities

Due to all the current mandates, and the things going on in this world, the Messiah Board of Directors, have made the decision to Cancel ALL CHURCH SERVICES, and ACTIVITIES from now through April 19.   The Board will set down again on 
April 14th and see where we are in these current times.

This does include - ANYONE who had any of our facilites for use of any event during that time period on the calendar have now been cancelled as well.

Stay Home, Stay Healthy, Pray

Prayer Chain

Christians, who have a gift to pray for others, agree to take telephone calls for prayer requests to pray and pass the request on to the person below them on the list, believing that God wants us to pray to Him and when everyone is praying simultaneously for the same requests, there is tremendous power!  To start the prayer chain please submit your prayer request located on the left.
