Back by popular demand! Last Summer was our first Summer of Summer Fun with MS Leaders and it was a BLAST! Middle School Leaders will offer different fun activities to do with a group of MSers to get to know different MSers. There will be a limit to how many Middle Schoolers can sign up. When it’s full, it’s full. We will post different events on June 1, July 1 & August 1 for each month through an email and social media. Have fun as a group & enjoy meeting some new friends & spending time with other leaders! Depending on the activity, there might be a fee or you might be asked to bring something to share with the group! Last years events included biking and ice cream, going to a Ninja Warrior Course, Backyard BBQ  with Lawn Games, Hiking at Baker Park, Mini Golf, Swimming at Long Lake Beach, and going to a Twins Game!

REGISTRATION OPENS IN MAY!

Angst Documentary Screening & Anxiety Discussion

Anyone 11 years old & older is invited to join us on Wednesday, February 27 during block 3 (6:30-8pm) for the screening of Angst, a documentary about anxiety. Following the screening, we will have a discussion about anxiety, facilitated by licensed therapists. 

Any Adults & Middle School or High School Students are welcome to join us for this event!


Volunteer to provide 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!

    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.
