Christian Education

The Bible is God’s Great Gift for mankind to open, read and learn from, not just while we are school aged, or going through confirmation, but for our whole life. From the cradle to grave, studying God’s work in the company of others will be a source of blessing.   It is His Great Heritage and shall remain so when we pass this Great Gift to children or grandchildren, family, friends and strangers.  Explore the many ways at Messiah Lutheran you can open this gift.

All are welcome!
