J.O.Y. Group

Just Older Youth (J.O.Y) is the nickname for the Senior Adult Ministry at McEachern Memorial UMC. It is a ministry, for and with, all who have reached the status of “retiree”, even though they might not be completely retired. In addition the fellowship and service,  J.O.Y. participants enjoy one-day trips to destinations within the North Georgia area.

We gather the first Friday of every month, at 11:30 am in Lula Dobbs Hall. A great program is always provided and typically a service project that assists the group who comes to speak, i.e.Roger Leggett of the Red Wagon Project spoke to us regarding the ministry of providing red wagons with poles for children who need to wheeled with an I.V and/or medicine bag in medical facilities. We provided two wagons and delivered them. We always support the Thanksgiving food baskets with Kroger gift cards from the change we collect from playing bingo, and many more. Brad Van Dusen of Sleep in Heavenly Peace spoke with our group about this non-profit agency that provides twin beds for children who have NO bed. All financial donation collected in October were presented to Brad to help these children, and many more

Lunches are Pot Luck so, don’t forget to bring your favorite dish to share with everyone else!

We also enjoy day trips Like to the mountains during the fall or walking beautiful gardens or visiting other local historical locations, we always have fun as we travel and share a meal together.

Do you love to sing and are 55+? Do you love bringing joy to others? Do you want to share the love of Jesus to others in a very special way?
