Service times, directions, and what to expect upon your first visit to Celebration Church.

Getting to know each other

We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at Celebration Church a great one!


Celebration Church meets every weekend and offers three service times at two different locations to choose from:

  • Celebration Church: Sundays at 8:30am | 10:45am
  • Celebration Empire: Sundays at 10:45am


Celebration Church has two locations across Joplin, Missouri. One on the West side of Joplin, the other in the city of Duquesne. Find a map to each at the bottom of the page.

What can I expect?

How long is a Celebration CHURCH service?

In total, our services are about 60 minutes in length. We begin with the Celebration Worship Team leading the church in music - song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of service is complete, one of our pastors will come out to share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus.

What's the culture like at Celebration Church?

Sunday's at Celebration are exciting, casual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.

What are the DIFFERENCES between the services?

The message is the same in every service. The two differences are the children's programs and the style of music.

Our 8:30am service is a family chapel feel. Children are welcome, and encouraged, to join adults in service. The Praise Team sings mostly contemporary songs but in an acoustic setting.

The 10:45am service is our full worship experience. The Worship Team is a full band and sings mostly contemporary songs. Children check in to our kids' hall and enjoy age appropriate worship and message.

Celebration Empire, at 10:45am is a satellite service. Sunday School meets at 9:45am in a one room, family feel. Children are welcome, and encouraged, to attend.

What about my kids?

We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and at Celebration Kids, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our VIBE program the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get signed in. VIBE is offered at Celebration Church's 10:45 service for kids ages infant through Grade 6.
