Java JOY

What is Java JOY?

Java JOY is one of JOY International's small group events for women. We meet the first Thursday of every month to discuss topics relevant and interesting to women and the issues we face. Java JOY provides a great venue for local women to share their stories and encourage, inspire and give hope to other women.

Every year we focus our monthly topics around a theme. Our theme for October - May 2017 is... PSALMS ALIVE!

You might be asking yourself how the Psalms are relevant today. In many ways...

  • They are the best possible guide for practical living, because every life situation is represented within these.
  • Their words bring encouragement, instruction, and inspiration.
  • They show us that God is more loving, good, and wise than we ever imagined.
  • They show us the right way to respond to God.
  • They welcome everyone regardless of spiritual or emotional condition to explore their pages.

​Each month a local women will share her story of how a particular psalm verse was especially meaningful, practical, and helpful to her. Through these stories, the psalm then comes alive!

At our October Java JOY

Fran Dwelle will be speaking on one of her favorite psalms, one that continually strengthens her faith, transforms her heart and encourages her daily life. Fran is a wife and mother of three adult daughters and three granddaughters. She is also the founder and leader of JOY International.  

Come join us for good coffee, conversation, and comforting soul food... and don't forget to invite a friend!
