We're Moving!!!

Journey Community Church just launched a brand new website! It looks amazing and Riptide is super excited to be apart of it!

From now on, all of Riptide's updates will be found here. That means, all event updates, Sunday Morning Series Announcements, and links to permission slips and other information will be found on that website.

You can also find weekly updates on our Riptide Face Book Page as well. Once you "like" that page, all updates will show up in your personal Facebook feed.

Current Sunday Morning Series:

God has called you to a journey that will change you and change the world. It is no accident that you are in middle school this year. You have been chosen to live at this moment for a purpose. You have also been chosen to live no ordinary middle school life. YOU have been chosen to walk the journey of a hero. This is your mission if you choose to accept it.

God has given you everything you need to navigate this journey. Through his word, God has given you access to the wisdom that will give you the strength and guidance required to live the heroic life God has called you to. For the next five weeks, we are going to look at what it takes to life out this heroic life. Are you willing to accept this calling?

“You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”
1 Peter 2:9

August 14 PROMOTION SUNDAY: You have been Chosen

August 21 Accepting the Call

August 28 Forces that Guide

September 4 Trials and Triumphs

September 11 Give Back!

Be sure to stop by Student Center A this Sunday for our 2011/2012 Student Ministries Orientation Parent Meeting. We will be discussing a sure-proof plan to have one of the greatest school years ever!

Below is our Fall Calendar with stuff you definitely do not want to miss.

Next Sunday, August 14th, we are going to celebrate the new school year by promoting everyone to the next grade all over campus. It will be huge party to ring in the new year and talk about what we are looking forward to in Riptide.


At the end of the parent meeting this Sunday, Christina will also be selling a limited umber of of Padre Tickets in the Left Field Reserved Section for the PADRE GAME and SWITCHFOOT CONCERT on Sunday, September 18th @ 1:05pm. Those that attend this meeting will have first dibbs on these tickets. We will not be providing rides down to the game itself, but hope this is just a great opportunity for families to go together to a game and a concert. That's right, after the game, there will be a concert afterwards with the amazing SWITCHFOOT.

Each ticket is $12.50 (regularly $17 tickets) and that covers the game and the concert. If I still have some left after the meeting, I will open them up to be purchased the following Sunday Morning on a first come first serve basis. Because of the high demand for these tickets, I will not be able to hold any tickets. I will just distribute the actual tickets as I receive payment.

8th Grade Graduation Banquet

Wednesday, July 20, 2011


Once again, Riptide will be joining churches from across the county to participate in one of the craziest and biggest water wars of the year. The students will be divided into three teams representing three different colors. The color represents the color of water that will be provided for that team to fill their super soaker with.

There will be pizza, a speaker, and the greatest water fight of all time. $10 includes dinner and a t-shirt.
Sign ups began this Sunday. Pick up a Permission Slip in the back or fill out online form here. To assure there will be enough food and t-shirts, I need to know how many people are signing up by this Sunday.

Ride Details: We will leave the Journey Parking Lot @ 4:30pm. Students will need to be picked up at College Avenue Baptist Church @ 7pm.
(Warning: students will be wet.)

(This event is for incoming 7th, 8th, and 9th graders only.)
