The First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) of Poplar Bluff Second Annual Day of Service is in the books.

The church members were living out the command in James’ letter to the early church of having both faith and works to show the gospel to the people.

James writes to the early church, “So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I by my works will show you my faith.”

This year the church members partnered with Bright Futures and the Bread Shed to give back to the community.

April 29th was designated as Undie Sundie by Bright Futures to collect underwear for students in the Poplar Bluff R1 School District. Two hundred thirteen pairs of underwear were collected for students and the Poplar Bluff school system. Nine pair of socks were also collected.


Later one hundred fifty meals were served at the weekly meal for community members at the Bread Shed.

Our next Day of Service will be the second Sunday of July when we will grill hot dogs and hamburgers for our city and county police, state police, firefighters, and first responders.
