WHAT IS MSM

DSC00188.jpg

MSM helps middle school students begin and grow a relationship with Jesus Christ and deepen their Catholic faith in a fun, engaging environment. We exist to help young people become devoted, holy followers of Jesus. Through supportive community, great speakers, significant prayer experiences, and small group interaction, MSM youth will gain a better understanding of who they are as Catholic Christians and know that they truly belong. Our hope is that the experiences they have and the lessons they learn will stay with them throughout middle school, into high school and beyond!

WHAT WE OFFER

SUNDAY NIGHTS 5:45pm-7:30pm in The Cenacle

Sunday Night MSM is our primary ministry night!  It is unique in that we devote the majority of our time and energy to the small group experience.  We believe strongly that middle schoolers are ready to be out of the classroom and begin sharing their lived faith experience in a discussion style format.  Groups are facilitated by young adults and parents who have a passion for young people and a desire to pass on the Catholic faith.  In order to keep it fun and engaging, we provide a variety of formats throughout the semester.  Some nights we will have a presentation with group discussions, while other nights will focus on Catholic tradition and devotionals.  This year we are also introducing our FUSION nights!  A night (once a month) where middle schoolers and their friends enjoy a night of crazy fun.
