Singing with the Kids at VBS
 
October is always a wonderful month of welcoming the fall season in Ramona.  One of the great things about our community is that we really do feel the change of seasons.  With that change, we have so much that is going on in our midst as a congregational family.
The month of October welcomes so much to our worship life with both traditional and contemporary praise services.  Our Sunday School is well established at both worship hours.  We are so grateful for all of our teachers and helpers that make the experience for our children such a time of learning and welcoming Jesus into their hearts.  The children have chosen!!! Our Rally Day service outreach project for the children was through Heifer International.  With the money that was given over the past two weeks the children have chosen to donate TWO Water Buffalos to Heifer International.  Thanks to all that have made that possible.  A reminder that we continue to give our pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters to "Pennies for Magdalena"  We have been supporting Magdalena for several years.  Take time to read her letters to us...posted on the kiosk.
We are so fortunate to have the CalBaptist Choir Ensemble "Grace" with us once again this year.  They will be an integral part of our worship at both services on October 5th.  We are grateful for their talents and their leadership in our worship services.  Plan to bring friends and family to share in this tremendous worship experience.
We are welcoming new folks each week to the life of our congregation.  If you know of someone without a church, someone who is searching, and wanting something more in their lives....invite them to join you at Spirit of Joy in worship or Bible Study.  This is our great commission, and we can be an encouragement to others in the call to this mission in our lives.
We have launched our HomeGroups, and they are going spectacularly!!!!  Bible Studies have begun, and we want to remind everyone of the opportunities.  Mens Bible Study meets the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month.  Womens Study is on the 1st Wed. of every month beginning October 1st.  The studies on Monday are at 7am and 7pm and begin on October 6th.  All of us need to be in the continued study of God's Word.  
I would like to highlight the Anniversary Event for Spirit of Joy.  The evening celebration will be at the San Vicente Room out at the San Vicente Golf Club.  The evening will include a catered dinner, dance, festivities, and no host bar.  The celebration is for the whole family.  We will have welcome, dinner, introductions of charter members, special music, dance, and concluding benediction.  The evening will begin promptly at 5pm.  Tickets are only $12 per person, and we hope that every family will make this a priority.  These are great times in the life of the church, and we need to CELEBRATE our life together!

Cal Baptist Choir

The talented and good looking Cal Baptist University Small Choir will perform for us at both services this Sunday, October 5. Their accomplished performance last year received rave reviews.  This would be a great opportunity to invite your friends and neighbors to join us at Spirit of Joy. We'd love to have you meet them.
