PARENTS WE NEED YOU!
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.
Have you told us about your kids yet?
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:
Our 7th & 8th Graders enjoyed our third evening of hearing from Pastor Lindy as she shared a little about boundaries and what they mean in the life of a middle schooler. We focused on boundaries when it comes to our friendships and dating.
Our 6th Graders along with their parents gathered for Milestones to talk through the truths of Middle School.
We talked about Jesus calming the storm and how we are not promised that there won’t be storms in our lives when we follow Jesus, but he will always be there for us.

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