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.

Ongoing Ministries and Outreach:

ODCC Closed Facebook Group – The Church maintains a closed facebook group page where members share prayer requests and other personal needs, achievements, challenges, victories, and personal thoughts and inspirations.


 

Ongoing giving opportunities:

We collect toiletries for folks who are homeless or under resourced.  We support a number of organizations that minister to folks who are homeless or under resourced.  Recurring needs include soap, deodorant, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, bug repellent, underwear (new only), socks, toilet paper, baby wipes, matches/lighters, chap stick, feminine hygiene products, razors, shaving cream, combs/brushes, toothpaste, and toothbrushes.  These items may be placed in the donation box on the I AM information table.  Thanks!

Egg Cartons Needed – Save those egg cartons!  The Field / The One / The Van now has a flock of chickens to provide fresh eggs to folks who are homeless.  They are in need of egg cartons to safely transport the eggs.  If you have some cartons to donate, please place them on the I AM information table (Open Door).  This will be a continuing need.

 


ODCC Food Drive  We are proud to partner with Sherwood First Christian Church in providing food to people in our community who are in need. Non-perishable food items are collected each week. If you are in need of groceries, please contact Sherwood First Christian Church located at 2803 East Kiehl Avenue. The telephone number is (501) 835-5505. They will be happy to assist you.

 

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.
