It’s “that” time of year again.  The Sing for Joy Choir and the Joy Boys Singing Group will once again be washing cars for free on 

Maundy Thursday, April 2nd. from

11 a.m. to 1p.m.

 (weather permitting).

This is our way of illustrating the way Jesus washed the feet of his disciples who walked everywhere. Since we use our cars today as our major mode of transportation, it is only appropriate to wash cars!  Come to have your car washed.  While you’re at it, tell your friends to come and have their car washed too! 

“Spring Fling”
It’s not too early to think about donating items to the "Annual Community of Joy Church Garage Sale", so when you do your spring cleaning, don’t fling anything away…box it or bag it and save it! The annual sale will be Friday and Saturday, October 2nd and 3rd. If you’re going to be away for the summer and/or early fall or have large items that you cannot handle, please call Karen Sterzik (922-0465). Storage is available beginning in May.
In order to run a successful sale, we need a lot of donated goods. Please encourage your friends, neighbors, business associates, and fellow club members to contribute their items as well. We offer tax deduction forms. All of the proceeds will go to local charities; the unsold items also will benefit a local charity. We do not accept clothing, shoes or tube televisions.
Thanks in advance for your support of this annual event; let’s make it a great success. There will be plenty of opportunities to volunteer, but meanwhile, clean out those cabinets and closets, under the bed, the garage, the shed….
Questions or comments? Call Sue Dawson (538-4643).

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.
