First Christian Church of Keokuk, Iowa

Joy!

According to the Christian Bible Reference Site, the word “JOY” is mentioned 114 in the Old Testament and 58 times in the New Testament. I try to find “JOY” in most things in my life. It reminds me of happiness, bouncing with glee, tapping my toes and swaying back and forth to name a few. Our Christmas Musical title this year is “JOY!” And, yes, it will get your toes a tapping and your hands a clapping! The joyful rhythm is a very “catchy” one. Now, don’t be misled, this very fun Christmas Musical is a lot of work. We have been practicing every week since the second week of October and will continue until show time! Speaking of show time! Mark your calendars for 3 pm, Sunday, December 17, 2017 to join us at First Christian Church, 3476 Main St., Keokuk.

Isaiah 35:10 and those the LORD has rescued will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.
