A hallmark ministry of Assumption Church, First Fridays is a program available to all HOPE and JOY youth (Kindergarten-5th grade). Providing youth with an evening of fun, fellowship, and learning, this parish program is hosted on the first Friday of each month, September through May. Running from 6-8:30p, the mission of this monthly activity, beside providing a safe environment for youth to hang out and enjoy one another, is to engage through activity, fellowship, and discussion our youth in their Orthodox faith.
Ultimately a formational and educational program, full of campfires, group activities/games, movies, arts & crafts, and much more, First Fridays is a ministry connecting youth with their peers, community as a whole, and ancient Christian witness.
Those parents wishing for their youth to participate should arrive no later than 6p, and register with our volunteer staff. Please feel free to contact our church office at (480) 991-3009 with any questions. All are welcome!
