Our JOY  Club was formed on January 5, 2002, to promote and provide opportunities for adults (50 years old and older) to participate in wholesome-social recreation, church-related activities and mission projects of special interest to seniors.  Our club meets in the Fellowship Hall of First Baptist Church, Gastonia, NC, the first Tuesday of each month, September through May.  Our meetings begin at 10:30 am and adjourn near 12:15 pm.  At our meetings, after attending to brief Club matters, programs of interest, including music and education, are provided by invited program providers.  We enjoy delightful meals together after which we adjourn.  Membership dues are nine dollars ($9.00) for the club's program year plus one dollar ($1.00) for special ministries. For first-time members who join during the club year, dues are prorated at one-dollar ($1.00) per month for the month joined and the remainder of the club year plus one dollar ($1.00) for special ministries.


       PROGRAM FOR TUESDAY,  MAY 5, 2015





The Celebration Choir, formed many years ago to provide an opportunity for seniors to participate in church music and music ministry,  is currently  lead by Jimmy Brown, Director/Pianist, and its membership includes some twenty participants.  The music ministry of the choir includes providing programs of songs at Nursing Facilities throughout Gastonia.  Too, for the past four years, the Choir has provided programs for the May meetings of The JOY Club of First Baptist Church.   The Choir rehearses and or provides programs the first Tuesday in each month, except the first Tuesday when the JOY Club meets, September through May.  The Choir includes a few welcomed participants who are members of other churches in the City, and such others are certainly welcomed to join the Celebration Choir.
