Just Older Youth (JOY) – Senior Adults

Our JOY (Just Older Youth) are an active, vital part of the church.  They are involved in six areas of ministry:

  • Music:  On the first, second, third, and fifth Tuesdays, our Senior Adult Choir, the J.O.Y. Singers,  practices.  We sing in church, in nursing homes and other locations.  Rehearsal takes place in the choir room immediately behind the sanctuary.
  • Dinner & a Movie:  On the fourth Friday, we eat and watch a movie together.
  • Nursing Home Ministry:  On the second and fourth Thursday and fourth Tuesday, we lead worship services at Hillside Retirement Community, Carillon, and Brookdale Retirement Community.
  • Travel:  Once a month, we go on a trip to some educational and entertaining location.
  • Discipleship:  We encourage all of our seniors to attend Sunday school.  We also provide a retreat once a year for Bible Study & fellowship.
  • Ministry to Seniors:  Our seniors have begun a care ministry to seniors in our church and in our community.
