Welcome to Messiah! If you attend Messiah regularly and have not yet participated in a Welcome to Messiah class, please consider it. Pastor Erhardt typically teaches the four week class on Sundays at 9:00 a.m. each January/February. The class covers how Lutherans understand what it means to be Christian, how we worship, opportunities to serve, congregational organization and governance, and Q & A. All are welcome. The class is essential for anyone wishing to become a member of the congregation. Attending the class will not oblige you to become a member. If you have questions and/or plan to attend, please inform Pastor Erhardt (firstname.lastname@example.org).
