What's Inside Series

We all are uniquely and intrinsically designed by the hand of God for a reason. For the next three weeks we are going to continue to look at not only at purpose, but flushing some stuff out that could hinder us from doing amazing things, and putting important things inside.

May 18 "Created for a Purpose"
"And yet, LORD, you are our Father. We are the clay, and you are the potter. We are all formed by your hand." (Isaiah 64:8)

May 25 "Flushed out"

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” Hebrews 12:1

June 1 "Fill'er up!"
"But what happens when we live God's way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard—things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force our way in life, able to marshal and direct our energies wisely." Galatians 5:22-23 (the Message)

June 8 "Prize Inside"

"A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other."
1 Corinthians 12:7


Sunday, June 8th Journey Community Church will be having a Church-Wide Baptism. It will be held at Crown Point Mission Bay at 2:00pm to 4:00pm. If you have a middle schooler that is ready to be baptized I will have a baptism booklet available this Sunday for them to take home, fill out and then, return to me. When they bring it back, I will meet with them briefly to talk about what baptism is, the awesome decision they are making, and what to expect and bring that day.

If you do not have anyone in your family that is getting baptized, this is still a great opportunity to come hang out while supporting those who are taking this exciting step in their Christian walk. There will be hamburgers, hotdogs, and drinks. All you have to do is come and bring a side dish or dessert to share.

If you have any questions feel free to email me at christina@journeycom.org

This is definitely a day you and your family will not want to miss!

A Lesson Learned

Unfortunately the hard drive on my computer recently crashed and died. This means that everything has been lost including the Riptide Parent Email List. It would help me out tremendously if you could email me at christina@journeycom.org so I can recreate the parent list. I now have a new operating system that will back up everything every week so this shouldn't be a problem again. Thank you so much for helping me out!

Lesson Learned: Back up your hard drive...all the time!!!
