Young Adult and College Student Ministry

Are you a student attending Messiah College? Are you looking to attend a Brethren in Christ Church U.S. church near the school? We’d love you to come worship with us at Grantham Church.

The church is located right on the campus of Messiah College. We offer a later Sunday morning service, at 10:30 a.m., perfect for college students who like to sleep in!

Grantham Church has a special connection to Messiah College. Many of our members attended school there, work there, or retired from there. We welcome speakers at our church who know of Messiah’s great reputation for rigorous academics and picturesque scenery. Students from Messiah join us on our worship teams and softball squads. They’re an integral part of our community.

A Home Away From Home

Many students come to Messiah from BIC churches in their hometown. They often want a local church to attend until they return home at the end of the semester or when they graduate.

Grantham is happy to fill that gap. We promise:

  • Convenience: Our church is just steps away from the Eisenhower Campus Center. Many Messiah students do not have cars. You can easily walk to our services.
  • Fellowship: Meet other students from Messiah, who will offer you the same warmth we share with all of those who walk through our doors.
  • Service: There are opportunities for you to get involved and contribute to the ministry of Grantham Church. We encourage you to join us in furthering our mission and vision.
  • Home-cooked meals: Missing your family’s home-cooking? We have you covered. Come to our Eat & Run events on Wednesday nights, where we offer free meals to Messiah students.

Moms and Dads Welcome

We know many Messiah College parents also need a place to worship on Sundays when they come to visit their kids. We welcome you as well. Contact us before your visit, and we’ll provide a schedule of upcoming activities. We look forward to sharing joyful worship with you!
