Message Moments

Praise God for all the blessings of our life together.  We begin this new summer month of August with Vacation Bible School well underway.  What a tremendous outreach to the community, with many children throughout Ramona coming to Spirit of Joy to learn about Jesus' love for them.  This Sunday, August 5th, we will see a video presentation highlighting VBS this year at both services.  The children will be sharing their special songs learned throughout the week at our second service.

As we continue our life together this summer we are already gearing up for the fall season of ministry and activity.  Our Bible studies, Home Groups, Children and Youth Ministries, Men and Women's Fellowship are making plans for our kickoff for September.  On Sunday, September 9th we celebrate Rally Day. This is always our official start up of the fall season. The Men's Fellowship will provide a pancake breakfast, our Sunday School will be underway, and our Fellowship Team is planning a time together in the afternoon out at our building site. These days are always great opportunities for you to invite others to come and share in the joy that is ours in this church community.

Spirit of Joy is filled with activities and ministry for the entire family.  It is a very special place, as we learn and grow in our faith together.  The challenge for each of us is to take the joy and share and invite others.  Plan on being a part of this call to be invitational!

Many have asked where we are in the process of our construction.  We are compiling all the necessary information for the proposal to be submitted very soon to the Bank of Southern California, a local bank in Ramona.  Please pray that all of our information and efforts with collateral will be well received by the bank so that we can move forward.  

As we continue in these summer days, our worship each week continues at 8:15am and 10am.  Communion is always offered on the first and the third Sunday of every month.  Enjoy your vacations, but please remember that ministry continues each week throughout the year and we appreciate your commitment to our life together.

See you in church, Pastor Dan
