Messiah Mission Fest in the News

Laughter resonated across a grassy field as a group of teens tossed around a football during the Messiah Lutheran Mission Fest on October 10, 2015. Youth leader Joshua de Steiguer chased down one of them playfully. His friend narrowly escaped capture, leaving Joshua breathlessly gasping, “I’m not a runner!”

The Messiah Lutheran Mission Fest, which featured twinkling Christmas lights and a hearty brisket meal, supports the Parker County Crossroads Group. This group is centered on helping troubled teens and giving them a pillar of support.

Messiah is hosting a new worship service. The Church of the Damascus Road, our NT-NL prison ministry, conducts weekly worship with Holy Communion at Messiah on Sunday evenings at 5:00 p.m. All are invited.

These services have a special focus for those who are recovering from addictions of all kinds. The music is contemporary and praise oriented. The dress code is … well there isn’t a dress code.  Check it out!

Fajitas for lunch Sunday

Fajitas! For our final Summer Sandwich Love of 2015, Messiah will enjoy a fajita lunch for everyone after the 10:30 service on Sunday, Aug. 23.  What a treat.

It’s good food and fellowship and fun… to make a couple of important points:

1. We want to recognize and thank all those who volunteered in the “Healthy Kids” Summer Lunch Program and;

2. School is starting soon so this is a back-to-school celebration for all our teachers, students, and parents.

Join our Messiah friends for fajita lunch on Sunday!


For more than a year we have been providing funding for a pig project in a partnership with St. Peter Lutheran Church and School in Sierra Leone. We are close to the day of this project bearing fruit for the church and community.

To celebrate this accomplishment we will have a Sierra Leone style Service of Thanksgiving on June 28 at 10:30 with Pastor Christopher Yanker and friends from the Sierra Leone community leading our worship. Also, Pastor Yanker has agreed to provide us all with a Sierra Leone style noon meal.

A Christian community of acceptance, hope and welcome
