Faith and Fellowship in Webb City
Sunday morning in Webb City finds much of its population in their place of worship. We are an ecumenical city, with 18 denominations represented, an active Ministerial Alliance and a strong appreciation of the need for a belief system as well as an appreciation for the important role faith plays in daily living. The Praying Hands memorial, standing atop a hill in King Jack Park, illustrates the city’s sense of brotherhood, just as the original painting by Albrecht Durer was a tribute to the miner’s hands of his brother.

The annual Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast is hosted by the Chamber and Ministerial Alliance. The Alliance hosts a prayer vigil around the Praying Hands throughout the day. The Ministerial Alliance coordinates a community Easter Sunrise Service, Andan annual Community Thanksgiving service and Christmas baskets for the needy.

Denominations located in Webb City include Assemblies of God, Bible, Christian, Full Gospel, united Methodist, Pentecostal, Community of Christ, Baptist, Catholic, Church of God, Independent Christian, Nazarene, Presbyterian and non-denominational.

Chamber members include First Christian Church, 417-673-4258; Emmanuel Baptist, 417-673-2645; Central United Methodist, 417-673-4238; Christ’s Church of Oronogo, 417-673-3945; Sacred Heart Catholic, 417-673-4249.
