Pastor Dan's Message
  Pastor Dan teaching Monday Bible Study
   
We continue in this beautiful fall season at Spirit of Joy. This Sunday, November 2, we will celebrate our 20 years of life together. In worship and at our evening gala event, we will have the opportunity to give thanks to God for the ministry and activity that has been going on in this Ramona store front for over 20 years.
The 20th Anniversary event will be held at the San Vicente Inn, with over 140 persons having made reservations. The evening will include opening prayer, dinner, no host bar, dancing, introduction of charter members, opportunity basket give away,  sacred music by Bryce Harrison and Joan Brown, special cake created by Marina Martin, and great fellowship and conversation.  Thank you to Bill and Nancy Clark, and Mike Schuler for their service on the anniversary task force, and helping to make all of this special for us.
On Sunday, November 9th, we will gather in worship to celebrate our commitments for the 2015 year.  This is a time for each of us to come forward and place our financial commitment, our love response to our Lord, on the altar.  Plan to make this a vital part of your worship experience.  It is so important that each of us makes that commitment to the life and ministry of Jesus in this place.
Throughout the month our worship will continue at 8:15am and 9:45am. Communion is always celebrated on the first and third sunday of the month.  We also provide Sunday School at both hours.  Invite others to share the joy.
On Wednesday evening, November 26, 7pm we will come together in worship to give thanks. This Thanksgiving Eve Service will be a time for us to share in worship, communion, and sharing in our blessings and gratitude for this past year.  We are always so grateful for the harvest decorations in our worship center provided by the Popmas.  Come and give thanks!
We are hoping to receive news concerning building, county hearing, and future plans.  Please keep this in prayer and get ready to celebrate and break ground!
