Welcome Visitors!
We are glad to have you join us in worshiping Christ together today. Please use the QR code on the back of the bulletin to leave your contact info or get more information. We invite you to wear a name tag (found on the back ledge or in the Fellowship Registers) so we can better connect with you during our Fellowship/Coffee time following the service. Ready for a more permanent, printed name tag? Please contact the office.

Annual District Coffees
District IV – (Jomarron-Oosterheert) will meet on May 16. 2nd Annual District Coffees: One of the ways Messiah offers spiritual care to our members is by assigning families to districts (alphabetically) and having a Pastoral Elder and Deacon pair connect more closely with those families. Districts will be invited to attend a time of fellowship, coffee, and special treats in the Church Basement by the Old Kitchen following the morning service. Look for your District’s date in the bulletin. 

Offerings
NOTE: There will be baskets in the narthex for your offerings; we will not be passing the basket during the services. You can bring your offerings for the General Fund, Faith Promise, CEF, Benevolence and BGS any time.
