This is an EVANGELICAL Lutheran Church. The word “evangelical” simply means “proclaiming the Gospel (Good News)”.  
We are ALL evangelists!!
It is NOT just a ministry of a few to “do” evangelism.
We have been brainstorming ideas and would love your input. We would like to come up with a vision statement to go along with our mission statement, which is: “Sharing Christ’s love with all through worship, service and fellowship.”

    How about this for a vision: “To spread God’s joy”. I hope this generates ongoing dialogue among us, whether in person or virtually!

What follows are some thoughts on evangelism at Joy (pre- and post-Covid 19): 

  1. Continue to see church through the eyes of a first-time guest.
  2. If we average only two of every ten guests becoming active, our attendance will likely grow. We can get to know them, find out what their passions are, point them in the right direction to use their gifts here.
  3. Any idea for an event to have here. Maybe an “Open House” some Saturday, where we could offer food, tours of the “campus”, key Ministry people on hand to talk about our mission. Get the input of guests, based on what they see, potential of our location.
