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.
In March 2012 not quite a year after the Joplin tornado South Joplin Christian Church opened “The Station” a facility in its converted Quonset hut to house volunteers. The Station housed over 1450 volunteers during the 2½ years of operation. Although for a period of time thereafter the Station temporarily housed Crosslines Ministries, a local food panty with which the church partners, it is available to again house volunteers. The Station is now registered as a “Hospitality Station” with Disciples Volunteering to host traveling mission teams looking for overnight accommodations while on their journey.
The facility can sleep a maximum of 36 guests in two separate bunk rooms, has a functional kitchen, 3 men’s showers and 4 women’s showers, washer and dryer and a common space. Adjacent to the property the church has a small park with play equipment and a small gazebo. For more information contact our Minister of Mission and Outreach or the Property Chairperson at 417-624-2522 or via email – firstname.lastname@example.org.
