You may retire from work, but you never retire from the work of the Lord.  The TSBT J.O.Y. (Just Over Youth) ministry gives senior adults a place to continue to grow in their faith and to show the wisdom they have achieved through experience.

The purpose of the J.O.Y. ministry is to strengthen and encourage our senior adults thru teaching, singing, sharing and fellowship.

The J.O.Y. group participate in many special activities, trips and events thru out the year. Our Pastor will soon be starting and leading a special choir made up of only our J.O.Y. adults. Join them soon!
