MSM Small Group Teaching Series May 2019

Whether you’re the parent of a sixth, seventh or eighth grader, you and your student are in a phase full of transition and transformation! In MSM, we recognize that this is a pivotal point in your student’s journey, and it’s our desire to keep partnering with you to help some of these transitions take place as smoothly as possible.

During the middle school phase, what’s repeated is what’s remembered. This is why MSM provides an annual series on every parent’s favorite topic…dating, sexuality and relationships. This year, we’re calling it Great Expectations. The goal of this series is to empower students to navigate relationships, attraction and sex with a foundation in God’s Word.

What We’re Learning:

Great expectations is a four-week series about navigating through dating, sex and sexuality in an age-appropriate and God-focused way. We want you to fully be aware of everything we are talking about and encourage you to have these conversations at home. Below are teaching videos, lesson guides, and extra resources for you.

    Thank you so much for the Great Expectations series and for giving parents a heads-up about it including the videos and discussion guides. This has been a great way for me to start age-appropriate discussions with my 6th grader.
