Community of Joy Lutheran Church's Mutual Ministry Team

Mutual Ministry is the “caring for those who are our servant-leaders.”  It is also “the equipping and supporting of all baptized members so that they can, in turn, carry the gospel into the world and into the church.” It developed from the idea of what Luther referred to as the “mutual conversation and consolation among Christians.”

Holy Communion

We practice open communion weekly as we welcome all who honor Christ as their Savior to receive His true body and blood in our holy sacrament.  Both white grape juice and wine are offered.  Gluten-free wafers are available.  Children are invited forward for a blessing.  Our ushers will assist with any questions.
