JoyWok is a youth fellowship that seeks to create a close, caring community while learning more about God! It is also a place where we want everybody to feel comfortable. Start with worship lead by our student worship teams and then receive teaching from a message. Following the message, we will break up into small groups. During small groups, counselors and students discuss the message and have fun growing closer to one another.
Joywok is run by the YCOWS- a group of high school teenagers who wish to serve God alongside the adults who support them.
