You Are Welcome Here

…whether you are married or single,
for we will partner with you;
…whether you are a parent or a child of one,
for we will be family together with you;
…whether you know what you believe,
or have no idea what you believe,
for we are one with you in pursuit of
a deeper knowledge of God;
…whether you are from this place or far away,
for we were all strangers once ourselves.

Whatever your nationality, color, sexual orientation, gender identity, family situation, physical or mental state, economic status or religious background we pray that you will find here a place to grow in the love of Christ; love that bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things; knowing that God’s love is bigger than anything we can ask or imagine.


Messiah Lutheran is a Reconciling in Christ congregation.
