Ministries at UMCOD
We think about our various ministries in seven broad groupings, as seen here.
Explore where you might "fit in" ... or ... speak with us about some other area where God is calling you to serve with your special talents!
Many of our past and current ministries started that way!
Community Ministries at Church of the Open Door reflect our vision, core values, and how we have been gifted to journey with our neighbors as the visible presence of God’s compassion, mercy, and justice. At Church of the Open Door there are opportunities to serve in our church and communities near and far.
Come. Join us in practicing what makes for peace and mutual enrichment.
Loads of Love: Laundry Ministry
Connections Ministries welcome and journey with everyone new to UMCOD: from first time visitors attending a community outreach event to new members getting to know our church and looking for fellowship, study, and community service opportunities. Our goal is to make everyone feel welcome, comfortable, and connected!
Adult Ministries use the “Small Group” model, in which all adults are invited to participate. Adult Small Groups pray together, study together, support one another, serve the community and have fun together. To learn more about any of these opportunities, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-444-2400.
Ministry groups include:
Walking in the Word
Kidz Korner (Nursery/Preschool) is a wonderful introduction to the teachings of Jesus and the Bible for our youngest members.
At the Church of the Open Door, you will find a variety of opportunities for personal, congregational, and community prayer. To that end, you can make Prayer Requests by phone, by speaking to a member of the church staff, or through the sharing of joys and concerns during Celebration Worship.
Worship & Music Ministries
If you or your family members enjoy music, please join us!
The Praise Team provides music for most of the worship services.
The Rainbow Children's Choir and Praise Dance also provide music and artistic expression at selected Celebration Worship services throughout the year.
Other technical & artistic talents help to enrich our worship, be it decorating the altar or the worship space, or enabling the effective use of technology.
