One Hour Services


Our services are an hour long. Get there early for free coffee and donut holes! Stay after service to connect with people and get info on what’s happening at Joy!

What You Can Expect On Sundays


A typical service at Joy Church will have a time of singing (we call it worship) and a relevant message based on a Biblical text or idea. We focus on Jesus and teach messages that can be put into practice right away.


It’s not boring and it’s not religious!

Your Child Is Cared For


We value kids at Joy Church. We have a great team of volunteers who will help you check your kids in, teach a relevant lesson, and help your kids have a great time! Find out more here:

You Won't Be Singled Out


We want you to feel as welcome and comfortable as possible! You will not be singled-out or embarrassed.


That being said, we do want to connect with you, hear your story, and help you take the next step with Jesus. We have a simple connect card that you will have an opportunity to fill out and as a bonus, you get an awesome gift!

We Meet In A Movie Theatre


Yup—and it’s awesome! Great chairs, everyone can see and hear what’s going on, plenty of parking! What’s not to love?


Plus you can eat popcorn during the message!

Joy Groups Connect You With New Friends


Join a Joy Group and meet with your awesome new friends throughout the week. Joy Groups meet all over the city so odds are there’s a Joy Group near you!


You'll eat a meal, laugh a lot, and discuss a story from the Bible together. Find out more HERE.

Joy Students Meet On Wednesdays


Joy Students is an environment where students in Jr. High and High School can make friends, have fun, learn what the Christian life looks like, and walk that out together. We meet Wednesdays 7pm at The Loft (2940-B Chad Drive). 


Our Story

Joy Church Eugene was born on March 13th, 2016 in Pastor Jake and Bethany's living room. Twenty-nine adventurous souls sought God's heart for a new church in the city of Eugene on that first night. Since then, Joy Church has welcomed hundreds of new friends to the party! We've moved twice and are currently loving our home at the movie theaters! Joy is a church that strives to live up to it's name. There's always room for more! Hope to see you soon!

Our Pastors

Jacob and Bethany  Schmelzer

Jacob and Bethany love Jesus, love each other, love their kids, and love their friends. They're excited to lead a wonderful church in fulfilling God's plan for the city of Eugene!
