REEMINDER: On Sunday, May 3 we'll have only one single worship service at 9:00am.

This worship and victory celebration culminates our Glorious Unfolding Capital Stewardship Campaign. 

So please bring the first installment of your 3-year commitment. We're also asking everyone who can to make an additional cash gift to help us meet our goal of $150,000 in actual cash gifts on Sunday, May 3.

We sincerely thank all of you who have prayerfully helped our Glorious Unfolding Stewardship Campaign through your contributions of time, talent, and tithes.

However, Sunday represents only the first milestone in our Glorious Unfolding Building Program. The next milestone will be obtaining the required construction loan, followed by our ground breaking. We look forward with great anticipation to many more exciting program milestones.

The Construction Dinner was both memorable and productive. In addition to all of the commitment cards collected, our three drawings earned $242. The original oil painting donated by Bob Alexander went to Chris Gehler, the 1-year reserved parking to Karen Dietmeyer, and the novel to Ava Kendzor.  Click on the photo above to view our new slide show of our Construction Dinner on April 19.

P&S is a group of ladies who get together on Tuesdays to help make quilts for those in need.  Anyone can come to our ladies group here at Spirit of Joy Church.   It is a rewarding “ministry” to be part of.   We have had many ladies join us who have never made a quilt or haven’t sewed for many years.   They come in and give it a try, and...
