Riptide Olympics Have Begun!

This Sunday we started the Riptide Olympics. Students designed their team flags and the games have begun. Each week we will start the morning with an 'Olympic type' game that will encourage the teams to work together for a grand prize!

Our theme will go along with our teaching series which is based on the life and writings of the apostle Paul. Paul may not have been in the Olympics but he trained and worked hard to be a follower of Jesus.

"Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever." 1 Corinthians 9:24-25

The race is on!

Riptide Beach Days

Sign-up on Sundays to reserve your spot in the carpool. Bring a signed permission slip, towel, sunscreen, swimsuit, and any beach toys you would like. Be prepared for a time to just hang out at the beach and have fun.

Sunday Service Time Change Alert

Starting this Sunday, June 15th
the two identical Riptide Sunday Morning Services will be held at:

10:45am - 12:00am

These service times match the main service times as well.

This Sunday we will also begin a two week series called
"Riptide Pool Rules"

This series is based on Mark 12:30-31 "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these."

So the Riptide Pool Rules are:

Rule #1 Love God
Rule #2 Love Others

It really is as simple as that!
