Due to COVID-19 and the recommendation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and Governor Walz, Messiah has decided to suspend in-person Sunday worship until further notice.
We make this decision prayerfully and will instead be mailing weekly letters and posting our taped worship services on this website. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and hope to resume in-person Sunday worship here at Messiah soon.
Nurturing Beloved Community Since 1908
Messiah Lutheran Church has deep roots in the West Phillips Neighborhood of South Minneapolis. We were originally founded in 1908 with the goal of providing an English-language service for new Swedish immigrants in Minnesota, who wanted their children to learn about Jesus and practice English at the same time. In 2008, Messiah moved from its historic location and into a partnership with Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota in the Center for Changing Lives. Messiah is the spiritual component in the Center for Changing Lives--a multi-faceted ministry center in the heart of the neighborhood.
We believe “Our God is able, all the time Our God is able.”
There are many opportunities and options for volunteering with Messiah - something for everyone. Come and be with us as often as you like for this mutually enriching experience of community-building. Once here, we know you will want to come back again and again.
