Dear Families,

Ms. Kathy and I pray that you all are safe and well and have missed seeing you and the children of our church! We have been working diligently to plan ministry opportunities for JOY kids in the midst of these new circumstances for the fall.  In the spirit of loving thy neighbor, keeping ourselves and you all safe is top priority when planning for JOY kids. The United Methodist Church is allowing small groups to meet in person with careful distancing in place. Our hope is to offer fun, outdoor adventures and service projects. We will continue offering Sunday school every Sunday virtually as well. When meeting in person, we will have procedures in place to practice social distancing and hand washing. This means, masks are required for our in person gatherings and all events will be outside (weather permitting).

We thank you for all of your prayers and support. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me via email, scarlette pless

We are excited for things to kick off in the fall and for the opportunity to gather in person again!

Blessings to all,

Ms. Scarlette and Ms. Kathy

Dear Families,

In the spirit of loving thy neighbor, keeping ourselves, parents and children safe is top priority when planning for JOY kids. With it being cold and flu season, we have decided to offer virtual gatherings, along with self-guided mission opportunities in the early part of our spring semester. If numbers in our area trend in the right direction, we will reassess and plan for in person. Once the weather warms up again, we do plan to offer outdoor, in person gatherings. We will continue offering Sunday school, every Sunday, virtually. When meeting in person, we will have procedures in place to practice social distancing and hand washing. This means, masks are required for our in person gatherings.

We thank you for all of your prayers and support. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me via email, scarlette pless  or by phone, 704-797-1603.

We are excited for the spring!

Blessings to all,

Ms. Scarlette and Ms. Kathy
