Middle School Ministry Update- January 2, 2019

 

Hello from Wayzata Community Church Middle School Ministry

Hi WCCMS Families,


What’s in this newsletter:


Sign-up to bring food for our Students!

We spend a lot of money on food for our Middle Schoolers every year. With your help, we can use that money to instead create more experiences for our students!

MS Sun AM DOUGHNUTS/POP TARTS/CEREAL, JUICE & FRUIT:
Please sign up to provide some sort of breakfast food or juice and fruit for our Middle Schoolers to enjoy on Sunday mornings while we are learning about the different people in the Bible. Please drop them off before 9am on Sunday morning outside of the Middle School Corner (off the West Entrance) OR DROP FOOD OFF THE WEEK BEFORE IF YOU WON’T BE AT 
CHURCH ON SUNDAY!

WEDNESDAY AFTER SCHOOL HEALTHY SNACKS:
Our Middle Schoolers are hungry right after school and appreciate a snack as they spend time with friends and work on homework. Please help provide healthy snacks for our Middle Schoolers after school. I usually provide some sort of variety of the following- fruit, cheese sticks, crackers, carrots with ranch, hummus, chips &
 salsa, microwave popcorn, etc. We have about 30 Middle Schoolers that show up. Please drop it off on the date stated or before!

Have Extra Fun Size Candy around your home? Donate it to WCCMS! We enjoy a fun size treat during our small groups on Wednesday nights! You can drop it off at WCC at the main office or the Middle School Corner with Middle School written on it!

Where’s CBW?

I LOVE SEEING WHAT MIDDLE SCHOOLERS ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT OUTSIDE OF WCC but getting their event schedule is pretty challenging sometimes! I need your help, please let me know about your middle schooler’s events (THINK PLAYS, GAMES, MUSICAL PERFORMANCES, SHOWS, SCHOLAR COMPETITIONS, ETC!)

Here’s how you can let me know about upcoming dates:

  • Put a note in the Where’s CBW Mailbox in the Middle School Corner at WCC  OR
  • Fill out this quick 5 questions request to let me know when and where to go.

Thanks for letting me know!  I try my best to make it to their events when I know about them.
