At Messiah, we have an intergenerational congregational approach to youth, young adult, and family ministry. That means that we all--the whole congregation--are the people who plan youth events, teach classes, make friends with children and teens, offer advice and support, act as role models, and, most importantly, share the Christian community.

Sunday School

This year, we are using a new Sunday School curriculum called Mini Revolutions. This curriculum is more easily adaptable to having different age groups in one class.
Sunday School meets during our 10:30 am worship service. The children hear a children's message from the pastors at the beginning of worship and then the pastors send them to their Sunday School classes. When their class is done the children return to worship in time for communion. 
If you have questions about Sunday School or would like to volunteer, please email our Christian Education Coordinator Grace Gronowski at

The fall and spring retreats will be held at Fortune Lake Lutheran Camp and the winter retreat will be held at Messiah. Confirmation will be led by Pastor Andrew and Pastor Molly with the assistance of Jen Elsenbroek and other volunteers.
