Who We Are
Community of Joy is a Christian congregation in Eagan, MN, whose mission it is to influence many to believe in Jesus Christ and live for Him. Our name reflects our identity as a community of Christians among whom the joy of the Lord is evident as we worship Him together, build the lives of those with whom we connect in ministry, and impact our neighborhood and beyond through service and outreach. As we celebrate our freedom in the gospel of Jesus Christ, grow together in God’s grace, and discover ways to share the love of Christ with others, we are finding that the joy of the Lord is our strength.
