Messiah Quilters
The Messiah Quilters provide quilts for people in need in places all across the world. We have a lot of quilts ready to complete and if you can tie a knot, you can help us out.  We even have jobs you can do sitting down.  Think about stopping in and see what we do.  If you are unable to join us and would like to sew at home, we have kits available.


Memory Bears
The Memory Bears Group meets once a month to make teddy bears out of clothing from people who have passed away, to comfort the grieving.  We would love to have you join us! We have jobs that do not require sewing as well as jobs that do.

Daybreak Shelter
Volunteers are needed to serve dinner to at Daybreak Homeless Shelter in Joliet. The commitment is from 5 - 7 pm on the second Monday of each month. A team of Messiah members meets at the shelter to set up and serve dinner. Sign up in the Narthex.

Micro Pantry

Messiah has developed a micro-food pantry that is housed in the closet across from the church office. This ministry is 100% donation driven and maintained by the Evangelism Board. You can support this ministry through prayer, and through monetary or food donations. Contact the church office for more info.
