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.

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!
