It’s in our very name!

a congregation of the ELCA.evangelion - the Greek word in the New Testament, meaning to evangelize; proclaim the Gospel. It is mission, our common ministry, our baptismal vocation. It is NOT the job solely of a committee! We share the love and grace of Jesus Christ through service, worship, and fellowship. This is our mission. Praying, asking questions of our neighbors, seeking as we listen to their answers, with the idea that we might learn something. We seek to lead others to a relationship with Christ (or a deeper one). Maybe we will even be called by the Spirit to change the climate!
In a practical way, our Evangelism Ministry is intentional about making a good first impression. Hospitality is what we do best! We want our guests and new members to feel welcome, ready to “plug into” the various ministry possibilities we have at Joy.
We extend the Savior’s invitation to all whom we meet. Our Chairperson is Linda Jacobs, who can be contacted at (267) 701-9889 or e-mailed at JacobsDocandRx@aol.com.
