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!

This Is My Story.  –Our Current Weekend Series  …up to Easter
Everybody has a story… However, nobody has the same story.  There are certain things in life that we experience that seem to define us.  Differentiate us from others.  There are certain things that changed the way we think… Certain things that changed the way we act.  Key moments in our lives that we would claim as a part of Our Story.  But what would happen if My Story affected Your Story… If Your Story shaped My Story… and If God’s Story became Our Story.

Upgrade (Promotion Sunday).  –August 17th
Just a heads up that this weekend we will be promoting students to their next grade/ ministry space.  Pretty bittersweet.

I hope that this is helpful.
Looking forward to this season!

Come Visit Whoville!!!

Whoville

…And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice-cold in the snow,

Stood puzzling and puzzling: “How could it be so?

It came without ribbons! It came without tags!
”

It came without packages, boxes or bags!”

And he puzzled three hours, `till his puzzler was sore.

Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before!

“Maybe Christmas,” he thought, “doesn’t come from a store.

“Maybe Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!”

This Christmas season, we will join the Whobilation as we understand that Maybe Christmas… perhaps… means a little bit more!”

Dec 1 Whoville- “The Grinch’s Small Heart Grew Three Sizes that Day”

Dec 8 Whoville- “Every Who Down in Whoville”

Dec 15 Whoville- “And the Whos would start Singing” – Pause Worship Experience

Dec 22 Whoville- It’s Practically Hear!” – Riptide Christmas Party

WinterCamp 2014 -Dead Man Walking

             DEAD MAN WALKING

Life, fairly often can feel boring, mundane, repetitive…  Leaving us at times thinking, “there has to be more than this.”  We even intentionally try and do things that feel adventurous or exciting or even dangerous, just to feel alive.  And every now and again, we stumble upon something that makes us say, “This… is truly living!”

Join us for a weekend away as we realize that Jesus is calling us back to life.  And the life that he is calling us into is anything but boring, mundane, and repetitive.

This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It’s adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike “What’s next, Papa?”   Romans. 8:15 MSG

Where: Indian Hills Camp

When: January 10th-12th 2014 (Friday-Sunday)
