Message Moments

What a tremendous season this has been for us at Spirit of Joy.  We began with our Ash Wednesday Service and moved into our Soup Suppers which were well attended throughout the Lenten Season. Our Music director, Bryce Harrison, provided special music on two Sundays: with Mission Vista High School Advanced Choir in performance at worship, and our Expanded Festival Choir bringing the message in music, 'The Lamb" on Palm Sunday.  We had the reenactment of the Passover Meal, our Good Friday worship, Easter Egg Hunt, and three glorious Worship experiences on Easter as we celebrated the Risen Christ. Thank you to all who provided so many volunteer hours in preparation for and during our Lenten and Easter Season.  We are blessed with so many willing to serve at Spirit of Joy.

The month of April will bring to us opportunities to worship, study God's Word, enjoy fellowship in Home Groups, provide ministry to our children and youth, and continue to grow in our care and concern for one another as God's community of faith.  We encourage you to share in our worship together, 8;15am and 10;00am, such a critical part of our life as God's people.  In May we will have recognition on Mother's Day, May 13th. Young people who have been through our confirmation program will reaffirm their baptism on Confirmation Sunday, May 20th.

In the coming days, plan to stop by the property and construction site.  Final preparations are being made for completion of all site work, including the completion of the parking lot.  This will give everyone a blueprint for the remainder of the construction over these next months.  Please keep everyone involved in the construction, the finances,, and the building committee in prayer. May God continue to open the door for us to move forward.
