In January 2019 we began looking at Skateworld and in July that same year, we purchased it for $2,650,000 and began demolition.

In January of 2020 we finally had our permits and began construction. The rennovations cost $1,152,036 and thousands of hours of volunteer labor, and after that we were ready to move in.

Just a few of the amazing people that donated time to this project!

We had our first service in the building on Sept. 20th and completed Phase 1, in February 2021.

First service in our new building!

Since then we've been working on the plans and permits for Phase 2.
Phase 2 will complete the Heating System, Sanctuary, Foyer, Kitchen, and Sound, Lighting and Video systems.

(Phase 3 will include the exterior covered areas, parking lot improvements and landscaping.)

The projected cost for Phase 2 is $700,000. We want to complete Phase 2 as soon as possible.

We are asking everyone to do three things as we take this step of faith together:


Pray, Promote, and Pledge


1) Pray - We serve a miracle working God that has led us so faithfully as a church body! He is our provider and we are trusting in Him to give us what we need to fulfill His call on our church. Please give yourself to prayer in the coming days and weeks. Let's get on our knees together and ask God how He wants us to give to and serve this vision. In addition, please pray for wisdom, direction, favor, and provision for Joy Church as we take this journey! 


2) Promote - Please use the provided promotional materials to let as many people as you possibly can, know about the exciting potential of this space. It will be a place where people can hear the gospel and meet Jesus! It will also be a hub for our community where kids can safely play! We want to see this city look more like heaven and this facility will allow us to serve our community at an entirely new level. By joyfully sharing this opportunity with friends and family you can help make a difference. It's a beautiful vision and we believe our community will want to help make it a reality.


3) Pledge - Please prayerfully consider what God would have you GIVE! This is the perfect opportunity to support the expansion of God's kingdom in OUR community! I love the saying, "We can eat an elephant if we all take a bite." This project can come together if we all give according to what God puts in our hearts. What is required isn't an equal gift but rather an equal sacrifice. Please use the provided link to make a giving pledge or donation to the project.

You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don't give reluctantly or in response to pressure. "For God loves a person who gives cheerfully."

2 Corinthians 9:7


“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden." 

Matthew 5:14
