The Hellenic Orthodox Primary Education (HOPE) program is for children ages 5-8, and the Junior Orthodox Youth (JOY) program is geared toward children ages 9-12. These programs are currently conducted as one unit. It is the goal of the Youth Ministries program to have these two programs run independently. The purpose of these two programs is to provide these children with a solid foundation in their Orthodox Faith. Children at this age are very impressionable, and it is during this time that the most important work can be done. Activities for these groups include, but are not limited to retreats, field trips and excursions, and our Winter Bible camp.
