Joyride Together – A Journey to Joy pt2

Experience joy Together

What makes the best joyride experience?
A bright, sunny day along the beach?
A windy drive through crisp, cool autumn mountain air?
Cruising under the lights and sights of city skyscrapers?
Regardless of the setting, the best joyrides always have one thing in common … experiencing joy together with friends!

Joyrides are better together

Living in joy is the same. It’s a team activity. Join us for a Joyride as Pastor Lisa Eggert navigates our journey through the book of Philippians and shares stories of experiencing joy together. Such as how nearly 200 kids and counselors experience joy together at WEAG’s annual Kid’s Camp. The kids get cheered on for five days straight. They hear their names chanted and they receive roaring applauses throughout the day. They are constantly being encouraged and affirmed and loved by their counselors and by each other. It brings out the most beautiful of things in their little hearts.

Imagine if real life was like Kid’s Camp

What if at least church was like that… a place where you could go and know that others would be cheering you on and rooting for you? Could a group of people be so FOR you, wanting so badly to see you win? Imagine having complete confidence that the person sitting next to you wants more than anything to see you grow closer to God. Can you even imagine that?

God wants this kind of team living for us. If we ask Him to do a work in our hearts and if we commit to the process, God will begin to change us. It will not always be easy or comfortable. But, as we make joy a habit, love will be our reflex and we’ll experience joy together as a team.
