Your Messiah Properties Committee can be reached via email at

Your Messiah Lutheran Church Properties Board is looking for ADVISORS and Board members.  Please consider serving as an ADVISOR for the Properties Board.  An ADVISOR does not necessarily complete the work (although that would be great!) but can be a source of information on what work needs to be done and how best to accomplish the work properly and in a timely and cost-effective manner.  If you are interested please see Susan Wollman or email

Parking Lot Rehabilitation

After delaying the patching and sealing of the parking lot for years, it is now well past time for repairs. Proper repair will total at least ~$39,000. A contractor has been identified but no work can proceed without funding. The Church Council voted to begin a capital campaign to raise funds in time to sign a spring 2021 contract. Please consider making a special donation towards this project.

Lighting Project — Complete!

Through the Empower Maryland program and working with Start Lumen, Messiah Lutheran Church now has LED lights throughout the building and on the exterior of the building. These upgrades have improved the energy efficiency, enhanced the night-time safety and added much need brightness to some dark spaces. Our cost of this project is financed through Pepco at 0% interest over 24 months and is ~$700 per month. Payments begin January 2021.

Maintenance Updates 

The table below lists some small projects that may be suitable for a family or one or two individuals to complete.  Please let Susan know if you are planning one of these projects and if you need any materials to complete the project.
