Christianity is true. This being so, you would expect to see evidence of its truth staring you in the face everywhere you turn. So why do so many people miss it? Part of the secret is learning to ask the right questions. For example:
None of these questions is answerable from outside the Biblical worldview. The postmodern generation is suspicious of people with answers. So maybe, first, we should just be the people with questions.

We have just celebrated the glorious resurrection of our Lord. What an incredible day with Easter Sunrise on our building property, and 8: 15am and 9:45am services of holy communion, special music, and message. Being able to gather together, and invite the community to share in our worship is a wonderful opportunity, and we are glad for all who come to share in this Festival Day with us. Thank you also to our young people who provided a continental breakfast throughout the morning.
Now we begin our spring season too at Spirit of Joy, with worship each Sunday at 8: 15am (spirited-traditional), and 9:45am (contemporary). Our worship services are filling up, how good it is to see so many committed to their worship life on Sunday morning. And how great it is to see so many new faces and visitors at Spirit of Joy! These are exciting times in our lives together as we begin to see major progress in building on Highland Valley and Highway 67. The month of April continues in ministries to children, youth, adults, Bible Studies, men's and women's fellowship, and special activities. We look forward to the Variety Night and ice cream social on Sunday April 21. This should be a wonderful time for everyone to come and enjoy the entertainment .... you will not want to miss this event!!
We look ahead to Mother's Day in May, and remind everyone of the special recognition we have each year for all of the women of Spirit of Joy, and hope that you will make this a Sunday to celebrate the family. How important it is to make our time together each week, each Sunday, a priority in your lives. We look forward to joining with you in praise of our Resurrected Lord in this Easter Season.
See You Sunday!
