Email?
Does the church office have your current email address? If we don’t have it or if it has recently changed, we would like to update things here in the office. You can send it to office.messiahcrc@gmail.com. You can also be added to our Friday email list to receive a weekly email which includes the coming Sunday’s bulletin, along with missionary newsletters, etc.

Office Hours
The Church Building is closed.  Please contact Fig with any office related questions.

Welcome Visitors!
We are glad to have you join us in worshiping Christ together today. 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.

Budge Approval
Voting to approve Messiah’s 2020/2021 Budget Normally Messiah CRC votes to approve its 2020/2021 budget at a congregational meeting. However, due to Covid-19, we will be voting either online or through mailed absentee ballots. If Messiah has your e-mail address, you have received an e-mail for online voting. If Messiah does not have your e-mail address, you will be mailed an absentee ballot. The deadline for Messiah to count your vote is June 8, 2020. Please give this opportunity prayerful consideration.

Re-Opening
Please keep the re-opening committee in your prayers.  

Offerings
Offerings during CV Shutdown: Please continue to send in your offerings through the mail or sign up for Breeze to give electronically. You may contact Fig for assistance with your Breeze account – fig.messiahcrc@gmail.com
