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.

Box tops for education – Box Tops for Education has helped America’s schools earn over $400 million since 1996. You can earn cash for area schools by clipping Box Tops coupons from hundreds of participating products. The Box Tops may be placed in a designated container on the information table.
Ozark Water Project – We partner with Ozark Water Project to turn shoes into drilling water. The shoes are exported to distributors in third world countries and sold to folks in need. The sale also helps build the local developing economy. The funds generated are then used to purchase well digging rigs for fresh water. Shoes may be placed in the tub near the I AM table.
