JOY/HOPE Youth Groups
Junior Orthodox Youth
(JOY) and Holy Orthodox Primary Education (HOPE) are ministries of
the Church. JOY ministers to youth in grades 3rd
– 6th while HOPE
is for children Kindergarten through 2nd
grade. Here in our parish, these ministries are combined to form
JOY/HOPE. Belonging to JOY/HOPE depends solely on being an Orthodox
Christian. The mission of JOY/HOPE is to strengthen the relationship
of young Orthodox Christians with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
It is a spiritual ministry based on the theological tenets of the
Orthodox Christian Faith.
JOY/HOPE integrates the following elements throughout the year: worship, fellowship, service,
and witness. These tenants of JOY/HOPE are seen in their yearly events including: St. Timothy’s summer camp, Vacation Church
School, monthly JOY/HOPE nights, retreats, outdoor activities, and
other exciting events. Visit the church calendar to see what is planned for JOY/HOPE this month!
