Pastor’s Welcome



Lebanon, Illinois

Welcome to Messiah’s web-site.  Regardless of why or how you’ve ended up at this site, I sincerely hope and pray that you will find it helpful and informative.  For just over twenty years God has been serving His people in and around Lebanon through the Word and Sacrament ministry of Messiah Lutheran Church, and this presence on the internet is just another means for connecting people with His Church, His Word, His Son.


If you’re looking for a church home, new or otherwise, please come visit us on Sunday morning or for any of our worship/study opportunities, or contact us via the phone or internet if you have any questions or special concerns.  If you’d like to know more about the congregation and about what we believe, teach, and confess, then check out a few of the other pages here at this site, or the “Lutheran” and “Theological” links provided.  God has some things He’d like you to hear and know, and it would be our sincere pleasure to share His Word with you.


If you’re looking for devotional materials or resources, check out our “Devotional” links or some of the other Lutheran sites.  And if you’re just trying to catch up with a service you may have missed, please check out our audio files of weekly readings and related sermons.


As mentioned earlier, our intent is to help connect people with God’s holy Word, and I sincerely hope this web-site will help us do just that.  May God bless the time you spend checking out our site and related links, and then come and join us, if possible, to praise our Lord and to receive the gifts He desires to share with His people.

                                                                           In His service,

                                                                                 Rev. Brian G. Holle
