Messiah doesn't get involved in the community just for the sake of getting involved because that would be pointless. Messiah doesn't get involved in the community just to provide something for church members to do, or to give our members a way to feel better about themselves. Messiah is involved in the community to better represent Jesus, and to make His name known.
In addition to those listed we are always on the lookout for ways to reach out to our community and share God's love.
