GREAT DAY OF SERVICE
The Great Day of Service is the single largest service event to hit the city of Joplin! It started in 2003 and has grown to over 2500 volunteers! We believe every year we do this event that HIStory is in the making! You see—God loves this city, and we are able to demonstrate that love on a massive scale when we come together and let Him use our hands, hearts, and lives to love people in practical ways. Our goal is that in some way every home, business, street, family, and person we come in contact with on that day is blessed and touched by the love of God! We can do so much more when we do it together with the blessing of Christ!
We have partnered with agencies in town plus we will work in several neighborhoods, so there are all kinds of things you could do. Painting, mowing and raking, playing with children, cleaning, visiting nursing homes, landscaping, some light construction and odd jobs for elderly, etc.
Meet at the church at 7:45 AM for donuts, OJ and coffee and find your team in the Worship Center for a short time of worship, prayer, and final instructions.
At 12:00 Noon the party begins at Landreth Park with hamburgers, hotdogs, chips, dessert, drinks, games, live music and prizes for kids. Lots of fun for kids and for all as we celebrate the love of God together!
