About Spirit of Joy Lutheran Church
We are an open, affirming, and joy-filled faith family. We have been an ELCA congregation for 21 years, have over 200 members, and a weekend worship attendance of 115. We dedicated our church campus in 2012 after spending our early years as renters at a Seventh-Day Adventist Church and then a strip mall. We are very involved in social ministries (food bank, backpacks for food-insecure students, free clinic, clothing exchange, hot meals at the local mission, disaster relief, partnering with a new congregation, campus ministry, world hunger).

MINISTRIES AND GROUPS
Groups and Public Services
Weddings and Receptions
We are the new host congregation for the Religion and Science Lectures (each February). On our campus are housed a children's free clinic (open the first Saturday of each month from 9:00am to Noon) and a children's clothing exchange (open every Saturday from 9:00am to Noon).
All worship services, special events (like the ice cream social, fashion show & tea, and dinner musical), and ministries are open to the public. We have several ministry volunteers who are not members of our congregation.
We are a credal church, professing the Apostles', Nicene, and Athanasian Creeds. As Lutherans, we believe in: Grace Alone. Word Alone. Faith Alone. We believe that salvation is a gift of God's grace, given because of who God is rather than how good we are.
