JOY KIDS’ CLUB is in Full Swing!
Tuesdays 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Spirit of Joy’s popular Joy Kids’ Club program — for kids in preschool through grade 5 — is up and running. This program combines a meal & fellowship, Bible lessons, music & prayer, and games for an ac#on–packed, rollicking good #me for kids. The cost is just $3 per week and goes toward providing the meal and craft.

The Middle School Confirmation Program — for youth in grades 6-8 begins at 5:00 pm. A light meal is provided.

Please Note: There will be no Joy Kids’ Club, Confirmation Class, or Youth Group December 17 through December 31. The programs will resume on Tuesday, January 7, 2020.

Youth – This group is geared for high school youth. Along with Pastor Brian, they explore their current life experiences, discuss their plans for the future, and learn how God is connected to it all.  Food is always present when high-schoolers are involved.  Bring your friends every Tuesday at 6:00 pm. (with the exception of the last Tuesday in November, as they will join the in Family Affair: Advent Night).

Our youth will be heading to their National Youth Gathering in 2021 which will be held in Minneapolis, MN.  It sounds like it’s far off, but will be here in the blink of an eye.  We are beginning our fundraising efforts as it requires a lot of money to attend.

Youth Fundraisers

Make The Grade…There will be a new sign-up sheet every semester. There are currently 4 of our youth that meet the age criteria for this event and there are 10 semesters remaining before the National Youth Gathering in 2021. The suggested pledge per semester for an ‘A’ is $3 and a ‘B’ is $2. However, your pledge amount is entirely up to you! Each student will then post their semester grades, upon receiving them, in the Narthex. At that time, pledges may be submitted to the office and will be deposited into the youth account. Please note, all monies received will be shared equally among all participating youth. Meanwhile, let’s hope our youth get excited about this incentive!

Polly’s Pies Dine-In Event…On Monday, December 2nd from 7:00 am—9:00 pm and continuing on the first Monday of every month for the next 4 months, our youth will receive 20% from Polly’s Pies when you dine in. Just remember to pick up a flyer and present it to your friendly Polly’s server when ordering. Flyers can be found in the Narthex. What an easy way to support our youth.

Can Recycling…Consider bringing in your aluminum cans for recycling. There is a bin in the Martha Room set up specifically for that purpose. John and Judy Addington have volunteered to oversee the recycling process. Thank you, John & Judy, for stepping up. You are making a difference.
