Youth Sunday at Messiah

    Each year, we celebrate our youth as valued members of the Messiah family by setting aside a special Sunday during which we invite them to conduct the Sunday Worship Services.  This Sunday, November 16, please rejoice with us as children and teens from age 2 and up use their talents and gifts to take on the various roles that are normally filled by adults, acting as greeters, ushers, service assistants, and even “pastors.”  We welcome Lexi Holtzman and Justin Silverstrim as they share their messages of faith from the pulpit, Zachary Haefner as he presents a Temple Talk on the topic of Stewardship, and Elise LaVallee as she presents the Children’s Sermon.  Others will share their musical talents:  the Cherub Choir and the Chapel/Youth Singers and Ringers will offer some selections, Lauren Peck will play two pieces on the piano, and the trio of Gordon Emick, Quinn Kline, and Sean Wither will present a contemporary song they have been working on.


Although our youth will be in the forefront this Sunday, they are very active throughout the year in many other ways – assisting with worship services, helping with Sunday School, Bible School, and service events as well as spending time together and having fun!  Our congregation is truly blessed by the involvement and dedication of our youth.  Thanks be to God!

In the same way, let your light shine before others,

that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

— Matthew 5:16
