We have moved into the month of May with our spring season at Spirit of Joy going forward. We continue our studies with Women and Men's fellowship, Monday Bible studies, and our Home Groups meeting with the theme "Unstuck".

The children and youth meet on a weekly basis with program, study, and incredible fellowship together.

Our worship life will include some very special Sundays in May. 

  • On May 7th, children who have completed the First Communion Classes will receive their First Communion in worship with their families.  Each young person will receive a gift from Spirit of Joy to commemorate this great day in their faith journey. 
  • On Sunday, May 14th, we will celebrate Mothers Day and the gift of the family.  Gifts will be given to all who attend.  Plan to share in this wonderful day in the life of the church. Once again we will share in our Memorial Day service with recognition and special music in our worship.
  • Please plan on attending the congregational meeting set for 9:30am, Sunday, May 21st.   This meeting will be a time to update everyone on the construction taking place and our building project.  Along with this update, we will also be sharing where we are headed with staffing our ministry at Spirit of Joy.  This is an important time for us, so please make every effort to attend.  

As we continue to move forward with all that we do together in ministry, I want to encourage you to be an active participant in worship and ministry at Spirit of Joy.  As we look ahead to building on our property, every one of us is needed to make the ministry complete.  How critical it is for us to be invitational.  We all have those in our lives that are just waiting to be invited to worship.  Plan on doing just that....invite a family member, a friend, a neighbor, to come and catch the vision that God has placed before us in this community.

See you Sunday. Pastor Dan

It looks like they are just about laying all the underground stuff. Soon they'll be filling it all in and we can start on the foundation.?  Harvey Payne, 21 Apr 2017,

They are filling in the holes, so soon we'll be able to start laying the foundation. At least, that's what I think will happen next. Let's not get ahead of ourselves. Enjoy this footage of filling in the holes.  Harvey Payne, 28 Apr 2017

Since the first San Diego Stand Down was created in 1988  it has become a national model to assist homeless veterans. There are now over 200 Stand Down events nation-wide.

This year's Stand Down at San Diego High School on July 21-23 is looking for 2,500 volunteers. This is a great opportunity to get together with family and friends and make a valuable contribution to those in need.
