would like to share about a time Messiah moment that I experienced recently. It didn’t happen at Messiah, and it may not seem like a big deal, but God showed up — and that is a pretty big deal!

Mrs. Schmidt

Mrs. Schmidt shows God’s compassion through her listening ears. Some of the greatest needs that any child has are to be heard, understood, and accepted. Smiling from her mouth to her eyes, Mrs. Schmidt has a way of genuinely listening to the hearts of her students. And beyond the classroom, Mrs. Schmidt is committed to growing disciples who love Jesus with all their heart and are not afraid to live out their faith in their everyday lives. For the past year and a half, Mrs. Schmidt has been attending a discipleship immersion that is designed to teach church leaders a specific discipling rhythm that can be repeated over and over again to help people become closer followers of Christ.

Mrs. Roth

Mrs. Roth serves at Messiah Lutheran School as our Director of School Nutrition. Her care for Messiah’s students and staff is reflected in the way she plans and provides delicious meals each school day and, more importantly, how she shares the love of Jesus with everyone she meets. Here is just one story of how Mrs. Roth cares for the students and families of Messiah; it has become our tradition for our parents to bake cookies to share with students and guests during a time of fellowship after the Christmas Concert. Mrs. Roth knows some of our students and parents have nut, dairy, or gluten allergies. It was so important to her that all the guests could enjoy the treats after the concert, she baked a variety of more than 1,000 cookies that were safe (and of course, yummy!) for all guests to enjoy!
