JOY stands for Just Over Youth, and is the name we've coined to our ministry to those of us that have retired. We meet for a wonderful time of food, fellowship, thanksgiving, prayer, programs, and reminiscing. The group loves to share stories of our families, our Church, and our Lord Jesus. JOY has been a thriving ministry at Wake Chapel for more than 20 years. The group meets the first Monday of each month, September through May. Typically, meetings are held in the main campus Church Fellowship Hall and begin at 11:45 a.m. Lunch is served at noon. All seniors are invited to join our JOY group. Exciting, fun, and educational field trips are an important part of the JOY ministry. Events include picnics, cook outs, train trips, and, more recently, a trip to see the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit.
