Message Moments

We begin this fall season with Rally Day on Sunday, September 9th.  The morning will include kick-off of our fall ministries, Sunday School and Breakfast provided by our Men's Fellowship.  Worship continues at 8:15am and 10am throughout the fall season.  In the afternoon we will share in a fellowship time out on our building property, 5pm.  This will be a time for conversation, hamburgers and hot dogs, games for the whole family, and a dunk tank!  A great time planned for everyone!

Home Groups begin the week of September 9th.  If you are currently in a home group you will be contacted and given a reminder of your day and time for meeting.  It is a time of fellowship, food, and devotion.  if you would like to sign up you can do so on Sunday mornings.

The Spirits of Grace are hosting a Beth Moore Simulcast.  Tickets are available at church or online.  Invite your friends for this inspirational day for women.  Cost is $20 and includes the program, continental breakfast and lunch.

Kids Klub begins on Tuesday, September 11th, 4-6pm every week.  The theme this fall is Shipwrecked, and is filled with great Bible verses, stories, crafts, food, and music.  Children pre-school through 6th grade are invited, and bring a friend.

Our Bible Studies begin in this autumn time too.  Women's Study on "Women of the Bible" begins on Monday, September 24th, 6:30pm.  The Monday Night Study on Luke begins, Monday, October 1, 6pm.  The Monday morning Bible Study on Luke begins October 22, 8am.  Join us for one of these studies.  It is so very important to our spiritual formation that we be in the Study of God's Word.

We look forward to everyone getting back into our fall schedule and hope that you will be committed to your worship life and the ministries of Spirit of Joy.

Blessings of encouragement, Pastor Dan

Home Groups Resume Week of September 9

Psalm 119:
Encouragement from King David

Even the most mature believers face dark nights of the soul. During those times, God feels distant, His Word dry, and the vibrant intimacy we knew before seems absent leaving us wondering, “Where is the Lord in this?” In Psalm 119, pastor Matt Chandler aims to introduce viewers to the words of King David who experienced similar seasons of life. Serving as the anchor for the study, Psalm 119 demonstrates the power of God's Word in the lives of believers and its ability to provide a warm blanket for the soul.
