Here at Messiah Church there are so very many dedicated volunteers that make this church truly a home for all people. Along with these wonderful volunteers there are several part-time and half-time folks who make the day to day operations of the church run smoothly. Feel free to connect with any of our staff via their emails, the office email, or by calling the parish office (608) 222-3833. Our voice mail system will allow you to leave messages for many of our staff.
