Dear Families,


What happens at JOY Club?

JOY Club includes many activities similar to Vacation Bible School including Bible stories, music, games, snacks and crafts.

When does JOY Club meet?  

This year JOY Club at the 1st Baptist Church in Rowley will be meeting Mondays on Pine Grove School’s Staff Development ½ days.  This  Monday, Oct. 4, we will have our first meeting. JOY Clubbers will be ready for parent pick-up at 3:15 p.m.

Who can attend JOY Club?

JOY Club is for children  in Grades K to 6.

What about transportation to JOY Club? 

JOY Club leaders will meet the children at PGS’s front door at dismissal time (1:15 p.m.) and will walk with them to the church.  On rainy days or severe cold days, transportation will be provided.  Or, if you prefer, you may transport your child to the church.


How do I sign up my child for JOY Club? Click on the JOY Club registration form link above and fill out the registration form that is provided. 


What  are the COVID Protocols for JOY Club?

  • When inside our meeting area, children will be asked to social distance as much as is possible.

  • Children will was hands upon arrival and will also have access to hand sanitizers.

  • Our registration form provides a place for parents to let us know whether or not you wish to have your child wear a mask while inside at JOY Club.


Other important information

  • You will need to send your child’s teacher a note each time we meet letting them know that your child is Mrs. Budd to walk  to Joy Club.  Please request that your child be dismissed with the walkers and meet us by the front doors. 

  • Also, please send an email to Aleta Budd, or a text, 978-815-9200,  the night before JOY Club, letting us know whether or not your child will be joining us.   We will take attendance before leaving the school, so need to know who is planning to attend.  We realize that it may not work for your child to attend every meeting.  They are welcome to attend whenever it fits In with your schedule. 

  • JOY Club is sponsored by our church so there is no cost for club members.  JOY Club leaders and church members will provide pre-packaged snacks and bottled water for the children’s snack-time.  If you prefer, you may send in a snack for your child.

Thank you and may God bless you and your family,

Joy Club Leaders (Aleta Budd, Ralph Greenberg, Sandy Jackson)
