First Impressions

Thank you for this opportunity to join Messiah Evangelical Lutheran Church during your  interim ministry. I am excited for this new endeavor with you and to see what God will accomplish!

I was born and raised in Salisbury, North Carolina. My Christian faith journey began at Salem Lutheran Church where I was baptized and confirmed. I graduated from Lenoir-Rhyne University (ELCA) in 2000 with a degree in Biology. I attended and graduated from Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary (ELCA) in 2004. I served my seminary internship at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church in College Station, Texas (2002-2003). My first parish was St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Pilger, Nebraska and St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Stanton, Nebraska from 2004-2008. My second call was to Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd in Hastings from 2008-2020. Courtney and I married in 2005 and our son Andrew was born in 2010. Courtney is the Director of Marketing and Sales and Resource Development at Good Samaritan Society—Hastings Village. Some of my interests include late model automobiles, commercial aviation, travel and playing tennis/exercising.  
As I learn my way around Messiah’s neighborhood, I know I can find my way back to Messiah by looking to the bell tower and the lighted cross at the top of the spire, and listening for the hymns playing through the new carillon . From our family, thank you for your warm welcome to Messiah and your Christian hospitality. I give thanks to God for you, the life-changing ministry God is doing here and the future of Messiah! Thank you for being Messiah Evangelical Lutheran Church!
In Christ,
Rev. Steven Peeler

Let’s Be Healthy Together!
Life Line Screening, a leading provider of community-based preventive health screenings, is pleased to offer a preventive health event at Messiah Lutheran Church on 4/2/2020. Five screenings will be offered that scan for potential health problems related to: blocked arteries which is a leading cause of stroke; abdominal aortic aneurysms which can lead to a ruptured aorta; hardening of the arteries in the legs which is a strong predictor of heart disease; atrial fibrillation or irregular heart beat which is closely tied to stroke risk; and a bone density screening, for men and women, used to assess the risk of osteoporosis. Register for a Wellness Package which includes 4 vascular tests and osteoporosis screening from $149 ($139 with our member discount). All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete.  
There are three ways to register for this event and to receive a $10 discount off any package priced above $129,
