[09/19/20]   Important Ministry update - we have learned that several individuals who have been on the church campus this past week received positive COVID-19 test results this week. With the close proximity of the virus to our church family, the elders have decided that it is wise to suspend the activities of Church of the Open Door for the coming week (Sept 18-23) and reassess the situation next Thursday, Sept 24. At that time we will communicate with you our ministry schedule moving forward.

Please be in prayer for these individuals as they complete their recoveries and for the health and protection of our church body moving forward. Thank you.

[09/16/20]   Don't forget tonight's Wednesday night fellowship meal (spaghetti and sides) at 5:30pm before Bible studies, children's programs, and youth group starts at 6:30pm. Hope to see you then! :-)

[09/04/20]   Men, please join us Saturday morning for men's breakfast at 8am.
Immediately following breakfast, we will have a church work day. All are invited to attend the work day. Thank you!

Dear Church Family,
As we move forward, it may appear as if we are moving backward – at least in terms of moving beyond the spread of the virus. Thankfully God is in control and things continue under His watchful care. May we continue to be faithful and live in the peace, joy, and hope that comes from the finished work of Christ on our behalf.

As we approach Sunday, things will look just as they have over the past three weeks. We will have fellowship time at 10am and the worship service at 10:45am. Next week, July 5, we plan to restart our ABFs and Sunday Schools for those who can join us. We will continue to encourage social distancing and appropriate measures to provide a safe environment for all who desire to attend. Again I would reiterate that each individual needs to assess their personal situation and act accordingly. For those who choose to join us in person on Sunday – please be respectful and conduct yourself with love and honor toward your brothers and sisters in Christ.

This Sunday we will examine John 12:12-22 and consider the Triumphal Entry as John records it. Have a great weekend and I hope to see you on Sunday – God bless you all!

In His Service,
Pastor Jon

Dear Church Family,

As I continue to see the demise of law and order around our country, I was led to contemplate the words of Habakkuk this week. I reflected again on the reality of God’s amazing work even in the midst of Israel’s unraveling society and culture. Israel was thoroughly riddled with violence and unrighteousness. In Habakkuk 1:4, the prophet observes, “the law is paralyzed, and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous; so justice goes forth perverted.” In the following verses God discloses that He is preparing judgment for the rebellious nation – verse 5 ends with these words, “For I am doing a work in your days that you would not believe if told.” God relays to Habakkuk the unbelievable news of judgment and destruction for the nation – that He is preparing! God will not overlook injustice, violence, or unrighteousness. Rather, He is preparing for swift and unimaginable judgment against the wicked. In all of this, He works for the protection and preservation of His people.

I hope we don’t leave these verses in a limited application to the nation of Israel. Certainly Israel holds a privileged place in God’s plans and that has to be maintained. Yet what God is doing here is witnessed throughout the Bible – sin is forcefully judged – whether individual or national sin. We must not think that we will escape if we participate in such acts of unrighteousness or that our country will endure if it is characterized by wickedness and unrighteousness. We are well acquainted with the violence and murder in our country, unchecked rebellion, and abuse and exploitation by individuals in positions of power. Furthermore, hatred, anger, and fornication abound unchecked and are often encouraged. As a country we have spent many decades cultivating sin and rebellion and as a result – we have in our rejection of Truth – invested in a harvest of judgment.

So what- what are we as members of God's family to do? First, we are called and equipped by His Spirit to be light in this dark world. As light - we represent Truth, righteousness, love, and compassion to a world that has no desire for them. Second, We are to live by our faith (Hab. 2:4). In faith we live obediently in the moment and set our hearts and minds on the reality of God’s eternal kingdom. Third, we must pray. That is what Habakkuk did. In fact the book of Habakkuk starts with a prayerful plea. When we pray, we must seek what God is doing – His will to be done. I exhort you all to give time to focused prayer for God’s unfolding work to accomplish repentance and restoration – biblically aware that this often comes only as a result of horrific judgment. Pray for God’s people to not shrink back in fear but to be watchful and expecting the exercise of God’s will in unimaginable and unbelievable ways. Let us not pray to return to what was – but pray for God’s work to deliver us, as His people - and hopefully our nation, from the practice of evil and unrighteousness.

In the coming weeks we will be investing more time corporately in prayer. This is not a time to show up in our strength – we need God’s! The task He has apportioned to us is greater than our abilities or resources combined. The truth of John 15 – “without Me you can do nothing” – stands always before us to humble us and to encourage us.

This Sunday we will gather again for a time of fellowship at 10am and then meet at 10:45am for our worship service – to include nursery and preschool. I pray you will participate as the Lord leads either in person or via the recorded sermon which should be available about 12:15pm. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ strengthen you for faithfulness in these exciting days. Be certain of this - God will amaze us all! - to Him be all glory, honor, and praise.

See you Sunday,

Pastor Jon

[06/05/20]   Today's email from Pastor Jon

Dear Church Family,
Praise God for His love and grace! Because of His unmatched power we are secure and can enjoy rest. Even if the world should give way around us – we have nothing to fear. I pray these words characterize the tenor of your life. The foundation of all our hope is Christ! We will again consider His amazing work from John 11 - verses 38-44 on Sunday.
As we move through June we will be incrementally returning to our weekly ministry schedule.
Tomorrow: June 6 - we will meet for our monthly men’s breakfast at 8am.
On Sunday, June 7 - we will have a fellowship time starting at 10:00am and then our regular worship service at 10:45
Next week, Sunday, June 14th, we will look to add our preschool and nursery to our Sunday morning worship schedule.
Tuesday, June 16 at 10am: The Tuesday Women’s Bible Study will resume their meetings. Please be prepared to finish chapter 10 of the 1 Peter study.
Wednesday, June 17 at 6:30pm: The youth will return to their Wednesday night activities.
The resumption of our ABFs and Sunday School should happen by the end June. With numerous classes and teachers, there are more details and schedules to work out.
I look forward to seeing you all on Sunday. May the Lord bless you and keep you.

