Message Moments
 
   

     As we continue our journey through Lent we pray this is a time for reflection and contemplative prayer for everyone.  Each Wednesday evening during Lent we gather together for a brief devotional entitled "The Signs of Lent".  Our Soup Suppers are a tradition and everyone has enjoyed the time of fellowship as part of our walk in this Lenten Season.

     Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday when our expanded Festival Choir will bring the message of our Lent/Easter Season in music at both of our worship services.
     
     On Thursday of Holy Week you are invited to the Seder meal, a reenactment of the Passover.  The evening begins at 6pm and will include a potluck dinner following the service.  
     
     On Good Friday we will hear the Seven Last Words as we share in a Service of Shadows and darkening of the sanctuary as part of our worship.  The service begins at 7pm.  
     
     On Easter weekend we will invite the community to share in the annual Easter Egg Hunt on the building property beginning at 9am.  
     
     On Easter Sunday plan to come to the Easter Sunrise Service at 6:30pm on the property. We will then have two Easter Celebration Services at 8:15am and 10:00am at the church.  Easter Breakfast will be hosted by our Youth Ministry.  The services will include special music, choir, Easter Message, instruments, and the traditional invitation to sing the Hallelujah Chorus.  Plan to bring flowers from your garden for the Easter Cross.
     
     With all the plans for the Lent and Easter Season, our ministries of Bible Studies, Home Groups, Children's Ministry, Youth Ministry....and so much more are always happening at Spirit of Joy.  Keep up to date by visiting our web site.
     
     As we move forward with building and construction we are all aware that we are in need of additional funds to complete the project.  Get the word out to everyone.  Invite them to go to our gofundme.com/sojbuilding, and get on board with the funding for our project.  God is good and continues to clear a path for us to see the completion of the new building.
     
     May this be a season that we journey together and celebrate the empty cross, and our Risen Lord.

Lenten Blessings to you all,
Pastor Dan
