Our JOY  Club was formed on January 5, 2002, to promote and provide opportunities for adults (50 years old and older) to participate in wholesome-social recreation, church-related activities and mission projects of special interest to seniors.  Our Club meets in the Fellowship Hall of First Baptist Church, Gastonia, NC, the first Tuesday of each month, September through May.  Our meetings begin at 11:00 am and adjourn near 12:45 pm.  At our meetings, after attending to brief Club matters, programs of interest, including music and education, are provided by invited program providers.  We enjoy delightful meals together after which we adjourn.  Membership dues are nine dollars ($9.00) for the club's program year plus one dollar ($1.00) for special ministries. For first-time members who join during the club year, dues are prorated at one-dollar ($1.00) per month for the month joined and the remainder of the club year plus one dollar ($1.00) for special ministries.




    OCTOBER 4, 2016




As members of Mulberry Baptist Church, Charlotte, NC, the FROM THE HEART trio was formed in the early 1970’s.  Margaret Cartner, Sonnia Lawson, Martha Smith, vocalists, and Bobbi Hodge, accompanist, composed the group. After performing throughout North Carolina some ten years, the group disbanded due to travel restrictions..  After some thirty years, and many prayers, FROM THE HEART resumed its ministry in 2011.  It’s original members continue to enjoy “Spreading His Word through song.”
