Welcome. . .
Are you looking for a place where you can...
... explore your spirituality?
... ask the important questions of life?
... have your faith and your doubts?
... be loved and included just as you are?
... give your children a solid spiritual foundation?
... be surrounded by a caring community?
... learn through serving others?
... make a difference in the world?

We are now LoveJoy United Presbyterian Church! Here you will discover who we are as a community of faith. As individuals, we are often busy and can find ourselves distracted as we seek to find balance and meaning in our lives. At times we have questions that are bigger than simple answers can resolve. Yet in the midst of these circumstances, we come together and seek to be transformed by the love of God and extend that love to others through our actions.

We are grateful you have found our site and hope you will choose to join us for our worship service or other event. If you have any questions about our church and its ministry please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Grace & Peace,

I'm New!  And I have questions...
