Interfaith Community Building Continues
South Joplin Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a founding member of the Joplin Interfaith Coalition which has
been encouraging interfaith relationship building since the 2011 tornado.
What began as an annual Interfaith Service expanded following the Islamic Society of Joplin's experience of arson.
Since then we have increased efforts to build relationships between people of various faiths through
panel discussions, shared meals, and service opportunities.
This spring efforts continue as we share the following experiences:
Interfaith Panel on the Afterlife: March 22 at 10:00 a.m. at St. Philip's Episcopal
Volunteer Day at Crosslines (food and clothing pantry): April 26 at 9:00 a.m. at Crosslines
Healthy Congregation, Healthy Transition
Adults and High School youth are invited to join us for an important learning opportunity on Sundays
from 9:30 - 10:25 a.m. as we talk about what makes a healthy congregation, what healthy relationships
between clergy and congregations look like, and what our transition to a new pastor will be like when Pastor Jill
leaves in June. This class will run on Sunday mornings from February 9 - March 2.
This class will continue on Sunday, March 9 due to inclement weather on March 2.
"The Station" is Open for Volunteers
The Station at SJCC is up and running. It has been busy housing volunteers since mid-March 2012.
2014 is already beginning to get booked. If you are interested in staying at The Station and helping with recovery in Joplin,

Upcoming Volunteer Groups:
March 2: Raytown, MO

Responding to Disaster
As storms happen in other parts of the country and world, we here in Joplin are very aware of how important the generous responses of other people and churches continue to be to our recovery. As we hear of other locations sustaining great damage from severe weather, we know that your responses will matter to them as well. We remind you of the important work that Week of Compassion does in disaster response. Why not take a minute now to make a donation to that important work? To do so, click here.
