The People of the Episcopal Church of the Messiah welcome you. We are only a few years old and are the only Episcopal Church in Myrtle Beach. Our commitment is to build up a community of faith committed to loving God and sharing that blessing.
We gather each Sunday around the Lord’s Table to be equipped for service through the sharing of Christ’s body and blood. All baptized Christians are welcome to receive the grace of Holy Communion at the Messiah’s altar. Our prayer is one we often sing:
“Strengthen for service, Lord, the hands that holy things have taken.” [Hymn 312]
On Sunday mornings you will find us at 10:00 am sharing the campus of St. Philip Lutheran Church at 6200 North Kings Highway. Our worship is in the north end of the building in Wingard Hall. We share a lot with our Lutheran friends. You’ll find a worship nursery, church school opportunities and a coffee hour following worship which feels more like brunch!
Our Vicar is the Rev. Dr. Randy Ferebee and he may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mail may be sent to us at Box 70367, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina 29572.
Our telephone number is (843) 999-0888. It is an internet-based system which delivers your message and offers general information.
For information on the restoration of the name and property of our diocese, please say this prayer, O God of unchangeable power and eternal light: Look favorably on your whole Church, that wonderful and sacred mystery; by the effectual working of your providence, carry out in tranquillity the plan of salvation; let the whole world see and know that things which were being cast down are being raised up, and things which had grown old are being made new, and that all things are being brought to their perfection by him through whom all things were made, your Son Jesus Christ our Lord; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. and visit http://www.episcopalchurchsc.org/legal-news.html
The Church of the Messiah is an intentionally inclusive community called to love the Lord
and to serve God’s world in a spirit of reconciliation, hope, and healing.
The Church of the Messiah practices following Jesus to experience for ourselves
and share with others God’s love by serving the world in His name.

Lord God, you call your servants to ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown; give us faith to go out with good courage, not knowing where we go, but only that your hand is leading us, and your love supporting us; to the glory of your name. Amen.- Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham, England
