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.
There will be no Confirmation Class, Youth Group, or Joy
Kids’ Club on Tuesday, November 26. Instead, we’ll meet
at 5:30 for a Family Affair…our annual Advent Fes.val.
Hope to see you there!
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 a 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.
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, November 4th from 7:00 am—9:00 pm and continuing on the first
Monday of every month for the next 5 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.
