~~~~~~~ 30 Minutes of Joy ~~~~~~~

Thatís the name of the new worship service we are going to try out on four Sundays in 2014. The service (which will start at 8am) will be short, non-liturgical, contemporary, and casual. The music will be somewhat "praise oriented," and we will use a portable keyboard as our main "instrument." We will welcome feedback from our attendees. We will still have our normal 9:15 services each week. These new services will be on January 26th, February 23rd, March 30th, and April 27th.  All are welcome.

~~~~~~~ Pentecost - June 8, 2014 ~~~~~~~


Soon it will be time to 'Prepent' at Community of Joy Lutheran Church. If you are not sure what 'Prepent" means, read the article published in the March issue of "The Lutheran", page 42 or click on the following link -  The Lutheran, p. 42


Holy Communion

We practice open communion weekly as we welcome all who honor Christ as their Savior to receive His true body and blood in our holy sacrament.  Both white grape juice and wine are offered.  Gluten-free wafers are available.  Children are invited forward for a blessing.  Our ushers will assist with any questions.
