Mature Adult Ministries (JOY Fellowship)
Calendar Events
Mature Adult

The flagship activity for the large West Highland community of people better than 50 years of age is JOY Fellowship.
To encourage mature adults to be actively involved, learning, smiling, and serving.
The program varies each month, with topics ranging from the light-hearted to health issues, to safety and practical living, just to name a few. We have a mid-morning coffee break plus a wonderful lunch meal at noon.
We average about 120 people at our gatherings and you will always be warmly received by this very friendly group!
We meet on the 3rd Thursday of each month.
