About Us

Messiah Lutheran Church in Germantown Maryland was formed in 1976. Here are the directions and map and how to contact us. Please see our statement of what we believe. The explanation of the Messiah Cross also explains what our congregation values. We are a member of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod (LCMS), a group of Lutheran churches in the United States.

Our Pastor is Rev. R Burk Hill Pastor HIll has been serving the congregation since Thanksgiving 1997.

Our worship style follows an Order of Worship that offers confession and forgiveness of sins, proclaims the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and celebrates the Last Supper. This is our Word and Sacrament ministry in Germantown Maryland. Our worship services frequently follow a formal liturgy found in the Lutheran Service Book. At other times, we use a more informal mix of worship hymns and songs, and dialogue which focus on the scripture readings for the day. When there is a fifth Sunday in a month, we use the Order of Matins from The Lutheran Hymnal (1941). Our Flentrop Orgelbouw pipe organ accompanies our hymns and liturgy.

We have many opportunities to serve one another through our ministries. Our congregation is called to serve the children of Germantown with our preschool, Sunday school, and vacation bible school. We also support a variety of local, national, and international missions. We also have a thriving music ministry at Messiah.
