Statement on Corona Virus (COVID-19)

A message from Pastor Kollmann | March 14, 2020

This continues to be a crazy time in our world.  This email is to let you know what your church is continuing to do for you.

We will still be suspending the regular worship services and in person Bible studies for now. But we still want to help our families with their spiritual needs. Please use the links below to find our online services and Bible studies:

Links will also be available on facebook and twitter. Be sure to share our live services with other people, and fill out the digital “White Card” in the links below the video player to let us know that you are watching and to make your prayer requests.  You will also note that there is a bulletin printed on our website to help you follow along with the worship celebration.

For Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday, between 10:00 and 11:00 A.M., we are offering you an opportunity to drive your car by the church to pick up a gift and to hear your Messiah staff say hello and wish you well.  On Palm Sunday, we will be handing out palm leaves to you, and on Easter Sunday, we will be handing out a special Easter family bag.  Just drive through the covered area between the chapel and sanctuary.  We will be there to give you a gift and to greet you!

I thank you for continuing to make your offerings to God’s work through our church.  You are very important to our ministry during this difficult time.  You can mail in your offering, or you can use your cell phone to text the word MLCPLANO to the phone number 73256.  After that, just follow the prompts.  You will be sent a secure page for a one-time set up of funding through your bank account or debit card.

Here are some common sense suggestions to help you through this difficult time with the Corona Virus:

  • Wash your hands with soap for 20-30 seconds.
  • Clean frequently touched items like tables and door knobs and cabinet handles.
  • Clean your portable devices like cell phones and tablets and computers.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with the crook of your elbow
  • Keep a one month supply of prescription medicines on hand.

If you are diagnosed with Covid-19, please let the church office know at 972-398-7500.

Continue to pray that God will bring healing during this difficult time.  I believe that God is going to use this time to build His Church.  God is in control, and God always wants the best for His children.  I encourage you to pray that God will take away the danger from this virus soon.  I encourage you to trust God to take care of you.  I encourage you to find in all of our social media the peace and the comfort and the hope that only God can give.  God bless you!

Messiah Childrens Events | March 23, 2020

Children’s Sunday School and the Wednesday evening Lenten Family Services have been suspended in support of the measures to slow the spread of COVID-19.

We will be putting together material for families to use at home on Wednesday night. This will allow you to continue worshiping throughout Lent while following the Star Words of True Hope, something we are all in need of at the moment. You can find our Family Lent Service YouTube Playlists HERE.

We will also be exploring the resources we use for our Sunday School Curriculum, sending out and posting devotions that you can use at home with your children to keep immersed in God’s Word, as we together, put our trust in Christ alone.

As resources become available, you will receive an email or you can check back here,

With the Spirit’s peace,
Amy Plenger
