J.O.Y. (Junior Orthodox Youth) is the youth group for children ages 7-12 years old. They meet once a month. The JOY program has the same objectives as all ministries of the church: to lead young people into a living and active relationship with Jesus Christ. Consequently, the programs and activities that we develop must always, directly and indirectly, lead in this direction. It is at this age that a foundation of faith can best be set; a foundation that will guide and strengthen our young people as they progress into junior high and high school.
