High School

Messiah has a very active High School Ministry. This ministry encourages 9th-12th grade students to grow in their relationship with God and each other through Biblical teaching, relevant events and community building small groups.


High schoolers meet together in the high school room at 9:30 a.m. for Bible Study and discussion.


Wednesday nights during the school year, students get together at T.E.A.M. for Wednesday Night Bible Study.  Starting with a family style dinner at 5:30 p.m., the group then moves into some intense, and in-depth study of the word until 7:00 p.m.

SoulFire is our Youth praise team band and SoulFire practices on selected Wednesday evenings.  One Sunday per month, SoulFire leads worship at our 9:30 a.m.  Contemporary worship service and offers special music at our other worship services.  All high schoolers who like to sing, or play an instrument, or even run our computer/sound system are welcome to join in.

Annual Events
