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

High School Upcoming Events
DAY CANOE TRIP - JULY 28
DAY EVENT: CANOE TRIP (9th-12th) We’ll head up to Taylor’s Falls to check out Franconia Sculpture Park and eat lunch before jumping in canoes and floating down the St. Croix River! Join us on Friday, July 28, 9am-4:30pm. This trip will be a lot of fun, and the river is tame enough that even novice canoeists can do it! Things you’ll want to be sure to bring: $15 to pay for you to go, a sack lunch to eat, sunscreen, a swimsuit because you’re gonna get soaked (change of clothes for the ride back?), and a friend of course because they’ll have a blast!
MIRACLE LEAGUE - Serving on August 14 and 21
MIRACLE LEAGUE (9th-12th): 2 nights this summer we’ll be volunteering with the East Metro Miracle League! EMML is a baseball league for kids with special needs and it looks like a super fun way to serve! On Miracle League nights we’ll help our buddies play the game and cheer them on! It’s going to be great! Miracle Field is part of the Healtheast/Bielenberg Sports Center. It is located in the black field cluster, off of Hargis Road. Plan to meet us there! Event runs 5:45pm to approximately 8pm on Monday August 14 and 21. Sign up to let us know if you're coming. Contact: Patrick Brewer.
