What is the Lay Leadership Board? We usually refer to the Lay Leadership Board as the LLB. The LLB is a group of 12 congregation members who serve 3-year terms, voted into office during an annual congregational vote.
What Does the Board Do? They meet monthly to develop the Mission, Vision and Core Values of Messiah; they assist in setting policies and developing our strategic plan; and they monitor the strategies, goals, and results of the Pastors and Staff.

With the blessing of a much larger building come plenty of new challenges to tackle. We are now asking that every visitor to our building during school hours wear a visitor tag. It doesn't matter if you're coming to Messiah for the first time, or you've been a part of Messiah for your whole life.
We're training our school children to watch for those tags, so to help them feel safe and secure, we ask everyone to not only wear a visitor tag, but to also sign in at the Main Office when coming into the building during school hours.
By signing in, you're providing a record of when you entered and left the building. During our battle with COVID-19, this is great way to help us contact people who may have been in the building if we later find out that someone testing positive was at Messiah.
Please help us by always signing in at the Main Office and grabbing a visitor tag when you come into our building during school hours.
Homeless Care Kits Thanks for your continued support of our Homeless Care Kit ministry! We continue to collect hygiene items, socks, gloves, washcloths, and single serving snacks to replenish our supply. Kits are available to take with you and have handy to give to someone in need.
