Welcome to Open Door UMC!

We are a small but passionate congregation of the United Methodist Church. We affirm our Methodist heritage while asking bold questions, seeking new and relevant truths, and maintaining a commitment to progressive Christian ministry with all of God’s people. We are a congregation that worships together, explores together, and serves together.

Visit us on Sunday morning for a casual and intimate worship experience led by Pastor Deborah and our fantastic music ministry team. Kids are welcome to stay in the worship service, or join our Children’s Ministry team for Godly Play (a program exploring faith and values through wonder, storytelling, and creativity.)

The worship service lasts about an hour. Come as you are. Be yourself. Bring a friend. Stay after for coffee and conversation.

We study together. Through small group series, we explore the challenging questions of faith and look for intersections between the sacred and the secular. We approach these issues from a progressive Christian perspective, with room for diversity of identities, opinions and experiences. Most small groups meet throughout the week and topics vary, changing periodically. There’s always a place to dive in.

While engaging our heads and hearts in worship and study, we seek to put our hands to work toward charity and justice in our local community and beyond. Check out our community page for information about current partnerships, and take a look at the calendar of events for opportunities to connect.
