J.O.Y. Fellowship (Just Older Youth) is a ministry of fellowship and point of connection to GoodNaz for Senior Adults 55+. JOY Fellowship meets monthly on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 6:00 PM, normally at the church, but occasionally hosting outside activities.

JOY Fellowship activities may include soup/game night, visiting one of the many Nashville venues, taking a boat cruise, attending a lovely Christmas Banquet, or traveling for a short-term annual retreat. As an outreach, we host a Ladies’ Shelter Banquet at the church, annually in March where we transport the ladies and treat them to dinner and music at the church, as well as sharing Christmas baskets with shut-in’s in December.

For additional information, please contact our Senior Adult Director:  Rev. Jack Carpenter, 615-675-4222
