The Christian life is an active one, not a passive pursuit. Worship, fellowship and stewardship of the talents God has given us are all essential to our own individual spiritual growth and to the growth of our church.Each of us has a gift we can offer. As Christians, we are called to use those gifts to the glory of God.

At Messiah, we strive to provide fellowship opportunities for individuals within the church community. Each activity is meant to help its participants grow together in faith and belonging. From Bible studies to youth activities, choirs to our Supper Club, members are sure to find activities that suit their own personality, strengths and preferences.
