6th – 8th Graders

Be you. Belong. Be Loved. Believe.

While middle schoolers might be notorious for being a bit quirky, we believe that they are simply AWESOME! They are at a very key time in their development where they can begin to go a bit deeper and make faith decisions of their own. We count it a privilege to walk alongside them during these years of questions and change.
We’ve got an incredible team of leaders who genuinely love middle schoolers and deeply love Jesus. We place a high emphasis on relationships built through weekly gatherings, worship, bible study, fun activities, small groups, and special events. We desire to create an atmosphere where students can belong, be themselves, and encounter the transforming love of Jesus.

Oh… And we love to play dodgeball.

Participation Waivers: Each new school year we ask the parents of all MSM students submit an updated waiver.

The link below will take you to the waiver for the 2023-24 ministry year. If you haven’t filled it out yet, we would really appreciate it if you took a minute to fill it out. If you have any questions, please ask. Thank you.
