JOY – Grades 9-12
What is “JOY”?
JOY stands for “Just Older Youth” and is senior high youth group at Messiah Lutheran Church just for teens in Grades 9-12! “JOY” meets on the Second Sunday of every month, May through September, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. beginning with a light supper.
At “JOY,” teens will gather once a month with adult advisors in a relaxed, faith-based, judgment-free atmosphere where conversation is encouraged, everyone’s thoughts and opinions are respected, games and fun activities take place, prayers are offered, and learning occurs while having fun. Whether you are a member of Messiah, another church, or have not yet found a church home, all are welcome!
