Welcome to Unity of Joplin – A Thriving Spiritual Community

Our Commitments

The membership of Unity of Joplin is committed to:

  • Worship celebrations that are infused with love and courageous messages of truth.
  • High quality music and other artistic expressions that inspire and transform lives.
  • Transformative education for children, youth and adults.
  • The expression of Love and Truth through active outreach ministries.
  • Bringing wholeness and a healing to the spirit, mind and body.
  • Active participation and ownership of the mission and vision of our spiritual community.
  • Creating a physical environment that realizes our vision.
  • Financial abundance and fiscal responsibility.

Unity of Joplin is a spiritual community of unconditional love and demonstrates their unshakable faith in Unity principles. In May of 2011, the beloved church building was destroyed by an F5 tornado. Yet even in the midst of devastating destruction, this spiritual community has committed to their faith and to each other. The congregation has grown stronger, and learned just how connected they are to each other and all life. We recognize we are one in Spirit, so helping ourselves to rebuild also means we are helping others.

In April 2012, we moved into our new church home, an historic church built in 1911. Renovations have turned this church into a new beautiful home where we celebrate life, love and each other. One of the banners we frequently hang outside the church echoes the congregation’s sentiments: “You are entering a kindness zone.”

Unity of Joplin Core Values: Positive, Free, Innovative, Spiritual and Inspiring.

Each core value is made manifest through the Sunday lessons and music, the youth and family ministry, our devoted Prayer Chaplain team, our monthly potluck celebrations and town hall meetings, classes, special events, and each volunteer who joyfully and freely gives their time, talent and treasures to support our ministry in creating the spiritual home we enjoy.

Unity of Joplin Vision: Centered in Spirit we celebrate Oneness and Love that works for all.

Unity of Joplin Mission: We are a diverse, spiritual community dedicated to celebrating and living Christ Consciousness

Unity of Joplin is a faith-based partner with the beacon School of Joplin. This is a small school serving the needs of children who have challenges fitting into a traditional classroom environment. Many of these children come from families that do not have the means to celebrate Christmas. Although clothing is appreciated and accepted, we are specifically open to donations of items that the kids can purchase with their “Beacon Bucks” at their school store to give as gifts to their moms, dads and siblings. These kids love to give gifts, as much as they love to receive them. Any item, it does not need to be expensive is appreciated.

What to Expect

When you enter our front doors to attend a Sunday Celebration, expect to be warmly greeted and welcomed. Whether you are a first-time visitor, regular attendee, or long-time member, we are always happy to see you and engage you in our all-encompassing, holistic spiritual community.

In fact, in any of our activities, you can expect to be treated as the wholly divine, perfectly awesome being that you already are.

If you are seeking religious services where you are told what you must believe, that you are deeply flawed and condemned, that you must submit to authority – well, you won’t find them here. Instead, you will find a spiritual community that honors and dignifies all persons and pathways to deepening personal relationships with God and one another.
