Grace.Forward! – 3/14/2019

Hey, Grace’rs


Countdown to our 15th anniversary:
Grace Moment #13

January 15/16, 2005

Walt Kallestad, Sr. Pastor of Community Church of Joy, and Pastor Tim, officially announce the vision for a new church start at Joy’s weekend worship services.


This weekend: We look at how grace moves us forward into our neighborhoods and into the lives of our neighbors with the love of Jesus as we focus on the story of the Good Samaritan.  Families with last names starting with L-R have the food table.

Our After Saturday@5 Dinner menu this week: Walking Tacos!  Just $2 per person/$5 per family!

If you didn’t have a chance to hear Pastor Tim’s message on God’s invitation to us to get out of the boat, walk on water, and do something extraordinary as we get ready to celebrate our 15th anniversary in March 2020, you can view the message here.
