A hallmark ministry of Assumption Church, First Fridays is a program available to all HOPE, JOY, and Jr GOYA youth (Kindergarten-8th 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 5:30-8:30 pm, 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 5:30 pm, and register with our volunteer staff. Please feel free to contact our church office at (480) 991-3009 with any questions. All are welcome!
