Messiah offers several opportunities for individuals to enhance their faith through Christian education.
Each Sunday at 9 am, people gather with Pastor Ron to study the Bible passages that will be used during worship on the following Sunday. Hearing and talking about the passages in advance allows people to see how the message of those passages plays out in their lives during the week.
There are several opportunities for children to grow in their faith journey. Each worship service includes a children’s message by Pastor Ron. Following the message, children may stay in the worship service with their family or attend a children’s Sunday School during which they engage in activities built around a Bible story. Following those activities, the children return to the worship service for communion. Messiah also provides First Communion and Confirmation instruction.
Two groups meet monthly for learning opportunities. A women’s Bible Study (Ruth’s Circle) meets at 1 pm on the second Monday of the month, either at the church, at someone’s home or at a local restaurant. They use the Bible study included in the Women of the ELCA’s Gather magazine as the basis for their discussion. A monthly book clubs meets at the church at 2 pm on the fourth Monday of the month to discuss a book of interest.
