Joy News


Here are your announcements for this week!

Luke 15:32, "But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found."

SPSC Prayer Request

Would you join the SPSC this week as Phase three (3) of our senior pastor search process continues to unfold, to pray over Psalm 55:22 ("Give your burdens to the Lord, and he will take care of you.  He will not permit the godly to slip and fall") and Psalm 56:8 ("You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.").  We are mindful of the journey that the Lord has taken Joy on the past three (3) years and the sacrifices and countless tears shed for the church.  May we continue to stand in the gap for our church during this period of time and never stop contending for and loving over our very own members fighting physical and emotional illnesses.
