Spirit of Joy History

Spirit of Joy Lutheran Church was organized on November 6, 1994. The church began meeting at the home of Pastor Dan and Karyn Erlenbusch, then in a small shoe store in old town Ramona, and now at their present site of renovation for worship and classrooms at 1735 Main Street, Ramona, CA.

We are at the crossroads in a tremendous journey at Spirit of Joy as we look to the next few years of building a new church on our property at the corner of Highway 67 and Highland Valley Road (click here for more information.).

Here at Spirit of Joy we declare a community of faith for all people as we serve and grow together in trust in and relationship with God, proclaim and study the living Gospel of Jesus Christ and rejoice in His presence, and celebrate God's grace and love in this incredible adventure of fellowship with God.
