Student Ministry

In Student Ministry, we seek to provide students the opportunity to take their next right steps towards God. This ministry is designed to provide a forum for students to connect and serve with one another, with leaders, and with God.

Currently, our Middle School and High Schools ministries are combined, meeting on Sunday evenings from 6:00 - 8:00 pm. Current COVID guidelines require that masks be worn during Student Ministry meetings.

Middle School Ministry

Middle School Ministry is designed to help our grade 6-8 students, who are in a season of great change and growth. As they face many challenges our goal is to walk alongside of them as they begin to mature and learn to live and function in healthy community with peers and adults.

Each week students hear relevant biblical teaching, experience a fun, high energy environment, and end the evening in gender-specific small groups. Here they look at scripture, ask questions, and build lasting relationships with their peers and assigned adult leader.

High School Ministry 

In the High School Ministry, students in grades 9 – 12 learn to do life together in the context of a Christ-centered community. We seek to develop students' faith by connecting them to serving, both in and through the church. Our hope is for students to graduate with a meaningful connection to the church at large and a strong faith that will last a lifetime.

Each week students hear relevant biblical teaching, experience a fun, high energy environment, and end the evening in gender-specific small groups. Here they look at scripture, ask questions and build lasting relationships with their peers and assigned adult leader.

WEFC Student Ministries will be having Rent-A-Teen fundraisers on the dates shown above.  Church families, relatives, and friends can "rent" a teens to help with special tasks (raking leaves, house cleaning, etc.) in exchange for a donation towards Challenge.  All monies raised on this date will be divided evenly among the students who participate.

  • If you have a student who is going to Challenge, this is a fantastic opportunity to raise funds towards the trip.
  • If you have a project you'd like to see completed around the house, this is a great opportunity to support our youth, get that project done! You'll also be blessed as you get know a few of our students along the way (they're great, really)! 
  • If you'd like to rent a few teens on any of the above dates, please contact Mike Schuberth.
  • If you have a project to be done but none of the scheduled dates are good for you, contact us and we'll try to accommodate you.
