Message Moments

It I hard to believe that June is here and we are moving into our summer months and ministry schedule.  We are thankful for all of our volunteers each week who make the ministry at Spirit of Joy so vital and filled with outreach and purpose.

In June we have several important dates that include the entire congregation.

  • Annual BBQ, June 10, 1pm
    Please plan to share in our annual summer BBQ congregational picnic at Ramona Oaks Park, June 10th, 1pm.  You are invited to bring a side dish or dessert to share.  
  • Dinner & Bingo, June 23, 4:30pm
    Then on Saturday, June 23rd, the Youth will have a major fund raiser for youth ministry.  Bingo Night at Spirit of Joy will include a wonderful Italian dinner for the whole family, and a time of fellowship and Bingo.  Over the last month the youth have been collecting your unused gift cards and will be utilizing them as prizes during our bingo night.  There will also be a grand prize for the evening.  Plan to sign up and share in this great evening for everyone.
  • Worship, Sundays 8:15 & 10:00am
    Our worship schedule will remain the same throughout the summer days.  Each Sunday we will have our Spirited Traditional Service at 8:15am and our Contemporary Service at 10am.  
  • Summer Sunday School Hangouts, 10:00am
    Each week at the 10am Service we will be providing a Summer Sunday School "Hang-Out" time for all the children. 
  • Fathers Day, June 20
    on't forget Father's Day on June 20th.  Once again we will honor Father's in attendance that day. 
  • Make Worship a Priorty
    We hope that you will make Summer Worship a priority in your life
  • Congregational Meeting, June 24, 9:15am
    On Sunday, June 24th, between services at 9:15am we will have a Congregational Meeting to discuss the status of construction and completion of the church building.  This will be an informative time and a time to answer any questions you might have for the leadership.  Plan to attend this important meeting.
Looking forward to seeing you in worship, blessings always,
Pastor Dan
