About Us

Middle School Ministry encompasses 6th through 8th Grade.

Our ultimate goal is to partner with you 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. 
Small Groups: 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 Wednesday programming and have Small Group outings throughout the year as planned and determined by the Small Group Leaders.

Sunday Mornings

9:30 - 10:30 AM

Sunday morning programming focuses on building biblical and theological foundations (discipling the mind).

Summer (June - August): All MSM will meet in the Fieldhouse

School Year (August - May):
On the 1st Sunday of each month, all grades meet in the Fieldhouse for First Serve Sunday. On the remaining Sundays, each grade meets separately in their own classrooms:

  • 6th Grade Girls: SM 272
  • 6th Grade Boys: SM 266
  • 7th Grade Girls: SM 270
  • 7th Grade Boys: SM 262
  • 8th Grade Girls: SM 268
  • 8th Grade Boys: SM 269

Wednesday Nights

6:45 - 8:00 PM (Doors open at 6:15 PM)

Wednesday nights are a fun environment where students can connect with their peers, dive into God's Word, 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, and small groups.

Summer (June): All MSM will meet in the Aux Gym (by Entrance G)

School Year (August - May):
  • 6th Grade: Fireside Room (by Entrance A)
  • 7th/8th Grade: Connection Gym (by Entrance E)


There are multiple unique events that happen throughout the year on or near the NMC campus. Something powerful happens when we get away from everyday life, dive into getting to know each other, and allow God to speak to us.
