In 2018, the ministry of Spirit of Joy! Lutheran Church celebrated our twentieth year. As we look toward the future of our ministry, we are excited about what God has in store for us.
In March 2019, we launched the three-year Choose Joy! Capital Campaign. This campaign invites us to
- Become a congregation who invests more energy and funds on ministry outside of our building than in the building itself.
- Grow and strengthen our worship together and sense of community.
- Continue to offer the opportunity for people to encounter the love of Jesus and grow in faith.
- Think creatively and courageously about the future of our ministry and our service to others in our neighborhood and beyond.
The financial aspect of this campaign involves reducing – and reaching toward eliminating – the debt of our mortgage over the next three years.
- The base goal of the campaign is $230,000
- Our stretch goal is $275,000 – the remaining principle of our mortgage
- But what if? What if we raised $300,000 … or $400,000?? Imagine the ministry opportunities that would open up for us as we serve our neighbors!
