Welcome to JOY!
How appropriately this Church was named when
the people first came together to form it in 1973. One of the
hallmarks of a deep personal relationship with Jesus is just that;
JOY. It doesn’t mean that life’s problems and difficulties
automatically disappear, but it does mean that in the midst of even
the darkest times of life, we can have JOY knowing we are never
alone or forgotten. JOY comes in knowing that we walk hand in hand
with the one who gives life.
That’s what we’re about here at JOY. Celebrating life as given by
the Creator in its multitude of forms. This little packet describes
for you the variety of events we sponsor here at JOY. Since we are
an ever-changing community, just as life is ever changing, this
certainly is not an exhaustive list. It is merely meant to
highlight for you the many ways we want to help you celebrate being
alive and to help you find healing for your hurts.
Jesus says in Matthew 11:28 “come to me all you who are weary and
burdened and I will give you rest.” And as Jesus says in John
10:10, “I have come that they may have life and have it to the
full”. We hope in some small way you experienced that here at JOY
in our worship and if you would like to find that on a more
consistent basis, we invite you to come and join us on the journey
here at JOY.
