JOY

Geared toward kids in grades (K-5). Several different types of activities (Worship, Service, Fellowship, Witness) are encouraged to equip children with the knowledge of the Orthodox Faith and how to apply it in their daily life. The development of Godly friendships is fostered at all times.

HOPE

From the Archdiocese website…The HOPE is the ministry to 3 to 5 year old children of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. Since HOPE is a ministry, the orientation and implementation of the program should reflect 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.

Basketball Tournament

Basketball is a great group activity that strengthens the bonds of friendship and camaraderie in the community. Anyone who goes to our church is encouraged to participate. For more information see www.greekbball.org.
