What an exciting time for us. What a bountiful harvest and hopeful future! We have recently adopted a new Mission and Vision that is giving us direction for our life together. Our church leadership has also done a lot of work on re-organizing our council around this emerging focus—we know that God is leading us into a new chapter of ministry.
At Joy we gather to be renewed in the joy and love of God through inspiring worship and caring community. We seek to
understand and live by God’s Word. We serve those in need of God’s healing through Christ, reaching out
to our community and world.
Our Vision: To be a growing, generous and hopeful community, working together to connect in a spiritually relevant way with God and our neighbor.
One of the most important ways for us to grow into this mission and vision is by increasingly reflecting on the joy and generosity of God. Scripture is filled with reminders that we are called to grow in faith. One of our abiding prayers is that together we grow in our generosity toward God’s church! And so, we invite you to join us to grow your giving for our 2014 Ministries!
Your love and faithfulness to Joy has been a blessing. And we pray that you see this new chapter of our life together as an opportunity to express your gratefulness and partnership in all we do. Please read the Steps/directions, fill out the pledge card & return it to Joy on/by November 10th so we can begin to plan the fruits of 2014 at Joy.
Many people choose to forward Joy's ministries through Simply GivingŪ. If you are already enrolled in Simply GivingŪ, thank you very much. It truly helps us to have consistent giving for our ministries over the course of the year.
Joy Lutheran Church wants to more accurately gauge the strength, vitality and trends in our church.
While we want to update our mission/vision, more importantly we want to know what your hopes are for Joy. See our newly developed 'Mission and Vision.'

NURSERY IS AVAILABLE
We welcome children at Joy Lutheran Church and in worship. We also understand that infants and toddlers are very active, therefore providing a nursery helps parents receive the greatest benefit from worship. Please be respectful of time and pick up your children after worship.
