Middle School and High 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. The best way to stay updated on what is happening in youth ministry is to download the Wayzata Free app, join our Middle School and/or High School email lists, or download the youth ministry calendar at

You may also want to wear some hiking sandals or other waterproof footwear for the short hikes in and out of the river and/or the shuttle ride.
