Soup and Spirit Worship Services

Every Saturday of Lent at 6:00 p.m., we’ll meet as the Open Door Churches community at Las Naciones for a time of worship to enjoy a bowl of soup and good conversation around the table. Our time together will be informal, and welcoming of all ages. We’ll have time to get to know each other and explore scripture as we share our thoughts and lives on a weekly basis.

Please RSVP to your church office by the Wednesday before the service so we can know how many to prepare for.

Discipleship Group Lenten Study
Living the Way of Love: A 40-Day Devotional by Mary B. Sullivan
During Lent we’re exploring the book Living the Way of Love: A 40-Day Devotional by Mary B. Sullivan. Reflections follow the practices of The Way of Love: Turn, Learn, Pray, worship, Bless, Go, Rest. Each devotion includes a passage of scripture, a story, and reflection questions. We’ll be rotating through each practice so that each is covered once a week, going deeper into the practice throughout the forty days.
At this time the number of participants is still being counted from the sign up forms that were inserted in Sunday bulletins, so, if you are interested in joining in one of these studies, please call to confirm these dates, times, and locations. Thank you!
