Weekly Lenten Services
Each year during the Season of Lent we have gathered as a family of faith to eat together in simple soup suppers and pray. This year we will not be able to gather in-person for these events and still we want to honor our Lenten journey. The East Side Pastor’s Conference of the ELCA has come together to offer devotions each Wednesday during Lent at 7:00 PM. These devotions will be streamed on www.messiahchurch.com (Faith Life page – Worship & Music) as well has Messiah’s Facebook page and the East Side Conference page https://www.facebook.com/EastMadisonELCA. May your Lenten Season bring an abundance of blessings.
How grateful I am to be the pastor of Messiah Lutheran Church! I think you will find our parish community to be alive with the Spirit of Christ - a Spirit that is shown most profoundly in prayer, service and joy. In the end, joy is the surest sign of one who follows Jesus.
I hope you feel at home here at Messiah. There are so many ways to get involved and to reach out to those who are most in need. It is my belief that when we reach out in service we will make a difference in the world, and we will find our deepest joy. - - Pastor Jeff, Melissa, Joey, Ben and Rachel (and Sprecher our dog!)
