MYM

Messiah Youth Ministry

Every Second Sunday of the month, 5:30-7:30 p.m. for grades 5-12 in our couch room!

All of our students enjoy fellowship and learning God’s Word during MYM.  This year we will be having theme nights once a month and we have extended our time for MYM, which will be lots of fun for students! We will provide dinner, have fellowship from 5:30 to 6, and have a large group game followed by a devotion based on a movie clip led by Jodi Sorenson, Michael Neumann, or a youth PEER trained leader, from 6:30 to 7:30.

JAM

Junior high At Messiah

Wednesday Nights, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. for grades 5-8

Michael Neumann leads this Tuesday night gathering where Junior High students (5th through 8th graders) can enjoy fun, fellowship, and prayerful support apart from their busy school schedules. We pray, have a devotion, and play lots of fun games which provide students with a nice break in the middle of the week from school and extracurricular activities!

Confirmation Camp

Messiah approaches Confirmation in a unique way. First of all, we ask that our youth come to Bible Class on Sunday mornings for regular strengthening in the Word. Our fifth graders study the Old Testament, our sixth graders study the New Testament, and our seventh graders study Luther’s Small Catechism.  Rather than adding to that a weekly confirmation class, we’ve created a yearly camp experience. Every summer we gather our students who have just completed fifth, sixth, or seventh grade and we take them to Lake Lavon Camp & Conference Center, where we run a Confirmation Camp for four days. We also take along some of our fantastic senior high youth who volunteer to serve and  mentor our younger students, while helping in various ways throughout the camp. During this time, our students have devotions together, worship God, spend serious time with our pastors and DCE studying God’s Word and the Catechism, do service projects, swim, play games, eat surprisingly tasty camp food, laugh at everything, and grow together. We’ve found that this time is often one of the best relational and spiritual memories our youth carry with them.
