Confirmation Class 2018
Front Row: Ryan, Aiden, Marley, Athena, Ava,  Shannon, & Charlie
Back Row: Mikey Schuler, Pastor Dan, Nick Stemper

On Sunday, May 20 Spirit of Joy received the 2018 Communion Class. Each youth read their own personal testimony and scripture references. This annual event at Spirit of Joy culminates several weeks of meetings, discussion, and study that help them to understand, appreciate, and personally embrace the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We'd like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Mikey & Nick for their great work this year with our youth. More Confirmation pics at

Congregational Picnic June 10 1:00 pm

The annual Congregational Picnic and Summer Kick-off party will be at Ramona Oaks Park on Sunday, June 10, 1:00 PM.

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 this year: swimming.
