Your Messiah Lutheran Church Properties Board is looking for ADVISORS and Board members.  Do you have interest or experience in Plumbing?  Are you excited by Gutters?  Do you enjoy Electrical and Lighting issues?  Perhaps Heating and Cooling is your passion?  Please consider serving as an ADVISOR for the Properties Board.  An ADVISOR does not necessarily complete the work (although that would be great!) but can be a source of information on what work needs to be done and how best to accomplish the work properly and in a timely and cost-effective manner.  If you are interested please see Susan Wollman or email


The table below lists some small projects that may be suitable for a family or one or two individuals to complete.  Please let Susan know if you are planning one of these projects and if you need any materials to complete the project.

Handrail Project is complete!

The new handrails were successfully installed on 5/29!  These handrails are slightly smaller in size for a better grip and start one step higher for safety and ease of installation.  This project is currently funded by an internal transfer of funds that is to be repaid as congregational giving allows.  If you would like to contribute to this project, please indicate on your envelope that it is for the Properties/Handrail project.  The overall cost of this project was $4316.



Renovation of the Messiah Lutheran Church Sign  

A contractor has been selected and we have made the initial deposit to secure our contract.  The entire process (from final design to manufacture and installation) may take up to 8 weeks.  We are looking at completing this project in June/July 2018.  Thank you to all who have contributed to this project.  There will be some minor landscaping needed near the sign to make it more visible and attractive.  Are you interested?
