By all the means you can,

In all the ways you can,

In all the places you can,

At all the times you can,

To all the people you can,

As long as ever you can."

We Aim to be Disciples of Jesus Christ

The Eastern PA Conference collected flood buckets for Texas and Florida and neighboring states in the wake of Hurricane Harvey and Irma. One way we as a community helped was by supplying flood buckets to those in need. Messiah collected materials and put them together.


Thank you to all who helped with this event, it was a success.

It has been decided that this will be a continued mission of Messiah, and we will continue to collect supplies and assemble flood buckets throughout the year.  For a list of materials needed, please call the church office.

Messiah's Christmas Challenge 2017

Messiah's 2017 Christmas Challenge raised $7,153 for Cradles to Crayons in addition to many clothing items for donation to children living in poverty in the Philadelphia area.  We sent a group of 21 volunteers to work in Cradles to Crayon's warehouse in Conshohocken on December 17th, sorting donations of clothing to be distributed to those in need.  Thank you to all who participated in this year's Challenge through the gift of your money, goods, and time!!  We will deliver the donated items and financial contribution in January, and will schedule a second volunteering trip - details to follow.


Did you know that 37% of children in Philadelphia live below the poverty line?  Messiah’s 2017 Christmas Challenge supported Cradles to Crayons.  The mission of this organization is to provide children living in poverty with items that they need to thrive at home, school, and play.  They collect new and nearly new children’s items and distribute them in the five southeastern counties surrounding Philadelphia and Camden, New Jersey.  To learn more about their work, please visit  

Messiah's Christmas Challenge 2018 and 2019

For the past two years, Messiah has raised thousands of dollars to support two local Philadelphia elementary schools. Juniata Park Academy and Cayuga Elementary School are the two schools that have recieved countless supplies from our efforts. Our donations include musical instruments, books, games, gym supplies, and feminine products to name a few!


Messiah is very proud of our efforts to support the children of the Philadelphia Schools and we hope to continue this mission in the coming years!
