Middle School

Middle school can be a great time of life. Especially when fun is combined with living for Christ. Our goal is to help students become followers of Christ, resulting in changed lives.

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.

AWOL | July 15-20

AWOL (A Work Of Love) is our summer missions experience at Maple Hill Estates, a mobile home community in Corcoran, MN. Each year we live on site in campers and put on a morning VBS, spend the afternoon playing with kids from the community and then in the evenings we head off site with the older kids from the community for a fun event as a part of our ESCAPE program of peer outreach. AWOL training day is MANDATORY and is MONDAY, July 9th. Students must apply to be a part of this team. Click here to register. 


Sunday Mornings

The Foundry class | 9:00 am | C-103

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.

Current series | Let's Talk About Sex

Let's Talk About Sex. For two weeks (February 11, 25) middle school will be doing a parallel study with the rest of the church on sex. On February 11th we will be talking about how God has created us as unique creatures. As guys and girls God created us in His image and we need to live that out in all that we do. So what does that look like in today's day and age? How do we function as girls and guys uniquely created? On February 25th we will be talking about sexuality and relationships. What is God's design for sex and intimacy and how do we live today with that in mind? Have a specific question about sex you want to ask? Click here to fill out an anonymous form and Bruce will do his best to get to address it. 

Wednesday Nights

wednesdays@wayzata offer a lot of programming options starting with a meal together. We offer adult classes, kid's classes, youth worship rehearsal, IMMERSE (a small group designed for High School students) and more! Middle School students have the opportunity to serve in many of these areas (especially kid's ministry) and can contact Bruce at bruce.droogsma@wayzatafree.org for more information.
