Riptide is the Middle School ministry for 6th – 8th grade students at Journey Community Church. We believe every middle schooler is created by God, for God, and on purpose! Our mission is to reach students 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 middle schooler would leave having experienced the love of God.
LifeGroups meet weekly on Wednesday nights starting September 15 from 6:30-8:30 pm on Journey’s campus.
Dinner served at 6:30 pm for $5
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.

Riptide meets at 9 + 11 AM on Sunday mornings in the Riptide Room. This weekly service is designed specifically for middle school students. There is tons of time for students to hang out and connect with each other. During our service, students will experience fun games, meaningful worship, and Biblical teaching 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.
