Joy (Just Older Youth)
Joy (Just Older Youth) – 55 & Over Ministry
Purpose of Ministry: JOY is a vigorous, enthusiastic group that maintains a positive attitude, concentrating on the blessings in life. We minister to the Senior Adults at Valley, and reach out to those who need to know Christ and to be part of a fellowship.
Program of Ministry: Fellowship Luncheons and Sunday Night Socials give Senior Adults time to socialize together. We also visit rest homes and give our Senior Adults the joy of ministering to others in need and sharing the Gospel. Keeping in touch with phone calls, notes, and letters is a ministry of encouragement. The Valley Voyagers take monthly 3-day camping trips. We take day trips to places such as the Roy Rogers and Gene Autry Museums, Knott’s Berry Farm, etc. All of these activities keep this group vigorous and enthusiastic.
Opportunities to Serve: To serve in this ministry, one must have a genuine love for this age group! The opportunities are limitless and include visitation to rest homes and homes of shut-ins, phone calls, writing notes of encouragement, as well as serving on planning in the above events.
