We begin these December days with hope and the light of Christ who is coming into the world. We are grateful for our life together and the ministry that goes on every day in our midst at Spirit of Joy.
December 3rd: We will share in traditional and contemporary worship, receive Holy Communion, and have our congregational meeting at 9:30am to approve the 2018 budget, and affirm the nominations for our church council. Click here to preview the proposed budget.
December 10: Will be a time of worship with our festival choir bringing the message of Christmas in music at both worship hours. We will gather together at 5pm for appetizers at the home of Jessica Parkers family, and then on to the church for dinner dessert, some fun games, and a visit from Santa.
December 17: Our third Sunday in Advent will include traditional and contemporary communion services as we prepare the way of our Lord at Christmas.
December 24: Our Christmas Eve Services begin with a traditional worship at 9am, a Family Worship with the children sharing the message of a "Caribbean Christmas" at 5pm, and then at 7pm our traditional Candlelight Communion service with special music, instruments, and Christmas Message.
December 31: We will worship at 8:15am and 10am on this last day of 2017. A great way to thank God for the blessings of this past year and to look forward to all that is in store for us in 2018.
Please take a look at our church calendar on a weekly basis. All of our ministries and schedules are highlighted: home groups, fellowship groups, children and youth ministries, Bible Studies, and so much more. Plan to participate and get involved.
We ask for your prayers as we continue to look to God to bless our efforts in building at Highland Valley Rd. and Highway 67. This has been a challenge over the years, and we pray God's continued direction and blessings.
Praying for you in this Advent Season
and wishing you a Merry Christmas,
