Presented by Spirit of Joy Festival Choir

Members and Non-members  joyfully  welcomed! This powerful, multi media presentation is sure to be a highlight of your Holy Week experiences.

Music by Choirs and Congregation will reflect upon and respond to readings of The Seven Last Words of Jesus during our 7:00 PM Good Friday service.

Bryce and Britany will again lead music at the 6:30 AM Easter Sunrise Service on the land, March 27.

Festival Choir, Praise Team, and Brass Ensemble are preparing music for 10:00 AM Easter worship as well as our long awaited Groundbreaking Ceremony.The 21 day countdown to Groundbreaking has begun!

Thank you to our Church Council for their support of purchasing a quality, portable  sound system that will not only be used for outdoor events but, together with parts of our current sound system, will also enhance our Sunday morning worship services.  We are grateful to Danny Donnelly, Bryce Harrison, and Scott Brown for their efforts to set up the system, which will be a welcome addition in our permanent church residence.

Praise the Lord for the days He gives us to let His light shine through us!
Joan Brown, Director of Music
Land Cleanup This Saturday

We still need help this Saturday, March 12, to clean up on the Land... getting ready for our big Easter Sunday celebrations.

We have a long tradition at Spirit of Joy of taking care of our land. These old photos reflect this tradition. Jean and Keith Merrick and Tony Prasher were few of the many who showed up in 1997 to plant the trees near the north end of the Land close to Highland Valley Road. And yes... the trees are still there!

If you can join us, notify Dave Hickman at that you will be on the land at 9am on Saturday, March 12.

Or you can just show up!  

We'd love to have you.
