M Squad is held in July each summer. The M Squad is a holistic opportunity of real growth for middle school students with high school students as team leaders. The St. Stephen’s Youth Ministry (SSYM) high school teens along with staff and adult volunteers from the parish will be in charge of running and supervising this dynamic kick-off. Following the retreat, the M Squad participants will bring their training to real-life practice in a five-day, Vacation Bible School (VBS) day-camp style approach to be held July 27-31, 2020 .
Each day of VBS, M Squad teams will begin work serving our pre-school and elementary children. In the morning, the M Squad will lead a group of 5-7 children through the VBS activities followed by lunch which is provided every day. On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday the M Squad participants will have time for small group reflection, leadership development, powerful prayer experiences, and fun activities until 4:00 p.m. On Tuesday and Thursday afternoon they will have a short debriefing period before going home at 2:00 p.m. to rest up.
