During the Christmas season an atmosphere of blessing is created as needs among the Open Door family and ministry partners are shared and responded to in turn.

SHARE NEEDS - November 13 to December 4

During the Christmas season the reality of being a family is created as needs are shared and met. SHARE THE UNIQUE CHALLENGES THAT YOU OR A LOVED ONE MAY BE FACING. Think how you may need support this Christmas season. This may include groceries, meals, rides, help decorating or purchasing gifts, household preparations, repairs, help wrapping and mailing items, etc. There are friends at Open Door that would be glad to respond to these needs.

RESPOND TO NEEDS - November 27 to December 18

Community Blessings is a fun way to respond to the needs in our family and surrounding community. They are also posted at church in the Gathering Place. We get to reach out and be answers to prayer for people in our community. It’s a gift to be able to share our needs and share our resources. Thanks for being in this together! RESPOND TO NEEDS HERE


One of the beautiful parts of this annual tradition is the opportunity to be not only one who gets to respond to people's needs but also the opportunity to share your own. It is vulnerable to ask for help but the reality is that we will all need help from others at one point or another in our lives! Take a listen to one church member's experience with getting to both give and receive.
