Youth Ministries

“Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”

Luke 18:16-17

Your children are important to you. The children of Joyce are important to us. Most importantly, each child matters GREATLY to God! Our desire is to come alongside the families of this community to help reach our children for Christ and equip them to be young disciples! All of our volunteers have a passion for reaching and equipping the next generation. Here are the ways Joyce Bible Church can come alongside your family...

Sunday School

Every Sunday morning at 10AM in the Fellowship Hall, we have Sunday School to minister to those in pre-K through High School, and beyond.

Children's Church (During Sunday's Sermon)

During our worship service (11AM), children join us in the sanctuary for worship, then when the message starts, children age pre-K3 through 6th 8th grade have the option to go with other children to receive wonderful teaching at their age level. 

Youth Group

The Middle School and High School years are tough times in most of our lives as we grow, and struggle with our identity and place in this complex world. We also know that this is an important time when the Lord draws many teens to Himself. At Joyce Bible Church, our youth leaders are committed to connect, to come alongside, and to "speak the truth in love" (Ephesians 4:15) with the youth of their community.
