A WHEATY is a high school (grade 9-12) student chosen to attend the Middle School Gathering as a peer minister to the Middle School youth. Along with modeling Christian behavior at the gathering sessions (such as singing and dancing to Peder Eide!) a WHEATY walks along with someone who is feeling left out, listens to someone going through a hard time, or simply “WHEATing” someone sitting off by themselves. Each congregation may bring up to two WHEATYs with them to the Middle School Gathering.
This is a great opportunity to be a leader, to learn new skills, to help others, and it looks great on college applications. Ask your Pastor or Youth Director for more details on the Gathering and when your deadline is for signing up.
