We seek to live in community with God and with one another. In doing so, we strive to develop strong community ties by living life together in a variety of ways. Often, when visiting those in need within our community, our pastor will find that other sisters and brothers from Messiah are visiting them as well, sending cards, providing meals and other support that is indicative of a community that cares for one another. We work at maintaining the kind of community that supports one another in the challenges of this life and also celebrates with one another in grace filled surprises that enter our lives.
Messiah hosts regular gathering events for all of our members whether that be a community Bar-b-que in the Rosen Garden just off of our main sanctuary, or potluck meals in our fellowship hall (Capel Hall), we love to get together to share life with one another. These events give us the opportunity to celebrate together when we experience the joys of life and to support one another through the challenges that life may offer at times. They are crucial to the connective family feeling that our community enjoys and we’re always welcoming others to join us.
Hill Toppers is a men’s group that meets for breakfast on the first Friday of every month at Jason’s Cafe in Menlo Park (located at 1246 El Camino Real, Menlo Park, CA 94025). We pray together, eat together and periodically go out and serve together in a variety of ways. You’re welcome to join us for breakfast or simply a cup of coffee!
Prime Timers meets for a potluck style lunch every 2nd Thursday of the month (with a break during the summer months). All are welcome to join this group as we gather to share in a meal, conversation and often enough, a service project of some sort immediately following the meal. We meet in Capel Hall here on Messiah’s campus. We join in prayer, and general conversation with one another with plenty of jokes and laughter for all.
