About This Sunday

Worship at Messiah During the Corona Virus Pandemic


There will be no on-site worship services until the “shelter at home” mandate is lifted.

We are getting things going for online worship through YouTube.  

The service for last Sunday (March 22) can be viewed by clicking on this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INL03VrERls

We will be attempting to do live-streaming on coming Sundays and hope to have our YouTube channel (Messiah Lutheran Church, Port Byron) available for you to go to for future online worship services.  

We will keep you posted here on the website about access to our online services.
