Our worship services are expressive, open to all, and full of the presence of the LORD. Our goal is to glorify God in our meetings and meet your needs with his Word. Spirit of Joy is diverse in age and ethnic and social origin, but we are united by love for Jesus Christ our Savior.

Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan's Purse International Relief Ministries. It's mission is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Since 1993 OCC has delivered over 100,000,000 shoe boxes full of gifts to children around the world.
Pick up your shoe box with instructions between services.
In the meantime, begin collecting small toys, puzzles and colored pencils. Perhaps you can find a nice TShirt to include in the box. A game of checkers or a yo-yo would also be fun. And don't forget simple sanitary items: toothpaste, toothbrush, comb.
Don’t forget that you can put a photo of yourself or your family and maybe a letter in the box – maybe a postcard that shows San Diego would be interesting, too. Click here for more gift suggestions and packing instructions.
Also, remember to pray for the child who will receive your shoe box.
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.”
