First Communion

First communion at Messiah traditionally takes place when a child is in 5th grade. After 3 classes with the pastor we hold first communion on Maundy Thursday. 

Children younger than 5th grade cross their arms over their chest and receive a blessing at the altar from the pastor.

Sunday School

​Messiah Lutheran Church typically holds Sunday school classes (for all ages, adults too) every Sunday during the Spring, Winter and Fall at 9:45am. This is between our early morning service and our 11:00am service.  

Our classes are staffed by dedicated volunteers. The curriculum is Bible based  and enriched with age appropriate activities. Our children are actively involved in our worship services and share the joys of youthful celebrations in songs and pageants year round. 

Adult Education

​We meet on Sunday mornings at 9:45 am in the Spring, Fall, and Winter. We have studied many topics in the past, from Genesis to Revelation and from Ancient Christian history to modern thinking about faith and Christian living. See you there!


Confirmation traditionally takes place in 8th grade. This is after 2 years of instruction with the Pastor on Martin Luther's Small Catechism.

On Pentecost Sunday we celebrate the confirmations of some of our youth.
