About Riptide

If you’re in grade 8 or 9, then Riptide is the place for you! We’re all about helping you to connect to Jesus and to the larger church, as well as making some lasting friendships and having a lot of fun! We know that students your age are figuring out how you fit into this big world and what you believe, and we have a great team of awesome people who want to walk with you as you do that. 

Parents: Sign up here for our Student Ministry newsletter to stay informed about what's coming up!

Midweek Regular Events


On Monday nights at 7pm, we're studying the Bible together! Join us with the rest of our WJHM family for an indepth Bible Study via Zoom! Contact to get the Zoom Info!


High Voltage FUSE groups (gr. 6 & 7) and Riptide Gab Groups (gr. 8 & 9) are meeting mostly online via Zoom for this season. You'll still be grouped with other guys or girls from your grade and some great leaders who love to spend time with ya. We are also starting to meet for the occasional in-person life groups. Check the event reel or the calendar in the sidebar!

If you've never been part of a group or have been away for a while and want to get re-connected, just email Lauren at with your name and grade and we will get you into a group!
