Welcome!

Brokenness is welcome here. Come as you are. No matter what you’ve done or where you’ve been, this is a place of grace. 
There’s no need to hide. When life gets messy (and it will), we don’t fake it around here. We believe God meets us in our real lives, not the lives we wished we had. Embrace the struggle. We stay in the struggle of becoming fully alive in God because we know the only way out is through. Live in grace and truth. Life in God is a mystery and its questions don’t have tidy black and white answers. Together, we seek Jesus’ third way - the way of grace and truth. Come.

Engage with us in the struggle of becoming fully alive in God and living for the sake of others.


JOIN US FOR A WORSHIP GATHERING: Sundays 10AM

9060 Zanzibar Lane North, Maple Grove, MN 55311

What to expect

SUNDAY GATHERING: 10AM  Our Sunday gathering starts at 10 AM and the doors to the sanctuary open 10 minutes prior. Feel free to ask for help if you need more time to get settled before the service. Each gathering is about 75 minutes in length, includes Bible-based teaching, and real / uplifting music. Communion is served on the first Sunday of the month. You may also want to bring your Bible / pen / notebook to take notes. Basically what you need to know is we take God seriously – ourselves, not so much! 


DRESS COMFORTABLY  Dress comfortably. Open Door has always been a "come as you are" church. Jeans or ties are equally welcomed.


STOP BY THE WELCOME KIOSK  Our volunteers would love to meet you, answer any questions you may have and help you figure out what your next step might be. Look for teal 'Welcome' lanyards. If you are a bit shy, fill out a Connect Card. We'll send you a welcome email with more info. You can also email us at info@thedoor.org and we'd be glad to help answer any questions you have. Lost & found is also located at the Welcome Kiosk. 


KIDS/YOUTH  Head downstairs to our lower level kiosk. We can’t wait to welcome you and show you our Next Generation program birth-high school. See below for more information on what's available for the Next Generation.


AFTER THE GATHERING  After the gathering grab more coffee, meet some new friends and stop by the Welcome Kiosk to learn more about what's happening around here. 


PRAYER TEAM  Trained prayer team members are available to pray with you after services in the front of the sanctuary. Look for someone wearing a purple lanyard. Check the Care page for additional prayer and care resources.


THE GATHERING@9  We meet at 9am (before the service) to hear people from our congregation share their stories of where their life and faith intersect. You'll walk away being encouraged to live your real life fully alive in God. Come early for church, grab a cup of coffee and join us! Kids welcome. Visit the Adults page for more info.

Babies, Kids & Teens

Head downstairs to our lower level kiosk. We can’t wait to welcome you and show you our Next Generation program birth-high school.


KIDS BIRTH-5TH GRADE  We have classes each week during the service (with the exception of a few holidays where we hold family services). Kids will learn about the Big God Story, play games, sing a little, laugh a lot, and hear just how loved they are as they interact with our friendly volunteers.


MIDDLE & HIGH SCHOOLERS meet on the 2nd & 3rd Sundays at 9am, and Wednesday nights 7:00-8:45pm.
Our teens thrive on community, serving, laughing, and taking their faith deeper and making it their own. Learn more about Wednesday night youth group and Sunday classes here.


NERVOUS KIDS (OR PARENTS)  Sometimes when you’re visiting, it’s nice to keep your kids close by. That’s great! People of all ages are welcome in our church services! There are also two family rooms in the back of the sanctuary. One for nursing mamas and their little ones, and another equipped with some quiet toys and comfortable chairs. Use whichever one your family needs!


See our Families page for more info. 

THE Coffee Cart

Who doesn't like a good cup of coffee to sip on during the service? Bring your favorite travel mug and grab some fresh brewed French Roast Coffee (from our local friends Driven Coffee). Add a flavor shot of caramel, vanilla, or the seasonal favorite syrup. Disposable cups with lids are provided if you forget your travel mug. Lids are required in the sanctuary. 


We suggest a $1 donation per cup which goes to cover the cost of the coffee and supplies. But if you forget or don't have the money, don't feel any guilt! We've got you covered. No, really. We mean it! Any and all donations over and above our monthly expenses are donated to one of our Mission Partners! Skip the drive-thru and bring your change to church where you can change the world by drinking coffee! 


Through your generous donations, in 2019 we covered the cost of coffee and supplies for our church AND we were able to give over $9,799 to support projects with our ministry partners! THANK YOU!

 

COFFEE AVAILABLE Sundays from 8:45-11:30am.
