      It is with such gratitude that we continue to worship on the church property every week.  We have been blessed with new families in worship that have come to enjoy our church congregation over these past months.  We encourage you to invite others, sharing with them that it is truly a safe place to worship God and to hear His word proclaimed each week.  As we look ahead, please come and worship in person at 9am.  All services are also live-streamed.  We believe that we will be live-streaming even when we are completely past the protocol in place during the pandemic.  Families have been grateful for the live-stream as they have not been able to attend.  We have also reached others throughout the United States that have tuned in on Sunday mornings. 
     God has blessed Spirit of Joy with a caring, loving church family.  As we continue to move forward post-pandemic, may God bless us in this community so that we can be the voice and beacon of light in difficult times. Sunday,      May 30th, we will commemorate Memorial Day with special music, hymns, and praise songs.  Come and join us.
  Blessings to you always, 

    Pastor Dan

Hello Church Family,
Throughout the month of May, Spirit of Joy will be collecting children/youth Christian books.  Please bring any new or like-new books that you would like to donate.  In June we will host a Christian Book Drive-Through and hope to distribute as many books as we can to the children in our congregation and maybe all of Ramona!  Any Christian book appropriate for ages infants through 14 are welcome.  Thank you so much, and hopefully we can reach a lot of children with a gift of a book, and invite them to worship with us!  If you have any questions please speak with Jessica Parker or Jennifer Emerick.
Please donate books by:
  1. Dropping them in the collections box each week at our outdoor service.
  2. Dropping them in the collections box at the church office during office hours.
  3. Calling Christy Serra at 760-917-1023 to arrange a time for pick up at your house.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
~Proverbs 3:5-6

Men's Weekly Breakfast continues every Thursday, 8am, at Denny's in Ramona.

We have no specific agenda except to get to know other Christian men in an informal gathering.

We hope you can join us.

We are grateful for all ministries at Spirit of Joy meeting in the back room of our church facility.  Each of our groups can meet currently with a maximum of 8 persons.  We continue temperature checks, and everyone is asked to wear a mask.  Cleaning is requested after each group meets.  We are moving closer to opening up our facility to more opportunities.  Thank you for your dedication to the protocols that have been in place for Spirit of Joy gatherings.
Check out ways you can support Spirit of Joy's ministry!
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.
