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.
Wednesdays from 6:30 – 8:30pm
9 AM + 11 AM
Camps, Events and Activities
We have events, retreats and camps scheduled throughout the year. Check below for more details.
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. Sign Up >
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. 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!
