Middle School Wild Wednesdays - Wednesdays, 7:00 - 8:30PM | Walled Lake Campus (unless otherwise specified)

  • Join us for crazy games, fellowship, friends, devotion, and snack.
  • Regular Wild Wednesdays are paused for the summer, but we will have some special events during the summer months, including the upcoming events:
    • Middle School Water Wars Take 2 - Wednesday August 11 Bring a squirt gun that can be filled from a pool.  Prepare to get soaked from head to toe.  We will meet on the front lawn of the HOME.
    • Middle School Food Olympics, Wednesday August 18 from 7-8:30 on the front lawn of the HOME.  You will be covered from head to toe with every gross and extremely messy food combination that can come from Mr. Welte’s mind.  Paretns will want to brind towels, garbage bags, tarps for the ride home to protect the cars interior.  This event is not for those who are faint at heart.
