SERVICE INFORMATION
Our service is a mix of the traditional Lutheran service structure with contemporary music. Yes, we have drums and guitars for Joyful praise. Yes, we have Scripture and Gospel Readings and we have Communion every other week. For Communion we invite all to come forward. If you are a confirmed Lutheran, please receive communion, if you just want a personal blessing, please fold your arms so we know. 
WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS? 
We are very family friendly at Joy. We encourage kids of all ages in our church throughout the entire Service. Kids make noise, we know, and we’re completely ok with that! Kid’s coloring bags with crayons and coloring sheets are located outside of our sanctuary to keep them busy in church. We have a children’s message right before the Sermon. We also have a Nursery and Cry Room located directly off the sanctuary if your little ones are just a bit too enthusiastic! Our Nursery does not have a care provider, so we ask you stay in the room with your children, but our service is broadcast in the room so you don’t miss anything. 
WHAT DO I WEAR? 
You can wear whatever you’re comfortable worshiping in. Some members come in their Sunday Best while others come in jeans. It really doesn’t matter because we’re not here to judge, we’re here to hear God’s word, receive his Blessing and praise him. Seriously, come as you are. 
WILL I BE SINGLED OUT AS A GUEST? 
No. Never, that’s just awkward. You might get a welcome hug though, some of our members are pretty friendly. 
DO I HAVE TO BE BAPTIZED? 
Again, no. Everyone is Welcome at Joy. 
WHERE DO I SIT? 
We don’t have assigned seats, sit where you like. We only ask you fill out the red information books which are passed around during service so we know you were there.
DO I HAVE TO GIVE AN OFFERING? 
You don’t have to give anything, God’s love is free and so is our service. Just enjoy the community and music. Maybe have a doughnut, they’re free too.
