​​125th CELEBRATION FINALE: 
October 6, 2019 (1995-2019)


The 125th anniversary finale will be on October 6. The last talk about Messiah’s history will be at both services.

A time line showing many important events from Messiah’s history will be on the wall leading to the sanctuary. Each family will have the year they joined Messiah notated on the time line. A history room will have items from the archives for all to see where ​we started and how we have traveled to 2019. 

Excitement! History! Fun!

May 5, 2019 (1920-1944): A church history talk will begin the services. The service itself will be taken from the old RED hymnal, with hymns and an anthem and bulletin cover from that era. 

Messiah is 125 years young this year!

What a milestone! Messiah’s quasquicentennial birthday! That is 125 in math terms, we think. To commemorate this time in our history, the CXXV committee has put together a year of celebration, divided into 25-year segments!
