  1. Well done. Thank you for doing.
    I found God’s community of comfort afterwards.

    1. I brag on Messiah technological skills to my sister and my riends. Thank you for the the definition and history lesson about how people from Africa was thought to have a better immune system. Now I must research Rev. Allen and that time period. All of you are so good at helping us deal with this serious and scary period. My belief in God the father and Jesus his son is very important to me at this time. I do believe they are our only hope. Thanks to all three of you and please take care of yourselves.

    2. Reggie and Cathy, Congratulations on your first granddaughter. She is a precious gift from God. I enjoyed your sermon about how all of us are pieces of art and really enjoyed seeing you with your first grandson while you peach to us. He was so, so very good. Thank you for a lesson on what we are seeing when we look at the old , master’s works. I too took art history and was able to walk into some of the Churches in Rome ,and Ftance. I marvel at the gold used in these old places of worship. I also know some history of the Roman, Catholic Church Not too holy but I did feel I was in a sacred city ,Rome.
      I wish I was in Springfield to be a part of Vacation Bible School because my grandson loved coming to it. Maybe ,he will come this time because I think he will be with his Dad for two weeks. I can not wait until I can break bread with Messiah church friends. Take Care,ljj

  2. I sure appreciate all the high tech people behind the scenes that make it possible for our Pastors to bring us distance ministry such as this and our You Tube clips. Oh , yeah, I appreciate the sermons too.

    Big Hugs, (the safest kind – email hugs!)

  3. Reggie,

    Your sermon on “The Theology of Pandemic “ was most informative and inspirational. Knowing we may not be able to attend church for awhile, receiving your sermon on-line is most satisfying in hearing your message. It helps in many ways for me to continue my faith journey in Christ.

  4. Thank you Reggie for allowing God to use you as His messenger. Praying forGods blessing upon you, your family, and the church God has entrusted to your care.
    Your message of love and hope in Jesus Christ, even in the midst of chaos, was deeply appreciated.
    With deepest love and Respect

  5. Thanks for all y’all do.
    May God Bless, in Jesus name

  6. Thank you Reggie, Lauren, and Pia for the leadership you provide and especially for the calming presence the video and the words and prayers provide. The thing we will miss the most is the familiar coming together to worship and to share with each other. Already I miss my “peeps”.

  7. I am always awed and inspired by our pastors, staff, and congregation. Now more then ever. Thank you for bringing “church’ out of our building during this pandemic.

    Praying for all,
    Virtual Hugs,

  8. A very meaningful and inspiring service this morning. Thank you for sharing the message of Jesus Christ and the importance of Palm Sunday in our lives during this time when we are all facing challenges and uncertainty with COVID-19.

  9. Blessings and Peace to our church family at Messiah!

  10. Reggie and all the staff,
    You have worked so hard and brilliantly to provide services at home for us. I cannot thank you enough. The music and the videos and the messages have lifted my spirits. Your
    dedication has kept me connected to my Messiah family.
    Please do take care of yourselves.
    With appreciation and love,

  11. I would like to receive your weekly e:mails. I am not on your list at this point. Thank you very much.

  16. Hello!
    May I be added to the email distribution list? My husband, Steve, has been forwarding the church emails to me. THANK YOU!

    Also, I’d like to thank Reggie, Pia, Lauren, the office staff, Jessica, Rachel, all the choir members- vocal & handbell (adult, teens, & children), all the musicians, readers of scripture, sound & lighting engineers, and anyone I may have missed, for all the effort out forth in this weekly service. ❤️
    God Bless all of you for your service & commitment to Messiah.

  17. I just want you to know how much your Sunday services are appreciated. Thank you.

  18. Thank you for reminding up to go to God this week with our pain, fear, and hope.

  19. Just realized……….virtual sermons have given us an opportunity to not only receive our meaningful sermons, but also to experience and know the exceptional musical talent we have at Messiah. I previously attended the early service and now I have the opportunity to see so many others who have contributed to the Messiah family. Thank you for all you do!!

  20. Hearing Rheva’s name reminded me of the remarkable and wonderful times I had as part of the large singles group that she, too, was a part of. That brought to mind one part of the church that hasn’t been used for a background. Sometime could you include the stained glass window in the rear hallway staircase. There is a great story about how Messiah came to possess it. Maybe a sermon could be inspired by the story.

  21. Messiahumc, ,I can not wait until we can come together in our beautiful sanctuary and hear our ministers teach the teachings of the Holy Trinity. I would like to have a bring a dish to share after a Sundays sermon. We have the best cooks in all of Springfield.

  22. Many thanks to Amy and her band of Youth Group Christians for providing a very informative and meaningful Maudy Thursday Service for the congregation. The leadership of each youth participant was heartfelt and sincere. You are the future of our church and I feel confident that you have many talents yet to be revealed. Thanks so very much for providing such a spiritual gift to all of us. Easter blessings to all!

  23. Gods people gathering in person in the circle drive! It’s wonderful and so refreshing. It is good AGAIN to be IN and OUTSIDe the house of the LoRD! Ya’ll come back MESSIAH and bring others! Pia explained it well today: bring in ALL the disciples of Christ.

  24. Very interesting sermon “, on the “wrong “side of history. We must acknowledge this, however cancelling culture should not and can not be the answer. Could it be that we are wiping out the “wrong” side of history , thus one can not learn from their mistakes? I feel God wants us to learn from our mistakes, not wipe out any history that shows our mistakes.
