Pastors Message

Welcome in the name of Christ!

We are a JOYful congregation, with a mission to share the love and grace of Jesus Christ through service, worship, and fellowship. It is our vision, with the love of Christ, to listen to others, learn about them, and lead them to a relationship with Christ (or a deeper one). Here at Joy, you will find an active, vibrant group of people who extend hospitality to all whom they meet. We are grounded in a Lutheran tradition, but not bound by it. We come from all over the place, geographically as well as in church background. We are always on the lookout for places in our surrounding communities where we can serve. We wish to form and cultivate new relationships through our discipleship and witness.

We invite you to be our guest in worship, at a fellowship event, or in lending a helping hand in our outreach efforts. There is Good News, and an abundant life to be shared here!

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Arthur Wuertz
