We want your student to be able to celebrate the end of their 5th grade year, and have the opportunity to get a glimpse into Harborside Students Middle School Ministry. Because of this, we are moving Move-Up Sunday to August 2! But that doesn’t mean your student has to miss out on our summer activities. Find all the details about our Sneak Peek opportunities here!

I’m Stephen Law, the pastor over Middle School at Harborside Church. If I haven’t already, I can’t wait to meet you and your new middle school student! I want to “Help students, when it matters most, become world changers.” The three years spent in middle school can be some of the most challenging and confusing times we go through. However, it can also be the most important period in our lives. I use Romans 12:10-12 to set the standard for our Middle School Students.  I know things are different right now but don’t be mistaken, I am so excited to spend time with our new 6th graders, even if it’s just online for now! I look forward to sharing more details with you soon about our ministry!
