JOY - Just Older Youth - Senior Adult Ministry



JOY@SGUMC stands for Just Older Youth at Shady Grove United Methodist Church. After all, isn’t that what our “Seniors” are, an older “youth” group? A group of disciples who are looking to learn more about God, more about themselves and their peers through worship, study and service.

We have put together a schedule of JOYfilled activities for the 2018-2019 year! Unless otherwise stated, our monthly meetings will start at 11:00 am on Wednesdays in the Fellowship Hall at SGUMC. Plan to stay for a few hours of faith, fellowship, food, and fun. Our meetings will usually include a covered dish meal. If it is your BIRTHDAY MONTH, BRING DESSERT to share! Everyone else bring an entree or side to share with the group. For special guest speakers or causes we will occasionally take up a love offering.
