Youth Overview

Youth and Young Adult Ministries

The youth ministry program provides opportunities for all youth in grades 6–12 and college-age students. There are many options throughout the week for middle school youth (entering grades 6–8) and high school youth (grades 9–12) along with special fellowship and service events. There is something for everyone and all are welcome!

Messiah also connects with college-age students, whether they are away at school or studying here in Vancouver. If you fall into this category, please let us know your address. You never know when a surprise might end up in your mailbox!

The confirmation program is for students entering grades 6–8 (students who are entering 9th grade, but not yet confirmed will participate in high school activities). If you are in grades 6–8 and are not part of the confirmation program, but would like to be, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

All students (whether enrolled in confirmation or not) are welcome at all activities and classes. Check the church calendar for upcoming fun activities. Scholarships are always available when needed to offset the cost of any youth event. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Many things are happening at Messiah. Bring a friend. There is something for everyone!

Permission Slips and Safety

Don′t forget your child needs a current Permission and Release Form for participation in any youth activities. Please fill out the form and return it to the church office. It is important that Messiah has this information on all young people before they can participate in programs. This is for their health and safety.

The safety of Messiah′s children is important to us. Washington State background checks on all people working with children and youth are required. These are updated every two years. Forms are available in the church office or can be downloaded and printed from this website by scrolling to the bottom of the home page to Media and clicking on Forms.
