THE OCEAN IS CALLING (Riptide’s Current Series)

THE OCEAN IS CALLING I see what’s happening here... It’s summertime, the temperature outside is rising and I keep staring at the edge of the water.  I see the line where the sky meets the sea… it calls me. Well come to think of it… The Scriptures...

RIPTIDE — JR. HIGH MINISTRY

For 7th & 8th Grade Students

Riptide is a ministry for 7th & 8th graders here at Journey Community Church. Everything about it is designed specifically with that age group in mind! It is a place for to have fun, make tons of new friends, and see God in ways they may not have before. Sunday morning services, mid-week Life Groups, camps, events and activities are all ways we make that happen in Riptide.

Life Groups

Wednesday Nights during the school year we meet  in smaller groups at Journey Community Church from 6:30 – 8:30 pm. It is a time filled with worship, Bible Study, prayer, and friendships! This is a great opportunity for a 7th and 8th grader to deepen their faith while building community with those in their small group. Also, we serve dinner for only $5.

Sunday Mornings

We have two identical services on Sunday Morning. 9 am and 11 am. We have crazy games, a great student worship team, and times to connect with God! These services are designed for those who are checking out who God is, as well as those who already have a relationship with him.

Camps, Events, and Activities

Our school year is packed with things like camps, services projects, and crazy events like GURLY, BURLY, and DYE WARS. These events create a venue to build friendship, see and hear God in unique ways, help the community around us, and provide an opportunity for 7th & 8th to to put hands and feet to what God is calling all of us to do: Love him and love others.

We believe every 7th & 8th grader was created on purpose for a purpose. God created you exactly how he wanted you to be and that includes putting you in 7th or 8th grade at this very moment! So come, be yourself, and know you are welcomed for being you!
