JOY & The Way
Junior Orthodox Youth (JOY) is the ministry for children in Grades K-2. This ministry is designed to promote bonding between the child and the Faith, promote the tenets of Greek Orthodox Christianity in the lives of young people and develop Orthodox Christian Fellowship & promote proper Orthodox Christian development.
Recent JOY gatherings have even included Christmas arts & crafts, visit to the Hellenic Nursing Home and our Annual Easter Egg Hunt after Agape Service.
The Way is a ministries for those is Grades 3rd to 5th. They meet simultaneously with our JOY group, but often split up for age appropriate lessons and discussions. The children continue growing in their faith and forming friendships with other children they have known since their JOY experience.
NEW THIS YEAR...Family Night!
Every second JOY/ WAY meeting of the month, all children 5th grade and under are invited ALONG with their parents for Family Night!. We will start with family dinner, then break into our respective groups, JOY, THE WAY, and Parents. Each group will have their own on going discussion for the evening. We are very excited to offer this experience for entire families to grow in faith and fellowship.
The first family night will be the evening of Friday, September 21st!
Parents are asked to attend and assist in these ministries. Parents also host gatherings and provide refreshments and snacks. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer, please contact Mr. Anthony at firstname.lastname@example.org