In His Service – For His Glory,
Pastor Jon

Dear Church Family,
I pray it has been a very encouraging week for you. The Lord has certainly blessed us with a bountiful provision of rain. I was excited to see many of you last week as we gathered inside for our worship service. Those who attended did a great job adhering to our distancing protocols and movement patterns. As we proceed forward, until further notice, we are planning to have our regular worship service inside our facility at 10:45am. Over the next weeks we will begin to add back additional ministry components. We will start next week, Sunday June 7, with a fellowship time starting at 10:00, utilizing new safeguards and layouts. By the end of June we are hoping for a return to what was a “normal” Sunday morning ministry schedule.

I would ask that you continue to lift up our church family as we each face unique challenges and issues. Also, we need to be in prayer for our country as we again face the reality of racial division that has been exposed in the unjust application of power.

May we always be encouraged, knowing that God is at work and that He is faithfully watching over His children. We may not see or desire to endure that which is before us – but be assured that God is not removed from our circumstances. Our Scripture reading for Sunday will come from Isaiah 55:6-12 and contains comfort and certainty for our these perilous times. Verse 12 begins with - and I will close with –this promise of the Lord’s compassion for his children, “For you shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace.”

God bless you all!

Pastor Jon

What a great time of worship and teaching this morning! We're thankful to be back as a body of believers!

[05/23/20]   Good morning church family! Tomorrow we will meet for an indoor congregational service at 10:45. There will be no programs before, during or after the service (no nursery, children's programs, adult classes, or fellowship/ snack time).

The wearing of masks is encouraged, but not required - not so much for yourself but for other people.

We hope you'll join us tomorrow at 10:45 am.

What a blessing to worship together and hear Pastor Jon preach!

Social distancing Sunday! First Sunday together since quarantine began.

[05/15/20]   Email update from Pastor Jon this afternoon

Dear Church Family,

I pray you are all well and enjoying the peace and joy of the Lord. I am very excited about our outdoor service this Sunday, May 17, at 10am. We will have chairs available but feel free to bring your own. The requirement for social distancing calls for six feet between families or individuals and this will be our practice. The plan is for the service to be held around the porch, outside the double glass doors. We will be able to utilize the shade the fellowship hall building supplies for much of the service. Please do not come if you are not feeling healthy and completely well or if you do not feel comfortable with the situation. I understand that there are many different factors that must be considered to make an informed decision and I ask that liberty be granted, without judgment, to each one regarding individual decision. If you choose to attend, please be respectful of distancing requirements and personal space. Make no assumptions on personal contact - e.g. hugs, handshakes, holy kisses. The sermon will be recorded and it should be available for you to listen via the web around 11:15am should you choose not personally attend.

Remember, we come to worship the great God who is worthy. May our hearts overflow with praise, may our rejoicing testify to our faith, and may the fellowship of His people give a visual testimony of His transforming love and grace. Consider the exhortation of Ps. 95:

1 Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! 2 Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! 3 For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. 4 In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also. 5 The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land. 6 Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker! 7 For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand…

For those who would like to extend their time of fellowship – the outdoor pavilion is available after the service, providing a great location to enjoy a picnic lunch and additional personal interaction.

God bless you all!

In His Service – For His Glory,

Pastor Jon

[05/09/20]   Pastor Jon's email from Friday.

Dear Church Family,
This week I was reminded of the hymn “Great is Thy Faithfulness” and through the words of that song, I have reflected on the many ways God demonstrates His faithfulness. I invite you to consider these words as well and through your consideration of God’s faithfulness – worship and praise the One who is always faithful.

1 Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
there is no shadow of turning with thee;
thou changest not, thy compassions, they fail not;
as thou hast been thou forever wilt be.

Great is thy faithfulness!
Great is thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see:
all I have needed thy hand hath provided--
Great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

2 Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
sun, moon, and stars in their courses above
join with all nature in manifold witness
to thy great faithfulness, mercy, and love.

3 Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide,
strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

In these times of uncertainty, we have a great Rock to rest upon and in His strength -a great opportunity to demonstrate a genuine peace that results from His strength and faithful provision. May we always live hope-filled lives as we walk with our Lord and may we shine as lights in this dark world.

We are one step closer to meeting together in person as things change at the governmental level here in North Carolina. Per the governor’s Phase 1 plan, starting this afternoon at 5pm we have available to us the option to meet outdoors while still maintaining appropriate distancing. As the elders met this past Wednesday to discuss among other things, the resumption of our ministry activities, we considered the upcoming changes and devised the following course of action. This Sunday, May 10th, we will continue as in the previous weeks to post the morning message online. However, weather permitting next Sunday, May 17th and in the ensuing weeks, we are planning to hold our morning worship service outside. The details and logistics of this are still being worked out. Meanwhile, we continue to work on securing the necessary technology to provide a weekly video recording of our worship service.

As we approach the Scriptures this weekend, we will be in John 10 – and will consider the great and comforting truth of Jesus as our Shepherd. He sees, He knows, and He protects His sheep. How blessed we are!

Also, happy Mother’s Day to all who know the joys and the hardships of motherhood. May we all thank God for the gift of life and the mother He used to bring us into this world and the impact that she has brought to our lives.

I will leave you with the benediction from Hebrews 13:20–21, “Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.”

In His Service – For His Glory,
Pastor Jon
