New Joy is committed to Growing Deeper, Reaching Wider in our community.
We welcome you to join us for any of the events listed on the schedule below.
Our Community Outreach
Open Doors of Westfield
We continue to be a strategic partner with Open Doors of Westfield. They work to improve the quality of life for Washington Township residents through food and clothing assistance, referral to community services, and spiritual guidance.
Family Promise of Hamilton County
We have committed to help Family Promise, an organization committed to lifting families in our county out of homelessness. Family Promise recognizes that families experiencing homelessness in Hamilton County are in need of services including temporary housing, meals, transportation, financial literacy education, job placement assistance, mentoring, and affordable housing.
New Joy Lutheran Church is pleased to offer Christian Preschool for 3 & 4-year-olds living in the Carmel/Westfield area. We believe that children learn academic readiness skills, motor skills language/communication and social behavioral skills when their bodies and their brains are ready. At New Joy Preschool it’s not about academic drill and practice, it’s all about play, play, play with the incorporation of skill building within the play-based activities.

We continue to look to partner with organizations to facilitate mission trips each year for members of the congregation, broadly focused under the umbrella of food and families.
Scouts BSA Troops
New Joy has two chartered Scouts BSA Troops, 1910 & 1920. The vision of the Scouting program is to prepare every eligible youth to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law. Our troops plan to fulfill this mission through an integrated approach to scouting that creates a unique environment where male and female youth can scout in a nearly co-ed format while each troop maintains a separate leadership structure.
Food 4 Souls
Food 4 Souls serves our homeless community with unconditional love and acceptance by providing hope in Christ, meeting daily needs and aligning resources to those who are ready to move into a life beyond homeless.
The mission of Zanmi Fondwa is to help families find stability through housing, education, and economic development and one of the ways they live this mission is to hire local people to build stable houses for those in the community. New Joy traveled and worked with Zanmi Fondwa on their 2019 Mission Trip to Haiti.
Habitat for Humanity
We are building a partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Indy supporting their building projects in Central Indiana throughout the year. Their mission is to seek to put God’s love into action by building strength, stability, and self- reliance through home ownership.
