Sunday Gathering

Here's what to expect on a Sunday morning at Open Door...

A Warm Welcome


Whether it's a greeter at the door, one of our pastors, or just the person sitting next to you, you can expect a warm welcome at Open Door. Grab a cup of coffee in our lobby from 9:30-10:00am and get to know someone before church.


Something For the Kids


Open Door is a family environment and we love kids! There is a check-in table for Open Door Kids in our lobby where parents can sign-in their children before church. All children can be dropped off at their rooms before church begins and picked up at the end of service.


Open Door Kids check-in runs from 9:40-10:15am. 



Our times of worship are creative and driven by the desire to experience God's presence. Our sound is current and includes well known songs as well as original music from our worship team.




Every Sunday our pastors bring a message that is founded on scripture and applicable to life. Our messages last about a half an hour.

A Time To Give Back


Each Sunday we give those who call Open Door home a chance to give financially to the work of the church. If you're just visiting us, you're our guest - please don't feel any need to contribute during this time.




We take communion once a month (also known as The Lord's Supper or the Eucharist). This is a sacred act of worship that Jesus began with His disciples the night before he was crucified. If you call Jesus your Savior, you are welcome to take communion with us, regardless of your church background.




Our service offically ends with the saying of a benediction - a blessing we say to each other. It goes like this:


May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ

and the love of God

and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit

Be with you all



Hanging out


Refreshments are served immediately after church. If you're visiting us, we'd love for you to hang out and get to know us better.

Gathering Sundays at 10am at the San Rafael Community Center

Open Door Kids

We believe that church should be fun - for you and your kids! When you enter our lobby you will notice a table to your left where you can sign-in your child and give us any useful information about your child's needs. Our staffed classrooms are available from 9:45am until church dismisses. Drop off your little one any time!  Activities usually include a game, a snack, and an interactive lesson from the Bible. We hope your kids have a great time!  


Prayer Meetings

Prayer is the engine that drives Open Door. During our prayer gatherings we ask God to move more deeply in our lives, in our church, and in our community. God is faithful to stir our hearts during these times together and the results are truly life-giving. Come join us and see what it's all about.
