Welcome to Messiah Lutheran Church

My name is Karl Hester and I started serving as pastor here on March 1.

I have so enjoyed getting to know the loving people who are a part of this vital community of faith. I hope you will come and get to know this community as well.

We worship on Sundays at 9:30 am and have communion service. You are invited to come and fully participate.

Since we are the church season of Lent we also have a weekly soup Supper at 6:00 pm (through April 10) which is followed by Holden Evening Vespers at 7:00. Stop by, enjoy a meal and some conversation. Then take time to worship together.

As I am new to the community, I would love to make connections outside of the church as well. If you would like to meet with me somewhere to talk about life, God or whatever else please feel free to contact me.

My e-mail at the church is pastormessiahnh@gmail.com.
My cell phone is  503-953-5164.

Have a blessed day!

At Messiah…
People grow in Christ.
Relationships are built and strengthened.
God’s word is proclaimed in word and deed.
God’s love is received and shared
