Worship

Come Rejoice with Us!

Worship at South Joplin Christian Church

We are worshiping in person every Sunday at 10:45 at PEACE LUTHERAN CHURCH, 3100 N. St. Louis Ave., Joplin.  

Worship | 10:45 AM 

MUSIC: Worship at SJCC is informal and intergenerational. We offer a blend of traditional and contemporary music and augment the service with selections from our adult vocal and handbell choirs as well as children’s bell choir.

PRAYER: During the Prayers of the People, you are invited to light candles at stations provided for your spiritual reflection and enrichment, or to sit in quiet meditation. 

COMMUNION: We believe the practice of Communion is central to worship, and offer an open Table to all. It is our opportunity to remember, receive, and practice the grace that reconciles us continually to God and to one another. Everyone (children, adults, members, non-members, seekers, everyone) is invited to come forward to one of two stations to receive the bread and cup (individual serving) and exchange the Peace of Christ with the servers. Servers will bring the elements to those who prefer to be served at their seat.

MISSION CHALLENGE: A challenge is offered at the end of the service to remind us that worship is the prelude to serving Christ, and we go forth to serve, empowered by the Spirit.

CHILDREN: We welcome and celebrate the presence of children in our worship, and offer moderate supplies (reading material, worksheets and coloring pencils) at the back south corner of the sanctuary. Elementary age children are welcome to light the Christ Candle following brief training.

Children ages 3 and a half through grade 2 are invited to a special worship environment geared to teach and facilitate learning at an age-appropriate level through the program known as “Children Worship and Wonder.” Sessions are offered weekly at 10:45AM except the first Sunday of the month in the designated room on the north side of the second floor (across from the sanctuary). For more detail about the curriculum and methodology, please view the videos linked below.

NURSERY: With apology, our nursery is currently not staffed. Parents who need to use the room for diaper changes or restless infants are welcome to do so at their discretion. The nursery is located across from the sanctuary on the southwest side of the church.

CHOIRS:  Chancel Choir for adults meets on Wednesday evenings at 7 PM in the sanctuary. Children’s bell choir for kids age Pre-K through 5th grade rehearses at 10:15AM on the Second Sunday of the month in the sanctuary and plays that day for worship at 10:45AM. Newcomers always welcome!
