Welcome and thank you for visiting the website of Joy Lutheran Church in Parker!

Entering this site is likely your first step in learning more about our Christ-centered congregation. As you navigate your way through our site, we hope you will get a better sense of who we are and what we believe we are called to do as followers of Jesus. We especially hope you will be interested enough to come and worship with us on a Saturday evening or Sunday morning. We would love to be able to personally greet you and introduce you to some of our members. And don’t worry if you are not a Lutheran – many of our people come from other faith traditions – or no faith tradition.  We believe that it is our differences – as well as our similarities - which when combined, enriches us all!

If you are searching for a church home, a place to worship while visiting the greater SE Denver area, or are just curious about us, we trust this site will convey to you the warm and loving atmosphere of Joy Lutheran!

With enthusiasm,

+Pastor Randy
