current service opportunities

+ Serving in Schools

We are invited to partner with Wayzata and Orono Schools to serve the West Metro. Volunteers are needed immediately to serve in local elementary school literacy programs. Help a child learn to love to read; there is no teaching involved. Other opportunities to serve are available.

+ Devotions for Seniors

Cherrywood Point of Minnetonka (a senior living community) has asked for volunteers to take turns leading devotional times on Tuesdays and/or Thursdays from 11:15 am-12:00 pm in the community room at their new building near Ridgedale Mall.  Volunteers can share from God’s Word, facilitate discussion and/or lead music and prayer. The residents asked for this time and Wayzata Free was recommended to the Life Enrichment Director at the community.

+ LEMA provides assistance to the law enforcement community and others and to surviving family members of peace officers who have given their lives in the line of duty. As a church we want to serve alongside our community and generously give back to our police officers who selflessly serve us. Our goal is to raise $25,000 for LEMA.
+ The Serve 5K Run/Walk is chip timed and all paid participants (who register by June 1) are guaranteed an official race t­-shirt. This event also features a Kids Fun Run. Kids (7 and younger) have the opportunity to run alongside local law enforcement officers and receive a participation prize.

+ Strollers welcome; NO in-line skates or dogs permitted. Race is run rain or shine. Canceled only for extreme weather.


5K Run/Walk (by 5/14) - $25
5K Run/Walk (5/15-6/22) - $35
