At Messiah Church, we make life better for families. We understand some of the real struggles of parenting in the midst of all that a busy life affords. So, we have small groups that will help you connect with other parents to grow and develop together. In preschool and elementary school, it is important to understand some foundational principles for living as God’s people. Plug into Sunday morning or Wednesday night Messiah’s Kids programs. And while your family is navigating high school and middle school, be part of a youth group, Sunday School, or Confirmation class to help better understand how faith and life connect.
We strive to reach the lives of children through a variety of engaging activities. We prayerfully and passionately strive to partner together with families as we nurture our children’s faith.
