Welcome to Messiah Lutheran Church!

Messiah Lutheran Church is a Christian community located on the West Side of Santa Cruz, California.  We are within walking distance of the UCSC campus, in the Westlake Neighborhood. 

Here at Messiah Lutheran Church we desire to know our Lord and Savior better, to grow in our faith, and share that faith journey with others. We experience faith together at our Services, Bible Classes, and Events. This faith is an active path we journey on together.  Join us!

The Chancel Triptych Carving

The Harold Johnson 50th Anniversary Committee engaged Ernst Schwidder, a Washington Liturgical Artist, to design and create a carving around the theme of Jesus the Messiah to celebrate Pastor Johnson’s ministry.  Included in the celebration to the Glory of God are the pulpit and baptismal font.
