* These events require the youth to be active - this is defined by any 9th – 12th grader who participates in at least half of the monthly events offered for youth at John Wesley.  Most months that would be at least 4 John Wesley Events.  These events include Sunday School and Sunday Night High School Youth.

** This event requires youth to be active in the youth ministry and music ministry at John Wesley.  They must attend practices on regular bases throughout the year and participate in worship when they play, as well as fill the roles of active youth at John Wesley.

Scholarships are available for most of these events.  In order to receive a scholarship you must register by the registration deadline and you must fill out a scholarship application.  Also you must be aware that if your child does not attend the event and the church loses money you will be responsible for paying back the amount.
