Our Purpose

Sharing the love of God and making disciples who follow Jesus Christ by building a Christian community through fellowship and outreach.

Whom We Serve

The JOY Group ministry is designed to reach persons aged 50+, both married and single regardless of sex, race, or religious affiliation.

Why We Serve

We serve others because Jesus Christ served us. We strive to fulfill His calling for us to be in ministry to each other, to our community, and to the whole world.

We meet the 2nd Tuesday of each month in Hope Hall. We have lunch together, socialize, and enjoy a variety of programs/guest speakers.
