The Core Values of SJCC
As children of God we will live our faith through:
genuine hospitality, passionate worship,
intentional faith development, risk-taking mission and service,
and Spirit-led generosity.
Abundance Orchard VBS
SJCC will be holding this year's VBS each Tuesday in July from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.
Kids age 4 years old through 5th grade are welcome to attend.
This year's theme will be "Abundance Orchard: Where faith grows and hungry people are fed."
To make this program a success, Karen Kemp is asking for volunteers! Please contact her at
firstname.lastname@example.org if you're able to help lead or assist, prepare food, or chaperone field trips.
Preregistration is open now! You may choose to submit this online form, or stop by the church. We are excited for the Abundance Orchard to begin its harvest!
Movies in the Park
We will once again begin hosting movie nights in the park (weather permitting)!
On Friday, June 26th at 7:00 pm, we'll be serving hot dogs in the park while we wait for dusk to begin the movie.
This month's selection is Happy Feet.
Bring a blanket or lawn chairs, and come ready to enjoy a family movie on our outdoor screen.
All are welcome!
With the return of mild weather, we hope to be getting our drums out in the fresh air again! Join us
on Sunday, June 28th at 6:00 pm
as we use rhythm and motion to enhance our lives of praise and prayer.
Get Ready to SOAR!

- A study and discussion on earth stewardship will begin on April 19th, which is also Earth Stewardship Sunday. The class will meet in room A-12 to discuss our responsibility and hope for taking the best care of the earth we have been entrusted with.
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.

Come Be Part of the Dream!
At South Joplin Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) we have been dreaming with God about our future. We have done ministry in Joplin for over 100 years and are planning for the century ahead. As part of this process we have:
*Set priorities for ministries
*Begun work to make improvements to our church building
*Increased our commitments as members of SJCC to financial support of the future
*Installed a projection system in the sanctuary to increase our options for worship and other ministries
*Created a plan for major improvements to our current facility and future building of new facilities
We invite you to be part of seeing this dream come true!
