HOPE & JOY
HOPE is a ministry to Kindergarten through 2nd grade children of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. The orientation and implementation of our HOPE program reflects the Orthodox Christian Faith, Tradition and Life.
The mission and goal of the HOPE ministry is to lead our children in to experiencing the Holy Orthodox Faith. By developing a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and becoming active sacramental members of the living church, our children will be equipped with tools necessary to assist them in their journey toward salvation. By laying a foundation of faith at this age, the young people will have something that will guide and strengthen them through life.
The Junior Orthodox Youth, or JOY, is the ministry to 3rd through 6th grade children of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. The foundation of all youth ministry is the education of our young people in order to become viable members of the Body of Christ.
