Ministry Dinner April 28 is now CAMP COD!

The Ministry Dinner coming Thursday April 28 is now officially CAMP COD! 6:30 – 8:30pm on the Back Porch.

It’s going to be a memorable time on the Back Porch at COD, eating some delicious food at camp tables set by our camp leaders! We’ll all enjoy the great outdoors together for a couple of hours, spotting fireflies at sunset. And yes, there will be s’mores! Things to remember:

RSVP to us at this email address soon as you can if you haven’t already (20 of you have), so we can prep.

Wear camp clothing! However that looks for you.

Cost is 10./person! Drop your cash or check (made payable to Church of the Open Door) in the bucket as you walk in. Come around the Worship Center to the back porch or up the driveway in the back.

Hope to see you all there! Thanks for serving in this joyful ministry.


Keyboard Fund Update

We have about 600. raised so far, thanks to all who have contributed! I know more of you have asked about this and said you were hoping to add to this — we are giving you ONE MORE SUNDAY to contribute! Please come prepared to give this Sunday, either by check made to COD in the box at the Prep Room table, or by giving online with the line item ‘COD Keyboard Fund’.

We are hoping to raise at least 1000. of the 1700. required for purchase. Thanks!

Sunday Morning’s Call

Here’s a post that is for everyone — I mentioned this in our worship team email today but it’s something that everyone needs to be reminded of re: our Sunday morning call time and the brief time we have to prep before services.

We have 45 minutes from 8 to 8:45am for prep. It’s helpful to have vocals start in the prep room warming up at 8. Band should be ready to play at 8 and be looking over their music, and getting sounds. Media team should be there before 8 (.15 before?) to be ready to go. As your leader I am often killing time a bit while waiting for someone to show so that we’re not doing things twice or giving instruction to some who aren’t here yet. Help us all by doing your best to be here on time!

I appreciate your attention to these details and being such a reliable and caring ministry! Thanks.

As of last Sunday (March 13) we have raised 500. towards our new keyboard – ! We’ve got two more Sundays to go to raise funds for this, 1000. total or more would be fantastic.


Keyboard Fund So Far

So far we have raised 360. for our new keyboard for worship. Thank you to all who have given already! We will continue to accept donations through Easter Sunday, and look to purchase in early April. Hoping to raise at least 1000. for this, it will cost about 1700..

Please consider giving any amount for this worthwhile addition to our worship! We’re going to donate our older keyboard to the Youth Ministry this spring.
