Nursing Announcements

We are pleased to announce that the two new nursing neighborhoods will be called Greenwood & Engle.

Village Square Announcements

We are pleased to announce that the two new dining venues in Village Square have been named!

 Café Overview
Imagine entering a warm and comfortable space. Sit by the fireplace with a good book or join friends at a large community table. You’ll find Starbucks coffee, delicious teas, smoothies, and healthy menus for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Enjoy watching the Chef prepare your seasonal salad or sandwich while you take in the beauty of vibrant art and angled wood beams on the ceiling. When the weather warms,take your delicious fare to the patio and enjoy dining al fresco. Whether you’re on the go or settling in to visit with friends, this new Village Square café will meet your needs and exceed your expectations. And the name is……Café 100… a modern name inspired by the address of the Messiah Village campus,100 Mt. Allen Drive. It is short, easy to say, and easy to remember. Look for a finalized logo coming soon!

Upscale Casual Restaurant Overview
This new dining venue will feature creative cuisine with a celebratory twist. Wood ceilings and ribbons of glass will surround this comfortably modern restaurant, giving it a “special occasion” feel without being fussy. Special features include front porch dining tables, some booths, and a private dining room. Open for lunch and dinner, the culinary team will shine as they create new specials each week along with a savory array of seafood, chicken, pork, beef, and vegetarian entrees. And the name is……Kathryn’s on the Square…a name that nods to Village Square and the venue locale, which sits at a central intersection. Local historians may recall that Messiah Lifeways was founded in 1896 thanks to the efforts of four “Katie’s” – a group of inspirational women who were among the earliest promoters of the ministry. While the spelling may not match exactly, the feminine and formal name “Kathryn” seemed an artistic way to honor our legacy in this new space.

Day Spa Overview & Name
The new day spa and salon in Village Square will be called Cerise Day Spa! This elegant one-word name is layered with meaning. From the French word for cherry, Cerise pays homage to Cherry Circle, where Village Square is being built. Cerise is also a color name, describing a deep, rich red hue that might evoke feelings of joy and delight as guests take time to relax and savor a few hours of pampering and self-care. The day spa logo will be revealed soon!

January 6, 2016

The Messiah Village receptionists will move to the Chapel entrance lobby during construction. That area is now our new “main entrance.” Access to the current Village Center lobby will be for team members who can open the door using an electronic fob. Visitors and families should use the Chapel entrance as their main point of entry. Visitor parking is available in the marked Yellow lot near the Chapel. Messiah Village residents needing assistance with postage, packages, or US mail can find the mail room open Monday-Friday between 9:30-10:30 am and 2:00-3:00 pm.
