What We're Like
Hopefully when you encounter someone who’s part of Joy! Church, you’ll be able to sense the joy, love, grace and mercy of God. At our gatherings, you will find unconditional love, acceptance and forgiveness. However, true love and true mercy don’t stop there. You can also expect to find a culture doing its best to follow the Kingdom path of personal responsibility, and setting high expectations for growing in Christ’s ways and likeness. Fueled by a loving God’s faith, hope and love, we talk normally and, in love, embrace, admonish and speak truth to one another.
About Our Worship Services
You’ll likely find us to be warm, friendly and inviting. Each Sunday service tends to stand on its own, and one Sunday likely will be different from the next one ☺.
Our worship service starts at 9:30 and goes until about noon. People are welcome to come and go as their time allows. The 9:30 portion is open to all, and all ages. We dedicate time to host the presence of God, to invite Holy Spirit and His ministry.
At 10:30ish we usually shift into praise and worship, teaching and discussion, and then a light lunch or snacks. 10:30 is when Kid’s Church starts too!

So… are you a church, a ministry, a non-profit, a business – or what?
We’re all those—in the making. The Kingdom of God transcends, pervades and prospers every type of enterprise. We exist to create followers of Christ. We serve and build up people, leaders and enterprises. Our vision and intent is to start, and partner with, many pastorates, churches, and even other entities beyond the church world.
We simply follow the model of the most successful enterprise in history: The first-century, Christ-following church—its founders, principles and methods. We’ll initially look to the books of Colossians, Ephesians and Acts for guidance. Given federal, state and local laws we felt it necessary to long ago become a base from a church and non-profit 501(C)(3) corporation, which we are.
What brand or denomination are you?
We are trans-denominational. Key to our charter is serving and uniting the wider local church beyond Joy! Church. Second only to the home, the local church holds the greatest potential to change our society and culture for good. As we build up and unite our region’s diversified community of ministries, so will our region and culture prosper in all ways. There is an old adage: “In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity”. We can’t say it better.
