Operation Christmas Child is a GO again this year!

These shoeboxes packed with hygiene items, clothing, school supplies, and toys — will go to countries where children have likely never received a gift of any kind. Along with the shoebox, they will hear the Gospel and be invited to participate in a 12-week discipleship program. Hundreds of thousands of children have become Christ-followers through the simple gift of a shoebox! As one Pastor said, “A child who knows Jesus is like a seed being planted in his or her family and community.”

We have boxes and instructions for packing them available in the Great Hall, 
available weekdays (during office hours), Wednesday nights, and Sunday mornings. Filled shoeboxes can be dropped off here at church, along with a $9 per box donation to cover shipping cost. All shoeboxes must be returned no later than Sunday, November 22. Thank you! Contact Bethany Werner or Lindy Karlin 402.429.6961 for more info.

Thank you to our Veterans!

The students and staff of Messiah thank all veterans for serving our country! Our thoughts and prayers are with you this upcoming Veterans Day.

Our school children have a special place in their hearts for our veterans. We are not able to invite you to come to our special assembly in person this year. However, we do invite you to watch online here at 8:45 on Nov. 11, or any time afterward. Our hope is that veterans will know and feel the love and respect our students have for those who have served our country to keep it safe for all.

We're gathering food donations to prepare Thanksgiving Baskets (meals) for families in need within our congregation and our community. You can donate a turkey, which we'll keep in the freezer until delivery. Other items you can donate are: potatoes, stuffing, canned vegetables, gravy, pumpkin pies, dinner rolls, etc. You can donate up to and including the morning of Sunday, November 22nd. We'll prepare the baskets that morning, and make deliveries after the 9:30 service. This is a great outreach to these families, and it is also a very rewarding experience for the deliverers too! All deliverers will be required to wear masks during the deliveries. If you'd like to deliver baskets, please contact Kevin & Sarah Kohlhof 402.540.8514.
