Interested in becoming a member of Messiah Lutheran Church? Anyone desiring membership, regardless of previous church affiliation, is required to attend the Discovery Class (Part I) and the Welcome to Messiah class (Part II). Contact the church office if you'd like to register for an upcoming class. Please provide your names, contact information, and, if child care is required, the first names and ages of your children.

The Discovery Class (Part I) is a series providing a deeper understanding of the Christian Faith. The class is useful both as a basic introduction to Christianity and as a terrific review of fundamentals Lutheran doctrine. Each class session offers instruction from the Word of God, excellent opportunities to make new friends in Christ, and a great chance to find out more about our ministry together at Messiah.

In addition to the Discovery Class, those desiring membership are asked to participate in a helpful 90-minute session called Welcome to Messiah (Part II). The session is designed to provide all of the information necessary to make the decision whether or not to join our church. The class covers the following topics:

  • A history of Messiah as a congregation and how God continues to work in this congregation;
  • An introduction to our staff and their areas of responsibility;
  • A tour of Messiah's facilities;
  • Benefits a member can expect from this congregation;
  • Expectations Messiah has of its members;
  • An introduction to Messiah's programs and ministries;
  • Our vision and goals as a congregation; and
  • An opportunity for questions and feedback.

Everyone desiring to join Messiah is asked to attend the Membership at Messsiah classes (Part I and Part II) before joining or transferring your membership from another church. 

May God continue to bless us as we grow in Christ! If you would like additional information please contact Pastor Bob.
