We're located in Ramona, California, on the edge of the "back country" in northern San Diego County... Click here for directions.
This summer has been filled with ministry for our children and youth. From Vacation Bible School, to Beach Camp. to the just completed Houseboats it has been a great summer for our young people. As a congregation we have anticipated the Ramona Country Fair on the land of Spirit of Joy. That event is now complete, and we thank everyone from our Men's Fellowship and Evangelism Team to all of those who graciously signed up to help with parking and our Spirit of Joy Booth. It was a tremendous opportunity for the church to be part of a monumental community event As one of our members shared on Sunday....everyone in the community knows of Spirit of Joy. We have been a vital part of Ramona for more than 20 years, and now we have the vision to being the gateway to Ramona becoming a reality.
We move forward with all of the necessary preliminaries for breaking ground. We have secured a civil engineer with a submittal of those final plans set for 60 days. The architect has begun the final design and construction drawings, and we are set to close the loan and sign the papers on August 10th. These are exciting times for all of us.
With these great moments comes the encouragement in our stewardship and financial giving. In order for us to realize the building on the corner of Highland Valley and Highway 67 we need to continue to lift up our giving to the Glorious Unfolding building fund, and to our general weekly giving. The ministry needs to be infused with our giving in order that all we are doing is functioning at its greatest capacity. We are a growing congregation, and with that comes the responsibility and privilege of a beautiful shared ministry. May our gifts be multiplied by God to do great things at Spirit of Joy.
One other upcoming event reminder. Rally Day will be September 13th with our traditional kick off of Sunday School, a wonderful breakfast given by our Men's Fellowship, and an evening of hamburgers and hot dogs provided by our Youth and the Pinewood Derby. We are hoping this year along with individual cars that our various ministries will enter a car too. This is always a great time for everyone.
See You Sunday, Pastor Dan
