eNews Update
April 7, 2021
     We have just celebrated Easter and the Risen Christ with Sunrise Service and Celebration Service that included Brass Ensemble, Special Music, Favorite Easter Hymns, and Easter Message.  We encourage everyone to join us in person.  We are becoming even safer on the land, with vaccinations, and our protocol that has kept everyone feeling comfortable with worshiping in person.
     Come and join us on Sunday morning, as we worship our Lord at 9am every week on the land.  Over the past year we have had only two Sundays in which we were unable to worship in person due to rain.  God has blessed this time as a church family.  God has blessed us with the property so that we can worship in a safe environment.  We give thanks for the privilege of our worship together both in person and live streamed.
     As we look ahead, we thank you for your continued giving to both the ministry and the building fund.  We cannot stress enough your regular giving to both areas of our life together.   We have been sustained over the past months from those giving extra, and the PPP forgivable loans that we were able to receive.  Please consider your giving over and above to move our ministry forward in Ramona.
     We look forward to seeing you Sunday on the land.  We will continue to meet in person on the church property until the church council makes the decision to move back into the worship center safely.  

Blessings all in this Easter Season,

Pastor Dan

...if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
~Romans 10:9

For outreach ministry at Spirit of Joy we will be joining Project Mercy on Saturday, April 24th, for another house build for a family in Mexico.  We will build the home in pieces in Chula Vista (including the walls, stairs, and painting).  Thank you for your response - we now have all of the volunteers needed for this build!   It is a tremendous experience, and we are in collaboration with Lutheran Church of the Incarnation in Poway on this project. 
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me."
~John 14:6
     We are so thankful that we are able to gather in the back room of our church facility for meetings, Prayers and Squares, and Bible Studies!  Each group will be able to have a maximum of 8 persons at this time.  Everyone will receive a temperature check and be asked to wear a mask.  Each group meeting will be asked to use the cleaning agents available in the back room for cleaning after each gathering.  We look forward to having our gatherings, and ask that everyone follow the safety guidelines that have been in place at Spirit of Joy since we began our worship together on the church building site.  
Safety Procedure for Worship
We encourage your arrival between 8-8:45am for set up.  Everyone is encouraged to wear masks on entry and departure on the church property.  Bring your own chairs, pop-ups, umbrellas, and bottled water.  To insure your safety, we will have a table with prepackaged communion (1st and 3rd Sunday each month), bulletins (also a digital bulletin is available on your electronic devices), and temperature check.  Please practice social distancing of at least 6ft of separation per family unit.  Trash cans are available to dispose of all trash upon leaving.  If for any reason you are not feeling well, at higher risk, or uncomfortable with attending, we invite you to enjoy the service live-streamed.  If you prefer staying in your car, there will be a designated area for you to do so.
