What To Expect

Welcome to Calvary Chapel Joplin! Whether this is your first time or you have been here before, we want to make it clear to you that you are welcome and you are loved! What can you expect to see and experience when you visit Calvary Chapel Joplin?

Service Times
We currently have one Sunday morning service, at 10:00AM.   

At Calvary Chapel Joplin, you will experience friendly people, modern worship music and biblical messages in a comfortable environment. We want to make you feel as welcome as possible.

A Typical Service
Services begin with a welcoming by the worship leader followed by 25-30 minutes of worship expressed through song. After a few announcements there will be a song and offering will be received (As a visitor you will not be asked or expected to give an offering. You are our guest!). Pastor Jeff will deliver a message designed to help you apply biblical principles to everyday life. This message is typically 45 minutes in length. After the message there will be a closing song. There will be pastors and other leaders available to talk and/or pray at the end of service. You are always welcome to come forward to do so.

How to Dress
We invite you to dress casually and comfortably. You’ll fit right in. After all, the Bible tells us that God is more concerned with our hearts than He is with how we dress or look. (1 Samuel 16:7)

What Calvary Chapel Believes
At Calvary Chapel Joplin, our mission statement is “Knowing God and making Him known.” We are committed to bringing people into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, assisting them to maturity in the Christian faith and equipping all believers to share the gospel message with as many as will listen.
