Seniors Ministry

JOY (Just Older Youth)

(A ministry for adults 55 & older)

The purpose of the JOY Ministry is to serve the seniors of our church and community in ways that can be meaningful and relevant to them as they face changing abilities, needs, and roles in life. This includes enabling them in various ways to actively participate in a multigenerational church committed to sharing the gospel in a changing society.
