What we’re doing
during COVID-19 outbreak.

There will be no gatherings on the Harborside Church campus until further notice.
Leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus: the “what” hasn’t changed, but the “how” has.

Where Every Student Belongs

At Harborside Students, we believe that every student belongs. We offer weekly opportunities for students to connect their faith with their friends, and we believe every student has the potential to be a leader that will change the world.

When we Meet

Virtual Programming


During this time of social distancing, we want to help middle school students stay connected to each other and Harborside. Our Middle School students are gathering together online through a safe and free app/service called Discord.

This is going to be our central area of connection and community for our students during this time. Our students and leaders will plan to meet 4 times a week to talk, read scripture, pray, and just hang out in this “socially distant” time. 

Sundays @ 11:00am

Mondays @ 3:00pm

Wednesdays @ 7:00pm

Fridays @ 7:00pm

STEP ONE: Download Discord to your device

STEP TWO: Join the Harborside Middle School Online Community

What to do if your student isn’t already connected to a group:  

We will have a 6:30PM Welcome digital lobby on Wednesday Evening!

Andrew will be hosting this Zoom lobby where he will meet your students, get to know them a little, and then connect them to a Virtual Connect Group that fits them best.

The Movement

The Movement is a high school only event designed to guide students to an encounter with Jesus. The vision for these events is to create a space designed for students to be free of depression, suicide, pressure and lead them to become part of our family. 

Middle School Connect Groups

Middle School Connect Groups


Our connect groups allow students to connect with students their age in a deeper study of God’s word and principles. Our vision is to structure group times that work for students and leaders to connect throughout the week so that students of various levels of faith find the opportunity to grow closer to God and have an active faith!
