JOY Group

Group description: The JOY Group is a Fellowship Small Group made up of “just older youth” (seasoned adults seeking to fellowship with one another in His name).
When? We plan things we want to do and accomplish during the year at our opening meeting in January. Then we pick one or two things to do each month as they present themselves during each Quarter. Each choice is usually accompanied by eating out in some form or another. Sometimes we eat at a member’s home, some involve different kinds of restaurants, some are special parties, and all involve an activity.
Where? We usually carpool to any event if just out to lunch after church, but we always arrange transportation for getting to the events we choose.These can include members homes, theaters, day trips, and church events.

We have various social gatherings scheduled throughout the year, as well as service projects that include supporting the Quigley House, Green Cove Springs Food Pantry, and our FIPC Church family.
