Annual Congregational Picnic
2014 Picnic

The annual Congregational Picnic and Summer Kick-off party will be at Ramona Oaks Park on Sunday, May 22. 

This is always a great event with good food, games, and recognition of best Sunday School Attendance for the year, often with surprise bonuses included. This recognition is always an encouragement and reminder of how important it is for our children to be involved in weekly Sunday School.

Don't miss this... whether you're new to Spirit of Joy or an old-timer, this is a great opportunity to make new friendships and deepen old ones.

Sign up on the kiosk to bring a side dish or dessert and then join the fun, food, fellowship, games for kids and adults, and new this year: swimming.

Put this on your calendar: More info to follow.

Easter Sunday worship and groundbreaking is hard to describe to those who weren't there. The Holy Spirit was manifest as we celebrated Jesus' resurrection through song, praise, worship and word. Click on the picture above to view the slide show. 


It was a busy Saturday at Highway 67 and Highland Valley Road. Our Easter Weekend kickoff was our annual Bunny Hop Easter Egg Hunt, which had its usual large attendance. And we had a special visit from the Easter Bunny, too. Check out these great photos. Click on the picture above to view the slide show.

SOJ Men's Fellowship

Quick: what is the most popular American spectator sport (based on actual attendance)? According to Forbes Magazine seventeen of the top 20 most-attended sporting events in the United States are NASCAR events (2014).  So how about you?

Some of Spirit of Joy's men are also car enthusiasts, from hotrods and classics to racing... including Chuck Snyder. Chuck's been looking at some opportunities to attend some hotrod and classic car events in Southern California and he's inviting interested SOJ folks to join him.

With his apologies for the late notice of this first event, Chuck would anyone to join him at "TV" Tommy Ivo's 80th birthday party this Saturday, April 16 at the National Hot Rod Association Motor Sports Museum in Pomona, CA.  Click here for more information about this event.

Other events Chuck is planning include visits to the incredible Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles and one of the Concours d'Elegance Auto Shows in Southern California. 

If you're interested in hotrods and classic autos and would like to join Chuck and other SOJ members at any of these events, call him at 619-787-6864 or email him at

Note: Tommy Ivo, also known as "TV Tommy" and "Instant Ivo" is an actor and drag racer, who was active in the 1960s racing community.
