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
The Beatitudes

Kids of all ages are invited to join us this fall for a different kind of Sunday School! Since we cannot meet in person, we will be offering weekly, video-based lessons on "The Beatitudes" from Matthew's gospel. ‚ÄčIf you are not on the email list to receive the coloring sheets and other information that goes along with these lessons, please contact the church office at

We have developed a safe plan to hold classes during this time of restrictions because of Covid-19. Each grade will meet online from 12-1 p.m. Sixth graders will meet on the first Sunday of the month. Seventh and 8th graders will meet on the second Sunday. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jen Elsenbroek.
