Lent and Easter 2021

Holy Week: Join us for a Holy Week Prayer Path outdoors at Messiah! Journey closer to the cross by walking to each of our Prayer Path stations.

Some things to remember before heading to the church: 

  • Please follow all safety protocols including wearing masks, social distancing, and only one household at each station at any given time. 
  • Bring a smartphone to listen to the audio while walking the Path. Headphones are optional. Don't have access to a smartphone? That's ok! The Prayer Path guide follows the same as the audio. Click on the button below to access the Station tracks. 
  • Once you get to the Path, find Station One and grab your supplies. Everything you need to walk the Path is at Station One. Please take one bag per person.
  • We want to hear from you! Send us your comments, concerns, reflections and prayers through the button below! 

Easter: Due to the early date for Easter and weather uncertainties, on Sunday, April 4th, Messiah will host a drive-in worship service at 10AM in the East half of the Ralston High School parking lot. So the Messiah staff and leadership can plan for the best possible day, please RSVP, here! 

 

A Congregation meeting will be held at the conclusion of the Easter worship. The agenda will be election of Ministry Council members, election of Synod Assembly Voting members, election of the Nominating Committee, and adoption of a 2021 Mission Plan.

Easter Sunrise Worship: 

6:30 am @ Ralston Middle School Ballfield

81st and Lakeview Sts.

Bring your chair/blanket, and wear your mask.

In case of inclement weather (rain or snow), the service will not be held.


Lenten Midweek: Our Midweek theme will be, “Walk Dusty.” Pastor Greg will introduce each week’s theme via a recorded, downloadable, devotion. A weekly Bible study will also be available. Members will have the option of doing the study individually, as a family, or in a small group meeting via Zoom. We encourage you to consider starting your own group and inviting friends and neighbors to join.
Staff will coordinate Zoom small groups so that everyone who wants to be a part of such a group will have the opportunity. You do not need to have internet access to join a zoom meeting. They can be joined by telephone. If you are new to Zoom and want some instructions,

These studies can occur anytime throughout the week. A new study will be made available each Wednesday. Hard copies of the Bible Study will be mailed to those without internet access.
