Welcome to St. Joseph’s

How good it is to gather to worship, to meet new friends and old, to share in worship. Can you imagine coming to church and being alone…the only one there? While the Lord is always with his people, He has given us the great gift of friendship and the ability to thrive in relationships. Sometimes, we may take for granted the company of others, but it is together that we often receive fulsome blessings.

After our refreshment time today, we are having a Special Vestry Meeting when we will be considering the proposal of Destiny Church. It should not last long and we hope all who call St. Joseph’s “home” will attend.

Something to Think About…

Don’t be distracted by short-term happiness — that isn’t the road to maturity that God has prepared for you. An abundance of fruitfulness awaits you if you’ll release your grip and let Him do whatever it takes to get you there. Charles F. Stanley
