Saturday Night Pilgrim Journey Service (Last Saturday of the Month) The Saturday evening Pilgrim Journey service format is a more Informal Worship Service of PRAYER and PRAISE. It will be followed by a PIZZA AND BYO Beverage FELLOWSHIP.

Just let us know how many slices you want and what kind. We will place the order, and the pizza will be ready after the service.
Tea and lemonade will be provided. If you’d prefer something of a different variety, please bring that with you. It can be kept cold in the church refrigerators, during the service. But, please use the provided cups for any adult beverages. Prayer - Praise (followed with fellowship & Pizza
Ash Wednesday & Mid-Week Lenten Services at Joy
The season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 1, with a service of the Imposition of Ashes at Joy. This service will be at 7 pm. On the five following Wednesday evenings, we will have a simple soup and sandwich supper together from 6 until 6:30 pm. Following dinner, we will have a brief service of worship using Holden Evening Prayer. The theme for these mid-week services will be Luther’s Major Treatises - one each Wednesday evening. The Freedom of a Christian / To the German Nobility / Bondage of the Will / Treatise on Good Works and Babylonian Captivity of the Church. This theme was chosen especially this year as we celebrate the 500th Anniversary of Luther’s 95 Thesis and the beginning of the Protestant Reformation.
Remember "....that you are dust and to dust you shall return."
