G.O.Y.A is the Ascension of Our Lord's high school youth group. The primary focus of our youth group is to educate our young about our Greek Orthodox Christian Faith and learn to incorporate those teachings into their daily lives.  Through discussions and Diakonia (Service) Projects they learn "how" to live our Greek Orthodox Faith.  In spending time together through Koinonia (fellowship) they learn of the JOY of Christ within each other! GOYA meets weekly on Monday evening from 7:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. as per our September to May schedule.  Stay tuned this summer for the 2017/18 schedule.  If you are in High School please come and join us!

MEETS:  Mondays, 7:30-9 pm.   The 2016/17 theme was:  "You are the Voice of Christ in a Changing World."  Please join us for inspiring conversations, philanthropic projects and a lot of fun! The year culminates on May 22, 2017.  Stay tuned this summer for registration information for the 2017/18 year.

Our Faith

The Church
The life of the Orthodox Church perpetuates and fulfills the ministry of Jesus Christ. The close association between Christ and His Church is reflected in the images from the Scriptures which declare that Christ is the Head and the Church is His Body, and that Christ is the Bridegroom and the Church is His bride.
