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 December Java JOY - Psalm 3:1-3

Nicci Johnson will tell her story of how she overcame drug and alcohol addictions through God's strength and saving grace. Nicci believes that no matter what is causing us to be downcast, the Lord offers encouragement through His Word to lift our heads and hands and look to Him.

Nicci is a life coach and co-founder of Real Faith Live Ministries--a global community working together to shift culture from darkness and shame to light and love, believing that we can shine brighter together than we could ever shine alone.

Join us for good coffee and conversation... and go home with a refreshed heart!
