Spring Break Crossroads Plans

Because we have so many different Spring Breaks with having Middle Schoolers from 20 different Middle Schools (WOW!), we mix things up for the Wednesday during most schools Spring Breaks- March 27 & April 3. So, if you are around for Spring Break, join us for a different kind of Crossroads with some surprises as we enjoy spring break together! We will also still have After School time starting at 4pm these weeks! 


Middle School Retreat- 4/12-4/14

THE SPRING RETREAT IS FINALLY HERE! This April comes the event you’ve been waiting for all year… THE MIDDLE SCHOOL RETREAT! You don’t want to miss out on this weekend! IT’S LIKE A WEEKEND OF SUMMER CAMP DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR!

Join Christa, Brady & the Middle School Leaders for a super fun weekend with games, friends, small groups, free time & more! All activities, discussions and small groups are planned by WCCMS while we enjoy the space that we rent from Camp Ihduhapi. On Friday, April 12, Retreat check-in begins at 6pm at WCC’s West Entrance, by the Gym. Sunday, April 14, we will return by noon. Please eat dinner before arriving!

The cost for the weekend is $130 and includes 2 nights stay at Camp Ihduhapi, 4 meals & plenty of snacks, transportation by professional bus drivers, games, all activities, & so much fun! Scholarships are available. For more information about scholarships, please email WCC MS Director, Christa Workmon at cworkmon@www.wayzatacommunitychurch.org

If your student has been on a past retreat (or overnights!) with WCC, you know that we like to have a lot of fun, build community within our Middle School Ministry and have some beautiful faithful conversations about personal growth in life & faith, that is geared towards this specific development phase. Invite a friend and register online now!

    The Last Few Weeks

      SUNDAY, MARCH 17
      • We enjoyed worship with our families to experience the orchestra, choirs and special Celtic focus.
      WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20
      • Before moving into Spring Break weeks, we talked about wise choices with technology and how our choices affect others. We talked about how technology can be positive or negative based on how we use it. 
      SUNDAY, MARCH 24
      • We had a great conversation about Thomas and learning that Jesus didn’t get mad at him even though he had doubt and that Jesus met him where he was at in his faith and life. We talked about how God knows just what we each need and will meet us where we are at in our lives and faith. 
      WEDNESDAY, MARCH 27
      • We enjoyed having a little fun with the beautiful weather and a smaller group for Spring Break… we walked to get ice cream in downtown Wayzata!

      Where’s CBW?

      I LOVE SEEING WHAT MIDDLE SCHOOLERS ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT OUTSIDE OF WCC but getting their event schedule is pretty challenging sometimes! I need your help, please let me know about your middle schooler’s events (THINK PLAYS, GAMES, MUSICAL PERFORMANCES, SHOWS, SCHOLAR COMPETITIONS, ETC!)

      Here’s how you can let me know about upcoming dates:

      • Put a note in the Where’s CBW Mailbox in the Middle School Corner at WCC  OR
      • Fill out this quick 5 questions request to let me know when and where to go.

      Thanks for letting me know!  I try my best to make it to their events when I know about them.
