Welcome to JOY!
We are delighted that you’ve discovered us! JOY Metropolitan Community Church is a church where ALL people are welcome and where you are free to be exactly as God has created you to be. We are a growing spiritual community reaching out in God’s radically inclusive love.
We are a church on the move! Exciting things are happening around here and we’d love for you to be a part of it. As you peruse the website, we hope you’ll discover ways in which to worship and connect as well as find opportunities to be filled and be informed. We worship on Sunday mornings at 10AM. We hope you’ll join us then or during our other programming opportunities throughout the week.
We’ve claimed as our theme for the year: Imagining with JOY, and our prayer, taken from the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Ephesians is simply this:
“I pray that out of God’s glorious riches God may strengthen you with power through the Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted, grounded and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to God who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to God be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen.
Le pido que, por medio del Espíritu y con el poder que procede de sus gloriosas riquezas, los fortalezca a ustedes en lo íntimo de su ser, para que por fe Cristo habite en sus corazones. Y pido que, arraigados y cimentados en amor,puedan comprender, junto con todos los *santos, cuán ancho y largo, alto y profundo es el amor de Cristo; en fin, que conozcan ese amor que sobrepasa nuestro conocimiento, para que sean llenos de la plenitud de Dios. Al que puede hacer muchísimo más que todo lo que podamos imaginarnos o pedir, por el poder que obra eficazmente en nosotros, a él sea la gloria en la iglesia y en Cristo Jesús por todas las generaciones, por los siglos de los siglos! Amén.
