General note

Messiah Lutheran organized under the guidance of Dr. E. C. Bloomquist of First Lutheran, Tacoma. Groundbreaking for the first church was held June 4, 1925. Pastor E. Arthur Larson began serving Messiah in 1928 in conjunction with Bethel of Tacoma. On January 13, 1942 the congregation voted to become a separate parish and established a Sunday School at Lutherland in Federal Way. Indebtedness of the property was paid off in 1944. The chancel area was remodeled in 1945, a pipe organ installed in 1947, and a parsonage built in 1948. Property for the future building was purchased in the early 1950s. Groundbreaking for the new church was held October 13, 1957. The first service in the new building was July 13, 1958. An education building was erected in 1961. In 1979 the 55th anniversary was celebrated with the dedication of a new education unit.
