December Worship Services and Activities

Jesus The King is Coming! Join us at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Joplin, Missouri as we prepare our hearts and remember the birth of the Lord of lords and King of kings, Jesus Christ at Christmas. The month of December is full of opportunities for worship and reflection, including:

  • Regular Weekend Services and Bible Classes
  • Wednesday Advent Meals and Worship Services
  • Three different Christmas Services from our church and school children
  • Two Christmas Eve Candlelight Services
  • Holy Communion Services on Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve

We invite you to come and experience the beautiful decorations and candles, welcoming smiles and tasty meals. Hear the sounds of choirs, musicians, and children’s voices singing God’s praises. Know God’s love for you as Jesus reveals Himself to you through His Word. Remember the true meaning of Christmas — a child born long ago who is “Immanuel,” God With Us — an infant who would bring God’s mercy, hope and peace to our desperate world. Come and feel the comforting warmth of Good News at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Joplin this month. 

Do you have questions? Give us a call at the Church Office anytime during the week at 417-624-0333. We hope to see you at Immanuel very soon.
