Riptide is the junior high ministry for 7th & 8th grade students at Journey Community Church. We believe every junior higher is created by God, for God, and on purpose! Our mission is to reach junior highers who are disconnected from God and help them develop a growing relationship with Jesus. Whether it’s our Sunday morning service, a mid-week LifeGroup, or a fun event, our hope is that every junior higher would leave having experienced the love of God.
LifeGroups meet weekly on Wednesday nights starting September 16 from 6:30-8:30 pm on Journey’s campus and online via Zoom.
LifeGroups are a place for students to be themselves. A place to wrestle with big questions like “who am I?” A safe place for students to discover their identity can be found in God, as a child of God. LifeGroups provides a fun, interactive environment for all students. The LifeGroup communities give students a chance to make connections with other students their age and each group is led by a faithful, caring Small Group Leader, who wants to see each student grow closer to God as they navigate the adolescent years.

Every Sunday at 11 AM our Junior High and High School ministries combine for a student service. We meet outside in the big-top tent in front of our Worship Center. This weekly service is designed specifically for students. We play fun games, are led in worship by our amazing High School band, and receive a message from God’s Word.
Camps, Events, and Activities
Our school year is packed with things like camps, services projects, and crazy events. COVID-19 has effected our normally scheduled overnight camps and retreats, but our student ministries staff is already brainstorming and planning some other incredible alternative events in the meantime.
