Middle School

In Calvary Middle School Ministry, we’re focused on helping students in grades 6–8 "live on mission." This means equipping students to live as authentic followers of Jesus Christ and impact the world by making Christ known – in their neighborhoods, school, community, and beyond.

Come grow with us! Invite friends to any of our programs or events. Connect and check out our latest pics on Facebook.
