eNews Update
December 9, 2020
          We are into our Advent season, and anticipating the gift of the Christ Child this Christmas.  In the midst of these difficult times, we need community and each other.  Plan to worship with us in person each Sunday at 9am on the church property.  We are following all guidelines prescribed to churches, and we are doing everything possible to keep you safe. 
          On Christmas Eve we will celebrate in worship on the land at 7pm.  There will be options for your evening.  The tent will be placed such that you can be seated under the tent.  If you prefer the drive-in approach, the tent will be placed such that you can remain in your vehicle or sit outside.  Everyone is asked to bring their own chairs, and candle for the candle lighting at the conclusion of the service.  The evening will be beautiful, with wonderful decorations and lights to bring joy to our corner property, and everyone who worships with us.  We will have your favorite carols, special music, instrumentalists, and Christmas Message.  Plan now to be with us on Christmas Eve.  As we have throughout the pandemic, all services will be live streamed. If you are unable to, or uncomfortable worshipping in person, join us for the Christmas Eve service on YouTube and Facebook for the Christmas Eve Service. 
           Blessings as together we live in eager anticipation of the birth of our Lord and Saviour,

           Pastor Dan

We encourage your giving as we come to the end of this year.  As our treasurer has shared we would like to make up the giving to budget.  We invite you to give an extra month offering, or find a way to give additional offerings to the church to help us meet our goal.  We thank you always for your faithfulness and commitment to the life and ministry of Spirit of Joy.

Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.  Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.
~Psalm 24:7-10

All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying, He trusted on the Lord that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.
~Psalm 22:7-8
For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?  And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.
~Hebrews 1:5-6
     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.
