Summer Worship - 9 a.m.
We begin our summer Sunday morning worship schedule on May 24th and will continue worshipping at 9:00am
through Labor Day Weekend.
The services will be a mixture of traditional and non-traditional services, both in terms of music and the liturgies. Sprit of Joy will lead twice in June. Holy Communion will be celebrated at the first and third Sunday services. July and August will each have one Sunday that will feature hymns chosen by those in attendance that day.
God's Work, Our Hands
Giving More Green to do God's Work.
All Are Welcome!
For the past 3-4 years funding has been flat, meaning we can pay the
mortgage, utilities and basic needs only. Council strives to live within what is
given but as you know, at times we have been forced to reduce the pay of
Christy, Pastor & staff.
We are asking members to prayerfully consider a sustained solution. If each of us increased our giving by at least $8 more each Sunday, Joy would not have to cut programs or salaries and do more for each of us. See the flyer to remember all that Joy is doing and how it aligns to the priorities members set forth!
