JUNIOR ORTHODOX YOUTH
The Junior Orthodox Youth or JOY, is the ministry to elementary school children at our Church. Since JOY is a ministry, the orientation and implementation of the program reflects the Orthodox Christian Faith, Tradition and Life. The mission and goal of the JOY ministry is to lead our young people into experiencing the Holy Orthodox Faith and becoming future active members of our Church. We accomplish this goal by providing both fun and educational activities throughout the year. “ We often hear that the youth are the future of the Church. But in fact the Church is the future of the youth!” says His Eminence Metropolitan Alexios of Atlanta.
