Middle School Ministry (MSM)

MSM is our ministry for 6th through 8th graders.

Hope’s vision for MSM (Middle School Ministry) is to REACH THE TRIANGLE AND CHANGE THE WORLD! This is a big vision and can only be accomplished if student ministry leaders and parents join together to love students where they are and encourage them to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ.

Middle School services are available Sunday mornings at all campuses.

Campus Squad Nights

Come hang out at your Campus Squad Night the 3rd Tuesday of the month from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. We encourage middle school students to invite their friends to join them for a chance to connect with others and win some epic prizes! You don’t have to be in a small group or part of our weekend services to come.
