Riptide — Junior 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. Here are a couple of ways that happens in Riptide:
#1 Small 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 $4.
#2 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.
#3 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!

Let’s face it. We overcomplicate things. We have a way of making things more difficult than they need to be. Too many rules, too much explanation. When it comes to following Jesus… to connecting with God, most people cannot tell you clearly how this whole thing works. However, God made connection with him Simple. Not some lofty, far off, difficult thing. So let’s put an end to the over complications?
Join us as we start simple.
August 24 Start Simple. – Jesus is here. Now.
August 31 Start Simple. – Relationship.
September 7 Start Simple. – Start with Those Around You.
September 14 Start Simple. – Simple Prayers.
September 21 Start Simple. – You Already Know How to Read.
