The MSM of FBC Naples exists to REACH non-believing students, to CONNECT them with other Christians, to help them GROW in their faith, and challenge the growing to DISCOVER their ministry and HONOR God with their lives.

Information about MSM

Weekend BLG’s (Saturday @ 7:30pm and Sunday @ 9:30am) in FL138
Bible and Life Groups (BLG’s) are where we make our large ministry feel small. These are groups of 6-8 students, same gender and grade, with at least 1 caring adult. During this time students are really able to CONNECT with other students, with caring adults, and with God. We help students take what they are learning and apply it to their everyday life.

MSMworship (Wednesday @ 6:30pm – 8:00pm) in the Student Center 
Our Middle School worship service on Wednesday night is designed specifically for middle school students to HONOR Christ with friends, music, fun games, and a relevant Biblical message. This is a great opportunity to bring friends to hear a message from God’s Word. The gym and café are opened before the event.

@ Home (H.A.B.I.T.S.)
We want all of our students to develop Godly habits that will last them a lifetime. We are often able to measure a student’s spiritual growth by the HABITS they develop. We have these H.A.B.I.T.S. resources in the student ministry area. Please pick them up and use them to GROW in your walk with Christ.

Missions Teams (Meet during weekend BLG) During the Spring Semester in FL138 
We want every one of our middle school students to DISCOVER their Spiritual gifts and give them opportunities to serve God in the Church, locally, stateside, and globally. We use these Sunday Nights to teach our choir, train for our mission trips, and learn to share our faith. There will be multiple opportunities to sign up to serve within our church body, help out the local community, go on a stateside mission trip, or even a family mission trip internationally.

Outreach Events
As a middle school ministry we want to REACH as many middle school students in the SW Florida area as possible. We will do many events throughout with the purpose of having the middle school students who attend FBCN invite students who do not attend church. These events include but are not limited to MSMayhem and MSM Camp.

Student Camp
Camp is our biggest and most favorite week of the year. We get to take a week to get away and focus on our relationship with God, build deeper and more intentional friendships, and learn more about what it means to Pursue Christ every day. And of course there's lake activities, team competitions, and late night snack breaks also, so really it's just an all around great week and we want you to come. Early Registration will open in late Spring, so keep an eye out!
