Reflections Simple JOY


"JOY is a living, growing community of Jesus' followers spreading His love."

Life change happens best in small groups. Group activities are one way to grow closer with people who have similar interests, skills, and pursuits. As we function within a group, we also grow closer to God and become more intuned to His desires for us and what we can do for our church and community.

Adult Bible Discovery and Children's Sunday School classes are held on Sunday mornings starting at 9:15am.

Children's Church is a wonderful way for your child to worship through appropriate age-related materials. This is held during the Sunday morning Worship service which begins at 10:30am. Children learn about the Bible and sing songs, make crafts, or play games related to the day's topic. Children in grades 1 - 5 are welcome to attend. Click for some pictures...

Growing Bibles
Holy Bible How can you grow a Bible? By passing it on and on, from one person to another, like seeds spread in a field.

JOY is making an effort to put Bibles in the hands of people to share the joy of God's Word with them. And, as they read these Bibles and grow in their relationship with God and His Son, Jesus, we hope and pray they eventually pass their copies to others they know or meet - people like friends, coworkers, neighbors, or strangers whose lives may be hurting, lonely, or meaningless.

JOY has Bibles available on Sundays and at its office location at 16007-E Ave. D Channelview, TX 77530. If we run out, we'll get more as long as we are able to. Our plans are to have a few Bibles at every outreach event we do for the community. JOY members can help by donating Bibles or $3.00 to buy a new one.

Pastor John's new member class is called NEXT STEP. When new people come through JOY's doors and begin attending regularly, they can enroll in the NEXT STEP class where they can hear about the church's teachings and JOY's mission. This class not only provides information for the new person, but can also serve as the "next step" in becoming a member at JOY.

Life Groups
These groups are small, therefore there is more personal interaction, much more opportunity to ask questions and make comments as we look at God's Word together. This is a group you can join, and you will be missed when you can't come; there is a higher level of prayer and care in LIFE GROUPS. Donna Eichberger, who is JOY's Growing Minister leader, oversees the formation of groups and will gladly help anyone find a group. Donna can be contacted at .
