Each month COS sends a mission team to Joplin to help residents of that city rebuild after the EF 5 tornado that tore through the center of town in 2011. It has been a little over a year but the need is still great. Each month our team stays in area churches and the last few months we've stayed at Christ's Community Church. This church will now be our "home away from home" through next year as we continue to send volunteers. Because Christ's Community Church has put its own building needs on hold to offer resources to help the victims of the tornado rebuild their lives, COS will be helping CCC in the next several months. The October team is helping to paint the inside of the church and these pictures reflect their loving work. CCC always provided cold drinks, snacks, hot showers, a few pot luck dinners, and a place to stay as COS mission teams worked in Joplin and now it is time for us to say thank you in the form of hands on ministry!
The November mission team lead by Robin Shepard is already making plans, so sign up at the Starting Points desk for Nov. 15-18 or for the December 6-9 mission to be a part of this hope offering ministry!
