“I will try and put into words what the past two days have been like . But I cannot imagine how I could possibly describe the stories but if people could have been there by my side and been privy to the stories I heard…The tears I saw the families I have met…The moms that were there….The thank yous I received ……I mean there is always tears at weddings but these tears were from people that had thought they would never be allowed to marry legally the person they love. What an honor I have been given to see all of this up close and personal and I got to have a role in it. I love my life!”
-Pastor Randy Eddy-McCain 05/13/2014
At Open Door, we believe that Christian fellowship should extend beyond the Sunday Morning Services and into all facets of our daily lives. To that extent, we strive to schedule activities throughout the year in an effort to provide a fun, safe environment of fellowship for all ages. These activities include guest speakers from across the United States, guest musical artists, concerts, workshops, nature hikes, picnics, potluck suppers, AIDS Awareness Walkathons, participation/representation in Pride events, and holiday parties. And of course we have a tradition of annual special services that celebrate Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Each Autumn is capped by an Annual Fall Conference, with many guest speakers and musical artists.
Please check this page often as it will be updated frequently as new events are scheduled into the calendar.
