Community of Joy Lutheran Church, originally called Rio Rancho Lutheran Church, was founded in late 1987.Services were held in various places including the Italian-American Center and Stapleton Elementary School. In 1990, COJ officially became a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
Since then, COJ has experienced many ups and downs, but thanks to God and many dedicated people, we are now a joyful and thriving community in Rio Rancho.
In 2004 we moved into our first dedicated facility at 841 Saratoga Drve and have since added on an education wing to accommodate our growing congregation. We invite you to join us as we move forward sharing Christ's love and growing God's family!
