HOPE & JOY
HOPE is a ministry at St. Demetrios that provides an opportunity for children ages 4-6 (grades K through 3) to meet, socialize and interact with one another. Our children will have fun through crafts, story time, games and special events while making new friends!
Junior Orthodox Youth (JOY) is the ministry to children between fourth and sixth grade. This ministry is designed to promote bonding between the child and the Faith, promote the tenets of Greek Orthodox Christianity in the lives of young people and develop Orthodox Christian Fellowship & promote proper Orthodox Christian development.
Parents are encouraged to attend and assist in both ministries.
Recent HOPE & JOY gatherings have even included Lent Retreats at All Saints Camp, visit to the Seattle Aquarium and our Annual Twilight Easter Egg Hunt.
