CHRISTIAN EDUCATION

At Messiah, we believe that the Word of God is the final authority over everything we are and do. Messiah is host to a number of opportunities for in-depth study of the Scriptures that form the foundation of our faith and activities.  Regardless of  your age, background, or level of Biblical knowledge, there is a place for you to begin or continue your journey of learning all about God's Word.

 

If you would like more information about any of these educational opportunities, please contact the church office.

Children

Today's world of confusing choices and changing values makes it absolutely necessary to give our children a strong foundation in the true Word of God.  Messiah's Sunday School program focuses on Scriptural truths and the development of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Kids pre-K through Grade 5 gather every Sunday during the sermon to learn about God through fun lessons and activities.

Community Bible Study

Community Bible Study (CBS) is an interdenominational Bible study for the community.  Church of the Messiah currently hosts two Community Bible Study groups:

 

Women's Day Class meets Thursdays during the school year from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.  An online class is also available. Nursery care is provided for infants and toddlers, as well as age-appropriate curriculum for older kids.  For the 2022-23 term, the Women's Day Class will be studying "Christian Living,” focusing on the books of Philemon; 1, 2, and 3 John; Jude; 1 and 2 Peter; and James. 

 

A Co-Ed Evening Class meets Thursdays during the school year from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.  In-person and online classes are available.  The 2022-23 class will study "Red Sea to the Jordan River," focusing on the books of Exodus, Leviticus, and Numbers.

Connections Class

Those who have recently started attending Messiah, would like to officially join the parish, or would just like to learn more about Messiah and the Christian faith, are encouraged to take the Connections Class.  This five-session class (one class per week for five weeks) covers topics such as  How to Use Your Gifts and Find Your Ministry, and How to Hear From God. This is a great opportunity to meet other people and grow in your faith.  The class is offered twice a year.

Home Groups

In addition to being a wonderful fellowship opportunity, home groups often include Bible studies in their activities.  To learn more about home groups, click here.
