Welcome to Messiah Lutheran Church. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers and lovers of the word of God. Messiah has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for services on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.

Pilgrimage to Chimayo
We will be gathering Good Friday pilgrims at 7 am in our parking lot on Friday, April 18. There we will go by a caravan of Messiah members and friends from church to Chimayo where Pastor Tom will be meeting the walkers. We will walk together about 2 miles to and from the Sanctuario. Plan on bringing a lunch. We will gather for lunch on the grounds below the Sanctuario. There will be thousands of pilgrims coming from throughout the area including Lutherans from Albuquerque and Rio Rancho. This walk is often featured on national news. The Sanctuario is known as the Lourdes of the West. It is a place of peace but also many believe a place of healing. We plan to return to Albuquerque by mid to late afternoon. Contact Cassandra Osterloh or Pastor Tom if you plan on joining us. (map)
