High School Ministry
Are you a high schooler? Do you have a high schooler? Either way, we're glad you're here! We love high schoolers and hope you'll check out one of our ministries designed just for you! Students in grades 9 - 12 are invited to join us as we study the Bible, enjoy game nights, serve, build relationships and connections, and participate in small groups!
Parents of High Schoolers
We want to partner with you! Here are a few ways to stay connected.
Email Us: ( / ) Any important info about your young person that will help us care for him/her! (Things we like to know: any special needs, life changes/concerns, exciting stuff, and the hard stuff.)
Parent Blog: There are book reviews, announcements, and family faith ideas.
Small Group Leaders: Get to know your young person's small group leader, invite them to games/plays/competitions. Invite them out for coffee/dinner. They are a cheerleader for you as well as your young person!
WLCYOUTH Facebook Page: Liking our Facebook page is another great way to get updates on things happening. WLCYouth Facebook Page
