Message Moments

We begin our summer schedule as we celebrate the end of the school year, graduations, and all the joy that the summer days bring to us.

Looking at June we are grateful for the ministries that make for a great community of faith.  Thankful for our studies that include Monday Bible Studies, Men and Women's Study, and our incredible Home Groups.  Monday evening Bible Study at 6pm will continue throughout the summer months, and our Women's Study begins again on June 3, 6:30pm.  

Our youth are planning an evening of spaghetti and bingo.  All of the proceeds go to our youth ministry program to help with scholarships and funding for various retreats and events. Plan to come and share in this time of fellowship, food, and fun, Saturday, June 8th, 5pm.  

Our Worship will continue at both 8:15am and 10:00am throughout the summer months.  On Sunday, June 16th, we will have Father's Day Recognition  We also encourage our families to let us know of graduations by filling out the Graduation list on the kiosk.

A reminder to families with children interested in their first Communion.  The First Communion classes will be held on Monday, June 3 and 10, 6:30pm at the church. They last for approximately 45 minutes.  Let us know if your children plan to attend.

As we begin these days of summer, plan to make your worship life and your involvement at Spirit of Joy a priority in your life.  As you make time for vacation, remember that the ministry of the church continues every day and we need your prayers and your benevolent support.

Blessings, Pastor Dan
