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

Register your child (ages 3 years old through 5th grade) for Sunday School for the 2023-2024 school year. Sunday school is during the 10:30 worship service. Children are taken to their classrooms by their parents/ guardians at 10:30  before worship begins and return to worship at 11:15 for communion and to lead the sending song. Sunday school begins on September 17th and the last day is May 19th. This year we are incorporating Second Sunday Songs and Sounds. Your children will be singing and playing instruments so that they can be a part of leading worship and also participating in worship on Sunday, December  17th. 

If you have questions about Sunday School or would like to volunteer, please email Pastor Molly at the church office or call 906.225.1119

Confirmation students eligible to be confirmed will receive a letter from the pastors. Confirmation Sunday is on Reformation Sunday on October 27th, 2024 at the 10:30 service. 

Confirmation will be held as Saturday retreats from 9:00 - 12:00. They are always the first Saturday of the month. We join with other Lutheran churches in our conference to share leadership and space. We will travel around to the different churches each month and at least twice a year hold service activities.
