JOY Group Update: March 31, 2020

JOY Group Trip 2019

Kicking it old school style, that’s what the Wesley JOYsters are doing. Calling on the phone, writing letters and sending cards to keep the fellowship connection going and growing. All while checking email, scrolling Facebook and going to the Scriptures with Pastor Chris on YouTube.

While all in-person activities are suspended, the JOY Group is now on Facebook (Wesley UMC Greenville JOY Group). Follow us and partake in the daily postings and commentary. The participation through commenting is wonderful and it is fun learning more about each other.

Last Friday, our Chair Yoga program went virtual through Zoom. Instructor Dana led the class from her home yoga studio. 23 participants logged in, saw each other and enjoyed an hour of stretch and relaxation. Links to upcoming classes will be posted on the JOY Facebook page. If you are not on Facebook, text Natalie (402-578-8671) and she will add you to the text link.

Natalie and Far Away Places Travel are staying in close communication about this year’s trip, Enchanting Adventure. With hopeful anticipation, Kevin and Natalie believe normalcy will return and travel plans in November will be welcome. We know that the COVID-19 pandemic may be causing financial hardship to those interested in this year’s trip. Because of this, the deposit of $200 per person due date has been extended to May 1, 2020. An additional $300 is due by July 1, 2020, with balance due August 15, 2020. Far Away Places Travel is working with Southwest Airlines and will provide flight costs as soon as available. If you are interested in joining in on the fun, contact Natalie ([email protected] or 402-578-8671) to sign up! Deposit can be paid by check via USPS or online. Please note, travel arrangements are being closely monitored and if changes are needed, it will be communicated immediately. $50 of deposit funds are non-refundable.
