Church Dedication Celebrates 12 Year Building Effort

Joplin, MO -

A construction project twelve years in the making came to fruition Sunday for  First Baptist Church of Joplin. 
Built on  property purchased in 2003, on Connecticut avenue,  the  church celebrated completion with a ribbon cutting and  dedication service Sunday morning.
After selling its historic downtown building on Pearl, church members met for about eighteen months off site. The Family Life Center was finished  in 2010.   The eleven thousand square foot  new  education and children's facility now complete,  includes a library,  classrooms for kids, offices and rooms for adult programs.

Pastor Jamie Tickel said, "It's so exciting, you know, today we're going to look back on God's faith on us to bring us to this point. We're gonna remember some of the people that aren't able to be here that were real proponents of it and of course we're gonna look forward to the future. We think God has a great plan for us and this is just a part of that chapter."

First Baptist  Joplin has a 129 year history in the community. The $3.7 million dollar new facility allows potential for expansion.
