BYG – Grades 3-6

What is “BYG”?

BYG stands for “Building Youth Groups” and is a junior youth group at Messiah Lutheran Church just for kids in Grades 3-6!  “BYG” meets on the Second Sunday of every month, May through September, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. beginning with a light supper.

At “BYG,” we will have FUN, explore our FAITH together, and LEARN about Jesus through Bible Study, games, team-building activities, songs and prayer.  There is no cost to attend, and parents are welcome to join us for supper.  Whether you are a member of Messiah, another church, or have not yet found a church home, all are welcome!

Special activities are offered just for BYG kids at other times, including an overnight trip to Camp Mount Luther in July and a fall day trip to the camp.

For more information, contact Kathy Wither at or by phone at 570-326-7171, ext. 203.

Dates for 2015-2016 sessions are:

September 13 – October 11 – November 8 – December 13 – January 10 – February 14 – March 13 – April 10 – May 1*

*(Please note:  The May date is the first Sunday because the second Sunday in May is Mother’s Day.)
