Every Tuesday at 9:30 AM we have a Women's meeting. This is a very uplifting and anointed time of worship, prayer, study of God's Word and fellowship.
On scheduled Saturdays and other days, a group of "fishers of men" meet in the bookstore and from there go out to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Salvation, healings and miracles are not uncommon when the Spirit of God moves and touches His people.
Regardless of who is volunteering in the bookstore, they are always available to minister and pray for anybody who walks in with prayer needs. We believe in the power of prayer and the power of agreement (that is when 2 or 3 agree together in Jesus'name).
Outlet for Local Writers and Artists
One of the vision of the bookstore is to support the work of local artists and writers in the community, as our desire is to encourage the giftings of the Lord Jesus in each person's life to be a blessing to the Body of Christ. Books and artwork of local residents (from the Venice and adjacent cities) are available in the Bookstore. Below are some of the local writers (Jim MacInnes, Dolores Balla, Heather Burch, Margaret Calkin, Diana Hahlbohm, Wilma Hahn, and many more) whose books are in Joyful Expressions. Also available are prints of world-famous artist, Danny Hahlbohm.
