First Visit

We are excited that you decided to visit us today! You will find Messiah to be a diverse congregation that has a place for everyone!

What are the service times and What time should I arrive?

We have services at:

  • 8:30 am – Traditional Worship in our Sanctuary. Weekly Communion is served.
  • 10:00 am – Traditional Worship in our Sanctuary
  • 10:00 am – Servicio de Adoración en la Capilla (en español)

Sunday School for all ages is available at 10 am. Adult classes are also offered at 9:30, 10 and 11 am.

We suggest that you plan to arrive 10 minutes early to allow for parking and finding your way around. Members of our Welcoming Team will be at our Welcome Kiosk to help you find what you’re looking for.

Once I arrive, where do I park?

Our parking lot can be accessed from our main entrance off Rolling Road. If the lot is completely full there is overflow parking at The Traford Office Complex (8340 Traford Lane, Springfield, VA 22152) and there is an open gate and path through which you can access the church.

Where is the Nursery?

Our nursery is located on the lower level in the educational wing. Members of our Welcoming Team will be at the front entrance to assist you. Nursery care is available all morning. We have vibrating pagers that we’ll give you when leaving your child.

Where is the Sanctuary?

As you walk in the front entrance, the Sanctuary will be to your right. The contemporary service is held in the Lord Youth Center which is located in the back entrance of the building. The Lord Youth Center is also accessible by walking through the church. It is on the lower level of the educational wing.

What should I wear?

You should wear what makes you comfortable. What’s important is that you have joined us for worship, not what you wear.
