God's Abundance Part 1
Over the next three weeks we will take a journey together on digging deep into the true meaning of stewardship. For some churches, “stewardship” has become a taboo word because it stirs up thoughts of the church only wanting our money. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. Stewardship is about all of life and our relationship with God. Let’s think about stewardship as we “get to” share all that God has given us instead of we “have to.”
October 27th – “Abundant and Grounded”


Reformation Sunday
This Sunday we commemorate one of the most significant events in history in the church, the Protestant Reformation. In 1517 Martin Luther nailed the 95 Theses to the church in Wittenburg, Germany leading to the beginning of Lutheran Christianity and the heart of our theology of being saved by grace. Wear Red if you'd like.
We Are Rockwall is Nov. 23rd
The people of Joy will participate in the We Are Rockwall Thanksgiving meal on November 23rd. We are collecting socks and gloves for winter both for children and adults. Drop them off in the basket at Joy by November 17th. Thank you for your generosity!
