As a public safety measure, please be aware that we are suspending worship and all COJ-related gatherings for the time being. You can still worship with us through our upcoming Digital Devotions, which we will publish on Sundays on the COJ Youtube channel or links through our Facebook Page link (Community of Joy, Rio Rancho).
Based on advice from health officials and our Bishop, Church Council has decided that we will not yet resume in-person worship and will continue with digital worship for the time being. For more details on this decision please read the letters below from Church Council and Bishop Gonia.
"We at Community of Joy Lutheran Church, ELCA invite all into the fullness of God's love. This invitation is inclusive of people of every race, national origin, immigration status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, physical or mental ability, sex, or station in life. We pledge to use our differences as gifts for our work together."
