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!
Music Coordinator Position
A new position has been created, Music Coordinator, who will coordinate all music groups at Joy. Job posting is open now. Please call the Church Office for more information.
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.
