What to Expect

What to Expect

Welcome to Real Joy Community Fellowship: A Church for the Unchurched! 

If you are new to Real Joy Community Fellowship or even just checking us out for the first time, we want to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Believe it or not, you are an answer to prayer! We have been praying for your arrival for a long time, so please make yourself welcome!

What do you mean by saying you’re a Church for the Unchurched? If you are currently not attending a church regularly and are looking for a church home, you are unchurched. If you are a new Christian or even just investigating what it means to be a Christian, you are unchurched. At Real Joy, we take Christ’s command to make disciples (Matthew 28:19) seriously, and we try to honor it by reaching out to the unchurched.

What time are your services? What can I expect? On Sunday mornings we have several adult Bible study classes meeting at 10:00 am including one geared toward those between the ages of 18-25. Also, we have classes for our youth, tweens, and young children. We even have a nursery and child-care available for your little ones. When you arrive, one of our church leaders will gladly help direct you to a class where you can expect to find good discussion and Biblical teaching. Our main worship service immediately follows at 11:00 am. Our praise team kicks things off with a mix of contemporary and traditional worship songs and Pastor Tony follows with a sermon that always focuses on God’s Word. We have a big screen that displays the Scripture being explored, however, we encourage you to bring a Bible. God’s Word is at the core of everything we teach and preach at Real Joy. You can check out videos of our Praise Team under the Media tab on this page and listen to Pastor Tony’s past sermons under the Sermons tab. We also have a worship service on Sundays at 6:30 pm and on Wednesday nights, we have Bible study at 6:30.

What should you wear? The atmosphere at Real Joy is relaxed. You’re welcome to wear whatever you find comfortable. You’ll see church members wearing everything from jeans and a tee shirt to dress pants and a tie.

Where is Real Joy located? Real Joy Community Fellowship is located on US Route 23 just south of Chillicothe, Ohio. It takes about 10 minutes to get here from the center of Chillicothe and we are also conveniently located for those in Waverly and other surrounding areas.

I have a teenaged son or daughter, will there be things for them to do? Our youth group is growing fast and is very active. They meet every Sunday morning at 10:00 AM and Wednesday at 6:30 PM. Other activities are also planned and coordinated throughout the year.
