First Baptist Church St. Simons Island

JOY (Just Older Youth)

The mission of the JOY group is to introduce people to Jesus Christ and to help them grow in their faith by getting together with Senior Adults on a regular basis to share Christ in a variety of ways and have fellowship with others of our age group. Activities have included trips to the Savannah Theatre, Al Hambre Dinner theatre in Jacksonville, various shows and musicals at the Times Union center in Jacksonville, spring picnics at the park, and seasonal gatherings including  our annual Valentine’s  and St. Patrick’s day dinners and Christmas/Thanksgiving lunch.

The Senior Adult Ministry at FBCSSI has been active for many years. There will always be those who are blessed to be part of the 55+ crowd which should be the most happy and enjoyable years of their lives. At FBCSSI, we value and welcome the gifts of older adults. We strive to encourage a positive vision of aging within the church.
