Jesus - Joy-Giver

I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.” John 15:11

There is a common mistake made in church. We can think that because we possess a truth about our Savior that is real, and eternal, and urgent, that we therefore must stand in judgement of the world around us, must be strict teachers with our every word, and must conduct ourselves as good, sober, serious, boring, party-poopers.

That couldn’t be more wrong!

We don’t win our battles through self-righteousness. We don’t win souls to Christ by being dull. Instead, God wants us to carry joy into the streets—the joy that Christ came to give us!

  • This October, Galilee invites you to grow in your faith through our Wednesday night Encounter program. We want you to come and share a meal with us. You can bring a friend or your family. We’ll be sitting around tables and talking about the gospel. It’s church, but it isn’t like church on Sunday morning. We’re hoping that through Pastor Jason’s teaching on the Book of John and our personal discussion, you’ll meet with Someone you weren’t expecting.

    Got time for dinner on Wednesdays?
    We’ll meet 6:30-8:00 October 1 to November 12

    There is no cost to have your photograph taken, and you will receive a complimentary 8x10 portrait and directory for participating. You will also be able to view your images electronically immediately after photography. At that time, you will have the opportunity to purchase additional portraits to share with family and friends.
