JOY, which stands for “Junior Orthodox Youth,” is our youth ministry program for children ages 7-9.
JOY, which meets once a month, provides children with an environment of faith, fun, and learning. Children learn about the Orthodox Christian faith in group conversations with Father Panteleimon and through activities with the JOY advisors. Our JOY members are encouraged to ask questions, participate in activities, and participate in our monthly themed crafts. We also like our JOY members to participate in fun games and events.
