Summer Camp Sign-Ups Begin in 2 WEEKS!!!

Riptide is headin' back to Summer Camp at Thousand Pines this July 10-15, 2011. In an age of constant technology, media and entertainment, camp is a great place where middle schoolers are free to focus on their relationship with Christ, meet new friends, and have a blast with the ones they already have.

The current price for this entire week of camp is $400. This includes transportation, five nights and 6 days of camp fun, all meals, and $20 of camp bucks that can be used by your camper for any additional food or free time activities at camp.

Sign-ups begin April 17th. A $100 non refundable deposit will hold you spot. Spots are limited, so so do not wait to sign-up! (Payment plans, fundraising opportunities TBA, and limited Thousand Pines Scholarships are available).

Collier Park Clean Up

Last year, the college aged ministry and our middle school ministry joined forces and adopted La Mesa's Collier Park on Palm Avenue. Through out the year we have spent a few Saturday mornings pulling weeds, painting over graffiti, and picking up trash in efforts to help the neighboring community.

Below are some photos of the park taken just last week. Join us this Saturday as we bring this park back to the natural beauty that it is and give back to the community a park to enjoy. All you need to bring is gloves, any gardening tools you may have, and an attitude ready to serve! We will be meeting in the Collier Park Parking Lot (4401 Palm Avenue La Mesa, CA 91941) at 9am. All family members and friends are welcomed to join us!

Leapin' Leprechauns

Instead of small groups next week, we will all be meeting together for a fun Leprechaun themed night. We will play Leprechaun games, search for gold, eat green snacks, and hear some great teaching from the Bible. This is a PERFECT night to bring friends!

The only thing you will need to bring is money for $1 Leprechaun Mint Chocolate Shakes and some treats in the cafe.

Please note that the required attire for this event is Leprechaunish! We will be having costume contests for who dresses the most green or leprechaun-like so be sure to get creative!

This Leapin' Leprechaun event is absolutely free. See you there!!

Current Sunday AM Series:

God uses people who aren't afraid to get dirty — “hard-working men and women who earn an honest living doing the kinds of jobs that make civilized life possible for the rest of us” while letting other experience the awesome love God has for us. Are you ready to get dirty?
