Junior High is a unique time where many important life decisions are made. It is a very influential age where these decisions can affect their spiritual lives in significant ways. This ministry is dedicated to help with the transition of childhood to teenager-dom. A transition we hope and pray will lead to a stronger faith and a greater love for God.
About our Jr High directors: Michael & Morgan Williams have a love for Jesus Christ & a passion for Jr High kids. They have a desire to see them come to know Christ, love Him supremely, and serve Him unreservedly.

They believe that the Word of God has direction for their lives and solutions for their struggles.
Sunday School - Jr. High
MSM Sunday school allows students to interact and learn the basic truths of Scripture in a relaxed classroom environment.
While it is a Sunday School format of teaching and learning, the student has the opportunity to ask questions and discover how God’s Word is practical for everyday life.
Current Series: Basic Theology and Philippians
Description: The goal of this series is two-fold. Our desire is always to give students the tools they need to go out into the world and share the Gospel with others and to grow in their walk with the Lord. We will provide the students 7 key theological truths that will provide them with opportunities to make a difference in the world. We will share with them from Philippians how to serve others, teach them out to meet the spiritual needs of others, while remaining grounded in their own faith by cultivating strong friendships with other believers.

Description: Culture is something you cannot avoid, and we are given an opportunity to respond. The things we watch, listen to, and what our friends our saying…they can either influence us, or we can be an influence. Christ said we need to a light in this world, and this series will help us understand a little more about this world and how we should respond
Sunday Night Live - Combined Jr. High & High School
Sunday Night Live is a time where our purpose can be accomplished. Starting a relationship with God can happen when inviting friends to the play, praise, and pray night. This is a night when we have a fun activity, sing and praise God with our praise band, and pray together. Also, strengthening your relationship with God happens in our Bible study time. Lastly, service to God and others happens during our service project nights that include local and international projects.
Sunday Night Live begins at 6pm but teens are encouraged to come early to hang out and play games. Sunday Night Live is located in a separate building behind the church facility. It is the big beige building... you can't miss it.
*Note: During the winter months, the group will meet INSIDE the church building.
Current Series: Relationship Status
Description: After learning how to deal with the stresses of life, how do we help our friends going through difficult times? What about our relationships with our family, how do we not go crazy with our siblings and how we need to have a higher goal than just to “get along” with our parents? These are the issues and questions we will tackle in this series.
