Welcome to New Joy Lutheran
9:30 am Worship
All groups gathering indoors at New Joy are required to wear masks. Please bring a mask with you to worship on Sundays. If you forget, don't worry about it! We have disposable masks available as you come into the building. If you test positive for COVID after having recently attended worship or a gathering at New Joy, please let Pastor Chris know so that we can conduct appropriate contract tracing and notification.
As we have for the past many months, let us continue to be flexible and adaptable to changing circumstances surrounding the pandemic. We will continually re-evaluate our safety measures, and we will make changes to our protocols as conditions allow or necessitate, out of Christian care for our neighbors.
ALSO, our Livestream will continue to be an option for worship at home.

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.
