Nate has planned some great games, competitions, fun for outside, discussions, and more. This annual event is an awesome time to get to know and have fun with other middle schoolers and our Middle School Leaders. Costs is $25 and includes dinner, breakfast, snacks, lodging and all activities! Friends new to WCC are welcome to join!

PARENTS- Have you volunteered yet?
We have the pleasure of doing ministry with a lot of awesome Middle Schoolers at Wayzata Community Church and we need YOU to help make this another successful year! Please sign up to help provide snacks, doughnuts, fruit or juice or volunteer to be a part of our time together on Sunday to learn a little about Jesus’ miracles and get to know our awesome kids! No prep work is necessary!
If you have a question, please don’t hesitate to email Christa.
What brings your child joy? What can we do to help them enjoy WCCMS?
These are a few of the questions that we ask on our registration form because we want to make Middle School Ministry the best experience we can for your Middle Schooler. Please share a little info about your Middle Schooler with us. I promise it’s worth the time it takes to fill it out for a few reasons:
- We get to know your Middle Schooler a little better
- You get to stay connected with these super fun newsletters (& get the quick links to register for events!)
- Help us plan for a great year!
- It’s FREE! That’s right! We think registering them and their involvement in Sundays and Wednesdays should just be part of being a “WCC kid!”
Last weeks Happenings:
We had some great discussions about relationships with friends and what qualities we look for in friendships. Some groups also discussed relationships with dating.
We stayed in worship to enjoy Super Bowl of Soul.

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!)

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