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!

The Rescue

We were designed to always live life beside God … but somewhere along the road, things got messed up. We started believing the lie that we could live our lives separate from God, but God knew this wouldn’t work.

You see, despite everything that went wrong, God promised that he would never leave his children. And even though his children would forget him, and run from him, deep in their hearts, they would always miss him and always long for him – like lost children yearning for their home.

He left us a bunch of stories in something called “The Bible.” It’s an adventure story about a young Hero who comes from a far country to win back his lost treasure. It’s a love story about a brave Prince who leaves his palace, his throne – everything – to rescue the one he loves. Every story whispers his name. He’s the missing piece to the most difficult puzzle. The best part is, this story is all true!

It tells of a God who loves his children so much, that he would do anything to rescue them. And it’s that same God who says, “I love you and I’m coming back for you!”

Sunday Morning Cartoons

We all remember what it was like. The feeling of waking up early, getting a bowl of cereal, spending about 20 minutes looking for the remote, grabbing a blanket, sitting on the ground and looking up towards the television. You would hear the theme song, followed by the phrase, “Last time on….” As a kid it seemed there wasn’t a better way to start off your day.

So grab your footy pajamas and your sippy cups and get ready… for Sunday Morning Cartoons!
