As we approach the month of November, it is always a time for giving thanks. Spirit of Joy has so much to be grateful for in our life together. November is a month that will be filled with activity and ministry.
We will be asking everyone to take the shopping bags home for our annual Thanksgiving drive. Each bag includes items that you are to purchase so that we can distribute the bags through the Ramona Food and Clothes Closet. Please return the filled bags to the church over the next three weeks.
Our worship life will include an emphasis each week on our ministry at Spirit of Joy. This year we are highlighting our music, children and youth, and evangelism. The theme of our stewardship emphasis is "The Glorious Unfolding", to tie in with our building campaign effort this year. On Sunday, November 8th. 5pm. you are invited to our annual Harvest Thanksgiving Dinner. This is a time for our entire family to fellowship, and hear about the coming year. This next year will be a critical year in our congregation as we move through the steps for permitting, breaking ground, and building the new worship center and fellowship/office/nursery center. In the midst of building, we must keep our focus on the ministry that Christ has enabled us to do in this place. With children, youth, adult studies, home groups, worship, fellowship, outreach....there is much to be done.
The first two weeks in November will also conclude our Friendship Days at Spirit of Joy. You have been encouraged to bring friends to our worship time together. At the end of the month long emphasis we will be giving a Thank You gift to the individual or family that has brought the most friends to worship. This is yet another way to ask you, the members, to be invitational. We have a wonderful congregational family, and we would like everyone to feel welcome to join us in praising our Lord.
As we move toward the end of the month, we will come together in worship on Wednesday evening, November 25th, 7pm for a Thanksgiving Celebration. This is always a time to invite your family and friends to worship as we give thanks for the many blessings that God has given us over this past year. The church is always decorated with a Harvest theme, and is a beautiful setting to share our gratitude and love for our Lord.
So, a time to reflect, a time to be thankful, and a time to receive the blessing of our Lord and Saviour.
See You Sunday... and please... invite a friend

“But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare. Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives”
—2 Peter 3:10-11
