Families are very important at Messiah. We pour lots of time and resources into helping parents and grandparents make their families, their marriages and their futures strong. In addition to strong children’s, youth and adult ministries we offer the following ministry targeted at families:

Parenting Seminars

Held throughout the fall and winter, parents and grandparents gather to learn and discuss parenting issues and techniques. Parents and grandparents are treated to a wonderful dinner upstairs. Small tables will be set up in Sanctuary to enjoy a home-cooked dinner. The seminar will begin during dinner. Children are treated to a pizza party, games and a short teaching.

Now in our third season of parenting seminars, we have received great feedback about their value to the family. Please call the church office for more information on upcoming seminars. Please join us. The seminar is by donation only.

Marriage Ministry

Messiah’s Marriage Ministry is dedicated to making marriage stronger and more Christ-centered.

Messiah uses the curriculum by Gary Thomas called “Sacred Marriage.” The premise of the study is that God’s main purpose for marriage is to help us to become holy and not just happy. Then in the process of becoming more holy and Christ-like, we will find real joy in serving and loving the Lord and our spouses.

Please join us for our next couple’s retreat and a renewal of vows ceremony.
