Run the Race with Endurance
We look at Hebrews 12:1–2:
"So then, with endurance, let’s also run the race that is laid out in front of us, since we have such a great cloud of witnesses surrounding us. Let’s throw off any extra baggage, get rid of the sin that trips us up, and fix our eyes on Jesus, faith’s pioneer and perfecter. He endured the cross, ignoring the shame, for the sake of the joy that was laid out in front of him, and sat down at the right side of God’s throne."

At New Joy, we are focused on...
New Joy Lutheran Church is a spirited community called by God to extend a radical welcome, share a generous grace, nurture a transforming faith, and live God’s promise.
The Truth is...
that we don’t always believe confidently, or pray wholeheartedly, or serve selflessly on our own. Yet, when we come together in community we draw out the best in each other and in ourselves, lean on the faith of our sisters and brothers, and seek the goodness of God for ourselves and for the world that God so loves.
Full of belief or doubt, confidence or questions? There is a place for you at New Joy. The people of New Joy are newcomers to Christianity and interfaith families, lifelong active church goers and people who have spent decades away from the church before finding their way to New Joy. There is a place for you at New Joy, too.
New Joy was established just in 2002. As a congregation we’re still growing up. You might say we’re in our awkward adolescence. We haven’t figured everything out. We’re having fun as we grow and as we see what God is putting before us. We hope you’ll be part of our future.
What's Faith 5?
Each week worshipers go home with a simple outline for daily prayer and faith conversation at home. Share highs and lows, read a Scripture verse or a whole passage or a story from a children’s Bible, talk about what you’ve just read, pray, and bless one another. It’s called the Faith 5, and we encourage friends and neighbors of New Joy to do the Faith 5 at home during week.
