July Youth Services

We will not be having our June or July Youth Bible Studies, but will be having the following services instead. Each of these services will start at 7:30PM.

Monday, July 20th – Bro. Jon Sanger
Tuesday, July 21st – Bro. Jon Sanger
Wednesday, July 22nd – Bro. Andrew Glover
Thursday, July 23rd – Bro. Andrew Glover
Friday, July 24th – Bro. Trevor Emond

All of these services (with the exception of Wednesday night) will be focused to the youth, but all ages are welcome to attend.

Music Page

We have added a Music page to the top menu of the website that features music from Church Of The Open Door.

Tithes & Offerings

We have been receiving questions about how you can pay tithes, since we are currently unable to have services with everyone physically at church.

You can mail checks to Church Of The Open Door (or use your bank’s online bill pay option) to the following PO box, or use the recently added “Donate” button (in the top menu of the church website) to donate via PayPal account or debit card. The donate link has a dropdown option, which allows you to select how your donation should be designated (‘Tithes’, ‘Offerings’, ‘Missions‘, or ‘Building Fund’).

Streaming Services:

* Streaming will remain open until we go back to full attendance, at which point we plan on switching to a password requirement for live streaming. We will update the church website with information on how to register for a streaming password a week or so prior to that.

Service Guidelines:
* We are recommending anyone 65+ to stream the services.
* If anyone has a fever, cold or flu symptoms: please stay home.
* We will be seating people on every other row, to respect social distancing during this time.
* Household units / family members will need to sit together.
* There needs to be reasonable spacing between non-family members.

* We will be blocking off the water fountain during this time.
* Limit two people in the downstairs restrooms at a time and one in the upstairs restroom (for social distancing purposes).
* Please park every other parking place if possible.
* The deacons will have something available in the entryway for any tithes and offerings as you exit (instead of passing the baskets).
* Deacons will dismiss you by row at the end of service. Please go on outside (unless you are remaining in the sanctuary to pray), instead of congregating in the entryway.
* Please go to your vehicles once you are dismissed and respect social distancing as much as possible. We do not want our good to be evil spoken of (Romans 14:16).
* Please follow these instructions and be patient with our deacons during this time, as I have asked them to enforce these rules.

Thank you and God bless you during this time and always, ~ Bro. Nathan Bryant

Internet Services – April Updates

We will continue having Sunday morning and Wednesday evening online only services, through the end of April, unless a vaccine, etc. is discovered that lifts the quarantine earlier than expected. It is heartbreaking that all of us will not be able to assemble together in person for Easter, but I am thankful that we have an option to still be able to enjoy the services online.

The Live Streaming link (at the top of the page) has been updated to use embedded videos on our website, instead of redirecting to a different page. If you have been going directly to the YouTube channel, to stream services, this will not work moving forward. Please access streaming via the “Live Streaming” link at the top of the website.

The Archived Sermons link (at the top of the page) has been updated as well, to include archived video, in addition to the existing archived audio and sermon notes. We will be moving older audio archives over to the new page one archived year at a time.

Over the next few months we plan to make some additional updates to the church website, including a much-requested Music page.

May God continue to richly bless you and your families.

Till we meet, ~ Bro. Nathan Bryant

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” ~ St. John 14:27

And why does God let troubles come? God harnesses trouble, puts bits in its mouth and makes it obey Him, and those troubles bring us into a closer fellowship with God.” ~ Rev. William Marrion Branham (60-0417S)
