Riptide exists to reach students who are far from God, to teach them how to follow Jesus step by step and help them discover who God has called them to be. We're dedicated to providing a safe place for students in grades 7 - 12 where they can have fun and can connect with God, with other students, and with older committed leaders who are dedicated to seeing students grow closer to Jesus.
Our goal this year is to take the students deeper in their relationship with God. We want to encourage mentorship, discipleship and a deeper understanding of the Bible and growing in our faith. As we choose this goal we want to put more focus in the understanding on worship and why we do a sermon each week, as well as focusing on Small Group relationships, as we believe in community, friendship and accountability to help us each in our walk of faith. Each of the youth have a safe place where they can encounter Jesus and feel comfortable sharing with one another in these bonds created throughout the year.
