Adult Ministry

As a church our mission is to prepare God's people to discover completeness in Jesus. We have several opportunities for adults to learn and grow both spiritually and relationally, and we invite you to dive in to what God is doing in and through the different pieces of our Adult Ministry.

We offer classes and Bible studies on Sundays and Wednesdays in order to give you an opportunity to learn and apply the truths of the Bible. Whether it’s a Bible study of a particular passage or book, a class about spiritual disciplines or a group that helps people find freedom from pain and suffering, there is always a chance for you to connect and grow with us.

Fall Classes Beginning Soon!

College Age

We love college-aged students at Christ’s Church! No matter where you are in life, whether in school or in the workforce, we want to connect with you! We have lunch together every Sunday during the school year.

Want free food? Join us for lunch!

Lunch is served immediately following the 10:45am service every Sunday during the school semester.

Life Groups

Our Life Groups are the heartbeat of our connections with each other. A Life Group is a place where you can grow in your relationship with Jesus while growing into a greater understanding of what the Church is and how we partake in being the Church.We believe that Life Groups are a great place to develop and maintain a healthy Christian life.

What happens in a life group?

Life Groups gather together to go through a lesson that is based on the sermon from the previous week. The lesson includes a time of Bible study, application, and prayer. This allows for a natural growth as groups experience true community and become a picture of the Church. Again, the goal of each group is to encourage and challenge each other to fulfill the great commission (Matt. 28:18-20) by using their gifts, talents, and abilities (I Peter 4:10) and to serve one another by meeting each other’s needs (Galatians 6:2).

Why are life groups important?

At Christ’s Church we believe it is vital to connect to others in healthy and growing relationships. Jesus never intended us to go through the joys and trials of life alone. A Life Group is a place for each of us to be real with each other so that we can help each other along toward maturity in Jesus.

When & where do life groups meet?

Life Groups meet throughout the week. Most groups meet on weeknights, but some meet during the day, morning, or on weekends. Life Groups meet in each other’s homes all over the greater Joplin area.

Women’s Encounter

It starts as a weekend away but it can launch one of the most powerful explorations into the heart of God. This is one of the primary ways women at Christ’s Church are finding the freedom that Christ offers and the community that we all desperately need. Women’s Encounter has three parts: Pre-Encounter, Encounter Weekend and Post-Encounter.

Next Women’s Encounter | September 29 - October 1

Men

Men have a unique ability to encourage one another in life and in Godly pursuit. Here at Christ’s Church, we want to take hold of that ability and provide opportunities for you to invest in men around you and for you to be invested in.

Men's Encounter

Men’s Encounter is a weekend to spend with Jesus and connect with other men. During the weekend we will look at 14 different areas of our lives and discover God’s hand in all of them. We will learn through testimonies, teachings, and worship. This weekend has the potential to change your life as you “Encounter the Cross.” If you come with a humble and open heart, ready to allow God to change you from the inside out, your life will never be the same!

Next Men's Encounter | November 3-5

Baptism

Baptism doesn't earn God's grace or mercy, it is how we receive it. It doesn't force God's hand, it is our identification with Jesus. Interested in being baptized?
