A note from Pastor Rod:
We came to Joy knowing that the Holy Spirit was alive and moving within this congregation and have been amazed at the warmth and the love of this community of faith. Very quickly, we came to see Joy as our church home. I would invite you to come and be a guest of our church. See if this is a place that feeds your heart and your mind; and most importantly, draws you closer to God. We have found this is a good place to grow in our love for Christ… and you are most certainly welcome here!
