Fr. Michael State with the youth.
The JOY youth group serves the spiritual needs of children from 3rd to 5th grade and is led by advisors who know what type of activities and events will work with this age group. Monthly events include activities that combine fun, learning and spiritual development. These activities are designed to help form a basic understanding of Orthodox Christianity while getting the kids to interact and make lifelong friends, which is so important to a long-term connection to our church.
