Making Disciples – Grades 7-8

What is “Making Disciples”?

Making Disciples is part of our confirmation program offered at Messiah Lutheran Church for junior high students in Grades 7-8.  While it is a major component of our confirmation program, all junior high students may participate whether or not they plan to become confirmed members of Messiah.  “Making Disciples” meets on the Second Sunday of every month, May through September, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. beginning with a light supper.

At “Making Disciples,” teens are matched with an adult mentor to further explore their faith at a deeper level as they continue to live a life of faith in the Covenant of their baptism..

Other activities are planned throughout the year to enrich the learning experience through exploration of faith, service activities, and fun events.  For a complete overview of Messiah’s Confirmation Ministry, visit our Confirmation Ministry page under the Christian Educaion tab.

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

Dates for 2015-16 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.)
