Following the advice of our bishop and federal health protocols and in compliance with Governor DeWine's and state health officials directives, Messiah’s congregational council has concurred to cancel large group worship events here thru April 6th.
The next two Sunday liturgies,  March 22nd, March 29th & April 5th are cancelled. 

Wednesday Lenten soup supper liturgies for March 18th, March 25th, and 
April 1st are cancelled. 
More announcements will follow as to when Messiah will be open for prayer times that conform to federal guidelines. 
During this pandemic I appreciate perspectives from Psalms 40 and 41. (“Though we are afflicted, the Lord has plans for us; You are our help and savior, do not delay, O God.” 40:17)
Last Sunday we heard Jesus refer to himself as living water. He flows thru us, especially now. This crisis is our opportunity to ask God how we may creatively be living water that brings liveliness and sustenance to our neighbor. (Always keeping in mind only to go out when absolutely necessary and never being part of a group larger than ten people and maintaining social distance and constantly washing our hands!)
Peace is ours. We’ll get thru this,
Michael Meranda, pastor
