About Joy

As a mission congregation in 1986, Joy Lutheran Church was given its name to reflect excitement and happiness. We are a congregation that enjoys sharing laughter as much as seek to share celebrations, burdens, service, worship and fellowship. We would love for you to join us!


Our Mission Statement

Joyfully celebrate and share the love of Jesus Christ 


Our Vision Statement

By sharing our gifts and talents, we will provide growth and quality in worship, education, fellowship, stewardship and outreach 


Core Values: Much of our mission and ministry involve:


  • Feeling of Community:  Ensure that Joy provides a feeling of community and an environment of support to its members and visitors
  • Youth:  Focus on growth, both spiritual and individual, of our youth, from small children through young adult
  • Community Outreach:  Engaging the community in service as we live out God’s love for the world
  • Worship & Music: Proclaiming the Gospel in music by honoring our rich musical heritage while challenging ourselves to grow with new music
  • Environmental Stewardship/Care of Creation:  Educating our community and actively caring for God’s Creation so that we can pass it on to the next generation


Joy Lutheran is located in the south part of Tulsa surrounded by some beautiful 100+ old oak trees in Tulsa.  Our membership represents communities within a 30 mile radius.  We are a mix of young and old, quiet and loud,  transplants from other parts of the country and other churches, life long Oklahomans and those willing to give it a try. We have members that wear t shirts and those that wear three piece suits!
