March 31, 2020 – To stem the spread of the Coronavirus and reduce risk to the most vulnerable members of our communities, we who are strong are called on by God to care for those who are weak (Romans 15:1). Until further notice our Ministry Center is closed to all gatherings, including Sunday services. Instead, join us for:
• A live stream of our Sunday service at 10 a.m. on our Facebook Fanpage with updates, an encouraging message, and worship.
• Face-to-face interactive, corporate prayer on Sunday’s at 6 p.m. on Zoom (an Internet conferencing venue).
• Small groups meeting on either Zoom or Messenger.
For help in connecting with us online call or text our pastors:
Dennis Chaput (574-276-2281)
Kate Podjan (574-261-6939)
We do not worry about trouble, but we do prepare for it. For now, let the Lord show us new ways to “be the church!”
You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. The second is equally important: Love your neighbor as yourself. -Jesus
LOVE GOD. LOVE PEOPLE.
When we live a life of revolutionary love, we see the effects both internally and externally. A lifestyle of loving God and loving people looks like this...
At Open Door, we provide opportunities to connect with God every Sunday, and we encourage each person to develop a personal relationship with Jesus. We also connect with one another on Sundays, as well as encouraging each person to connect with people in their individual spheres of influence (family, workplace, neighborhood, etc.).
We provide opportunities to grow in our awareness of how Holy Spirit is moving in every aspect of our lives. We grow by reading the Bible, spending time in prayer, by hearing and obeying God's voice, and stepping out in faith in the areas and ways that the Lord is leading. We grow in small groups and discipling relationships. We daily choose to love the people God has placed in our lives.
It brings honor to God when we offer simple acts of service. At Open Door, we serve Jesus every Sunday morning on our volunteer ministry teams and by living out our Christian faith and serving those around us each day.
We used it before the hipsters did.

Wouldn't it be awesome if this stuff grew on trees?
