Middle School Ministry
Middle School Ministry
Middle School Ministry encompasses 6th through 8th Grade. Our ultimate goal is to partner with parents to see students own their own faith in Jesus (move from religion to relationship) and allow that faith to impact the world around them (move from relationship to spiritual reproducers). This happens in large, medium, small, and individual opportunities through programs, trips and events.
These are the weekly opportunities we offer
Fall- Spring Offerings:
Every Sunday, our 6th-8th grade students connect with one another and our incredible team of staff and table leaders, building friendships as well as building a biblical and theological foundation of truth (ministry to the HEAD by discipling the mind). During the school year each grade meets separately from 9:30-10:30 a.m. yet covers the same material through up-front teaching and small group table discussion.
9:30-10:30 a.m. every Sunday
Wednesday Nights are designed to create a fun environment where students can connect with their peers, dive into the Word of God and be challenged by a caring adult to take next steps in their walk with Christ! These nights include elements of fun, games, worship, Biblical teaching, small groups and so much more. 6th grade will run separately for the most part throughout the fall. Come December, 6th-8th grade will be all together through the end of the school year.
The purpose is to connect students in meaningful relationships with a peers and a caring adult (ministry by linking HANDS with others).
Groups range in size from 5-12 and are split by grade and gender. They meet weekly inside the Wednesday programming and has Small Group outings throughout the year as planned and determined by the Small Group Leaders.
The Winter/Spring Calendar is available: MSM Winter/Spring Calendar 2016
Sunday summer programming begins June 4 and will look a little different than the school year. Be sure to check out where grades are meeting below.
6th Grade: SM 264
7th/8th Grade: Aux Gym
Wednesday summer programming begins June 7. We are spending the summer hanging out, eating delicious food, playing awesome outdoor games and talking about an important topic. Join us as we tackle different American idols that distract us from pursuing God wholeheartedly. For the summer we will meet in the Auxiliary Gym from 6:45-8 p.m. Doors open at 6:15 p.m.
There are multiple unique events that happen throughout the year on or near the NMC campus. These include but aren’t limited to:
- Fanning the Flame: March 5-8
- Guys’ Night Out: March 17
- Girls’ Day: March 18

Something powerful happens when we get away from everyday life, dive into getting to know each other, and allow God to speak to us. There are three major trips we take in Middle School Ministry.
- Summer Camp: July 10-13
- SOS (Summer of Service): June 29-July 2
