Christian Formation

Experience God anew through our many opportunities for group Bible study, activity and discussion…

There is no in-person Sunday School at the present time due to COVID restrictions.  However, a Christian Formation Blast is being sent to all members either via email or USPS each week.  Included in the Blast are links for youth Sunday School, adult Bible study, and other Christian Formation topics.  The lectionary bible readings for the next week are also included.

Adult Studies:
1.  Midweek with Pastor Ryan – Join Pastor Ryan via ZOOM @ 1PM for topical studies.  A link will be emailed to all with an address on file in the church office. If you would like to receive the link, please let the church office know and your name will be added.  The current study is the book “Life Together” by Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

2. Women’s Bible Study – This lay led  group meets at Messiah in our fellowship hall at 6:30 PM on the 2nd and 4th  Wednesdays of the month.  Group consensus helps determine the topic and style of the gathering.  Currently the group meets following CDC guidance for social distancing and mask wearing.
