What to Expect

What are services like?
All information, words to music, etc, is provided on screen. Joyful Worship generally follows a pattern something like this: Opening music/singing time is followed by updates and prayer. A little more music and then the message is given by Pastor Walt. A closing prayer and music brings Joyful Worship to a close.

Walt Geiszler

New Joy people are real people with real issues. They know there's more to life than "cookie-cutter" answers to issues. We grow in our faith and listen for God's "still speaking" messages of love, peace, and joy! Every one of us still has lots of room to grow, and at New Joy, you can grow at your own pace. Come and join us! --Pastor Walt
