"I have told you these things so that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete." - John 15:11

This quote caught my eye, “happiness has deep roots in the soil of chance.” Happiness is a delightful guest that appears in our lives when things go our way; we laugh and have fun; and when we experience ourselves as fortunate. But joy has a more expansive quality. We experience joy when we have a sense that there is enough, more than enough, goodness and love to go around.

Do you equate Christianity with joy? The joy we find in following the Way of Jesus provides the power that can change individuals, churches, and communities for good. Being filled with joy doesn’t mean we don’t know the pains of a broken and hurting world. But it does give us inspiration and energy to address needs that we see in our community.

We've designed a four-week sermon series on Joy to explore the dimensions of the Good Life and how joy integrates the dimensions. Consider inviting friends, family, co-workers, or neighbors to experience the joy we share at FCC. The series will be presented through multiple voices and begins Easter and continue through Mother’s Day. Each Sunday we will share the joy of special events, with our spring NEXT 90 vision event falling on week three, Sunday, May 5.
