Parking Lot Ministry 

Messiah is located across the street from two Ralston schools. Each day, volunteers go out to serve a snack and a smile to the parents, students, and siblings waiting in our North Parking Lot. This ministry has been key in helping us building trusting relationships with those in the community.
