MYM

Messiah Youth Ministry

Sunday Nights, 5:00-7:00 p.m. for grades 5-12 in our couch room!

All of our students enjoy hanging out Sunday nights for MYM.  We hang out and enjoy fellowship from 5 to 5:30, eat a delicious dinner provided by a volunteer parent from 5:30 to 6, and have a large group game followed by a devotion led by Elizabeth or Matt from 6 to 7.

MESH

Wednesday Nights: 7:00-8:30 p.m. for grades 9-12

MESH is a Bible study led by Elizabeth Ledford.  We spend the first half of our time together hanging out, catching up, eating snacks, and laughing really loudly.  The second half is spent studying a book of the Bible.  We meet in the comfiest room at Messiah – the couch room!

JAM

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

Matt Lee 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 in the couch room 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 Camp Briarwood, 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 DCEs studying God’s word and the Catechism, do service projects, make crafts, 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.
