Hello Messy Church families! We miss each of you and we are praying for your family. Please let us know how we can support and pray for you. In place of gathering in person, we hold Messy Church on Zoom. See details below for how to participate.  Email Tricia Guerrero if you have any questions or just want to say “Hi!”.

March Messy Church via Zoom!!
The theme for March is “Pets and Peace.” We’ll celebrate the gift of animals in our world and especially those we call our pets. We’ll learn how God wants us to show love for our world by taking care of it. One blessing of Zoom—we can bring our pets with us—so bring your pet or favorite stuffed animal and join us for a fun time at Messy Church!

God’s love in an accessible way

At Messy Church, today’s busy families of all shapes and sizes are invited into a welcoming space to experience faith. Messy Church meets once a month. Everyone is welcomed as they are. Whether you are single or partnered, young or old, tidy or messy, have questions or doubts, are filled with joy or struggling with life, you will be welcomed at Messy Church.

All ages gather to engage in activities, crafts and games that bring the month’s biblical story to life.
Following the activities and crafts, all ages join in short celebration with an interactive bible story, music and prayer.
Each Messy Church concludes with a meal. Sitting at a table with new and old friends, sharing the stories of our real and messy lives!

Why is it called “Messy Church”?
Lucy Moore, the founder of Messy Church writes that the name was an invitation to “reach families that were on the ‘messy edges’ of church who weren’t ‘tidily’ congregation already. It’s also a church for people whose lives may be messy – perhaps in the past the Church has too often appeared to be saying that we only welcome people whose lives are well-ordered.”
(Lucy Moore, BBC Songs of Praise, 2013)
