Christian Education

The adults in our congregation enjoy continued growth in the Word through studying the Sunday scripture lessons in-depth at the weekly Continue in my Word. Many check out current and classic books and tapes from our church library, attend prayer breakfast on Friday, participate in a Sunday morning Adult Bible Study and take part in Bible studies and small group gatherings, as well. The women of Messiah are invited to participate in Book Club, a Women’s Bible Study and Circle meetings, too.

Fostering Faith

A growing faith requires constant nurturing — the kind provided by the Christian education programs at Messiah. From our youngest youth to our adult membership, the goal of our Christian education program is to help each member continually grow intellectually and spiritually in their walk with Christ.
