Worship Services

Join us to connect with other students, play games, and worship God together through music and biblical teaching.  
 
Our 11am Sunday service is in the MSM room! For those not yet comfortable meeting in-person, we will live-stream our 11am worship service on our Calvary MSM YouTube channel. 

Each service we have new students joining us for the first time, so you aren’t alone if you haven’t been to MSM before!  Find any of our leaders wearing an MSM T-shirt or badge to get connected. 

Small Groups

Our small group ministry we call “Tribes” meet on Wednesday evenings from 5:30-7:15pm.  Tribes are returning September 15th on campus!

Winter Camp

Every winter we have the opportunity to take students up to Hume Lake for winter camp, where we partake in a weekend of worship, recreation, and Biblical teaching. Winter camp is a perfect place to get away from normal life for a weekend, enjoy the beautiful campus of Hume lake, and even see snow if you’re lucky!

MSM Fall Function

We are having a middle school costume party on Saturday, October 30th from 6:00-9:00pm at Calvary! The Fall Function is a fun costume party where we will be playing games, eating candy, and giving away prizes.  Dinner will also be provided. This is a perfect date night for parents if you want to attend the 6pm service, grab a late dinner/dessert, and come back to pick up your student.  We do need some parent volunteers to help during the event and you can click here to sign up to serve.

3 things to know:
1. You must preregister each student that would like to join.  Click here to sign up.

2. Costumes must not be scary or gory, and we also ask that students do not bring any weapons (lightsabers are OK)

3. The majority of the night will be held outside.  Near the end of the evening, we will have some games played inside, but at that time students will be in smaller groups rather than all 100+ students in one crammed location. 

Baptisms

MSM Ministry hosts a baptism class the Monday before the next baptism service on Zoom. There will be a short video to watch with your child before the Zoom Class that teaches the fundamentals of the Christian faith and baptism as practiced here at Calvary Westlake. Then children in MSM, along with their parents, will be invited to our Zoom meeting where will discuss questions you might have about baptism!  Once the child, parents, and leaders agree the child has a clear understanding of its meaning and is ready, they are invited to be baptized at the next baptism service. 

Upcoming Baptism Dates

Sat., Oct. 16 – 6pm; Sun., Oct. 17 – 9am & 11am

Sat., Nov. 13 – 6pm; Sun., Nov. 14 – 9am & 11am

For more information on baptism for MSM, contact Connor Johnson at connor.johnson@calvarywestlake.org.

Summer Camp

Calvary MSM Summer Camp is the best week of the year for any incoming 6th, 7th and 8th grade students.  We head to Angeles Crest Christian Camp for an adventure of seeking Jesus together.  Filled with outdoor summer activities, incredible worship, and rooted in biblical teaching, we strive for our students to not only grow in their relationship with God, but also in their friendship with one another.  We always say, if you only join Calvary MSM for one event, make sure it is summer camp!  Come along with us for an experience you’ll never forget!
