Messiah Village BIC


Welcome to Messiah Village Church

The Messiah Village Brethren in Christ Church meets on the campus of Messiah Lifeways at Messiah Village in Mechanicsburg, PA.
In this unique setting, the Messiah Village Church ministers to people from a variety of Christian backgrounds, and those who have never had a church connection. We seek to include a variety of traditions in our worship. Older adults are the focus of our ministry, but we welcome worshippers of all ages and appreciate the involvement of young and old alike!
We value relevant teaching from the Bible, and we encourage one another as we seek to grow in our Christian faith. We have a great interest in world missions, and we support a number of missionaries and ministries, both local and worldwide.
Our worship services are held on Sunday mornings at 10 a.m. Come check us out. Everyone is welcome here.

Pastor David Parry

Pastor David Parry was born and raised in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania, in the Primitive Methodist Church. The church was an integral part of his life, giving him many opportunities for faith formation and service.

David graduated from Eastern University with a degree in psychology and secondary education. He later received his M.Div. from Southern Baptist
seminary and then a MA in pastoral counseling and a D.Min. degree from Ashland Seminary.

David pastored Faith Community Church in Strongsville, Ohio, for 25 years and then served as a full-time chaplain at Copeland Oaks/Crandall Medical Center (CCRC) Sebring, Ohio, for 18 years. He served as the chaplain for Wesley Village (CCRC), Pittston, Pennsylvania, for two years prior to coming to Messiah Village Church.

During his years of pastoral ministry, David served in a variety of denominational leadership positions and boards.

What To Expect (I’m new here)

Our services are held at 10:00 a.m. in the Chapel located in the Village Center. Most of us arrive early—up to a half hour before the service— to visit with each other. We worship God through singing familiar hymns and choruses, prayer, and engaging Bible-based preaching. We desire that each person who worships with us would develop an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. We love to support both local and worldwide missions by hosting missionaries and representatives and by giving financial support.

Do you love to serve? We offer multiple service opportunities that enhance the life of the congregation and connect you to the bigger picture of caring for others.
