...and the greatest of these is love

You are welcome here. I hope I get the chance to meet you in person soon. Have a blessed day.

There have been attempts to phish for gift cards through texts purporting to be from Pastor Karl.  These are a scam.
They have been coming from 803-236-4015 but that could change.
Pastor Karl would never reach out this way and certainly not request gift cards for folks in this way.  Please do not respond to these attempts.

Our Vision


Messiah's Vision is to INVITE people to faith, to CARE for each other with love, to help one another GROW in faith, and to SHARE our gifts with others.


Our sermons are best experienced live and in person here in worship.  Please do come worship with us whenever you are so inclined.



We are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).
