youth ministry

Due to the current health situation, we have suspended all on-site programming

and church events until further notice. 

Click here for the most current information about what we are doing as a church. 

Below you will find information on our usual programming throughout the year.


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

Summer youth group

June 14 | Summer Youth Group Kick-Off! *NEW DATE 

We are postponing our kick-off of summer youth group by a week to June 14. We were hoping to start summer youth group in person, but because of some of the safety challenges and logistical issues of meeting in person currently, we will be holding youth group online at least through the end of June. We are excited for when we can gather together in person, but know that the "church" is not limited to a place or building. So we hope to still find community and grow deeper in our faith with each other even if it means staying online for a while longer.

We are still thinking through what summer youth group will look like so stay tuned for more details in the next couple of weeks.

summer schedule

As we do not know what the coming months will look like, all church registration for future events (including summer missions trips) are being put on hold. We hope things will be able to happen as planned, but for now we are pausing any registration links.
