Wednesdays through May

6:30 - 8:00 pm


Summer  2017 "DIVE IN" - combined middle & high school students

Wednesdays June through August , 6 - 9:00 pm (unless otherwise noted)

A few things you should know!

  1. 1st, you MUST have a medical release form signed by a parent. Click HERE  for an online copy or get a hard copy the day of. 
  2. Every week except August 2, will include some form of water, so wear your swimsuit & bring a towel. Also, dinner is provided! Hooray FREE FOOD! 
  3. Meet at the church at 6:00 pm unless otherwise noted (221 Courtland Street) 
  4. Our rule at RBCY is to RESPECT the PEOPLE & RESPECT the PLACE. If you do those two things we think you’ll fit in well & have a great time. We do ask girls to wear a one-piece or tankini, or t-shirt over your bikini. Guys wear swim trunks out of respect for the other people who may not agree. Everyone throws on a shirt outside the water. No one like your belly button lint! 
  5. If you have any questions, feel free to call, text, or email Pastor Jake.

Reverb

For Middle School Students

Reverb is a campus ministry at both Rockford Public Middle Schools. These clubs happen before school on Tuesday (North Rockford) and Thursday (East Rockford) mornings @ 7:00 am. We encourage students to take part in these clubs as a great way to meet other Christians at their school. Reverb is also a great place to invite your friends who may not be involved in a church! We also participate in a few Reverb events that happen after school or in the evenings.
