High School


High School is a great time of discovery, discovery of who you are and who God created you to be! Our desire is to provide a place where students can be authentic, encouraged and challenged in their faith.

UPCOMING

IMMERSE Small Group | 6:30 pm

IMMERSE is a small group designed for High School students that want to dig deeper into the topics being taught during Wayzata's Sunday morning worship service. We want to come alongside High School students to help them engage in the adult service as they become adults themselves. This small group will also have an opportunity for creative components we incorporate throughout the year.  


Winter Camp | OVERFLOW | February 16-19 | $145

Guest Speaker Greg Speck (gregspeck.com) | click here to register

What you put in is what you get out. Many times when we are tired or cranky we forget that we can control ourselves if we put more attention into what goes into our body and mind. Spiritually the same is true. Philippians 1:9 reads, "I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding (NLT)." But how do we get to OVERFLOW? Come hear Greg Speck (nationally known youth speaker) share with humor and wit how we can go from empty to OVERFLOW.


Haiti Mission Trip | June 17-23

This summer the high school group will be going to Haiti for their Missions Trip. The team is full but please be in prayer for our students and leaders going and stay tuned for ways to partner with them in fundraising opportunities leading up to the trip.


AWOL | July 15-20

AWOL (A Work of Love) is our middle school summer missions experience to Maple Hill Estates mobile home community in Corcoran, MN. For this week to happen, we rely on the leadership of key high school student leaders. This is a week that we spend sleeping in campers, loving on kids in the community, putting on a VBS and generally helping the community of Maple Hill Estates. There is no cost for High School student leaders. Current 9th grade students: you are welcome to apply but will only be accepted if we have a second site this year. AWOL training day is MANDATORY and is Monday, July 9th. Click here to register. 




PROGRAMMING

Sunday Mornings

We want High School students to be incorporated in the regular worship service at Wayzata Free as they become adults by serving and attending worship. Students can serve in Club Corps (2nd hour), sit in the student section in worship (2nd hour), join their family or serve elsewhere across church. If you have any questions or want more information on where you can serve on a Sunday morning, contact Bekah Elgard at bekah.elgard@wayzatafree.org.


Donuts | 10:15 am | C-103

Every Sunday the students in 6th-12th grades are welcomed to C-103 starting at 10:15 am for donuts. This is a time between services for us to connect, laugh and enjoy being together before students head off to serve or attend the service together in the student section.


Sunday Nights

Youth Group | 6:30-8:30 pm | Fellowship Hall

High School Youth Group is a time where we focus on community building through games, worship and teaching with an emphasis on small groups. Bekah and a team of excellent volunteer leaders love to build relationships with high school students and invest in their lives.

Current Series | Let's Talk About Sex

Let's Talk About Sex. Join us during youth group on Sunday nights, January 21-March 11, for our series that will parallel the series the rest of the church is doing on sex. During this series, we will be covering topics such as sexuality and spirituality, being uniquely created, sexual identity, purity, God's grace and redemption and singleness.
