What to Expect?

What should I expect to find if I go to Seattle Open Door Church? That is a great question. But it is somewhat hard to answer because it matters at what time you come to our church. We are a very unique church because we have church services in English, Spanish, Samoan, and 'Recovery'. Here is what we can guarantee you-no matter what time you show up at Seattle Open Door Church you will find people who Love God, Love People, and Love Life. You will find our doors open to anyone who has a desire to know more about God. (Take a look at our Vision and Mission Statements)

Well, if you clicked on this link you are probably looking for some more specific answers, so here is more information for you specifically about the English speaking services.

English Congregation
Worship Style
Overall our worship would be considered contemporary. (We almost always include a hymn or two.)

Length of Service
The English service is from 11:00am-12:15pm. We have a Bible Study prior to the service at 10:00am. At times we have a potluck after church.

Preaching Style
On Sunday mornings the preaching is normally topical. Pastor Rich usually speaks on specific subjects with the goal of teaching how to live the Christian life on a practical manner. However, Pastor Rich also does expository preaching at times. (He recently did a series titled Going Deeper, going through 1 John, verse by verse.

You will find that Pastor Rich is passionate about Christianity, the Bible, and the Gospel.You will not be bored during the preaching time. You will certainly get spiritually fed.

One of the unique traits of Pastor Rich is that he is real. He is probably one of the most vulnerable pastors in the Seattle area.

You will find that Seattle Open Door Church is a safe place to worship God. You can come as you are. Our doors are truly open for anyone. No 'masks' are required to attend our church.

Many of our members are single. We do not have many families. We are praying for more families. If you are a family please check us out. We could certainly use more youth among us.

Ministry Opportunity
We are a smaller congregation so we do not have as many ministry opportunities as a larger church. However, we want to grow and reach more people so we are looking for gifted individuals to partner with us to reach out in greater ways in our community and within our church. If you have a passion for Jesus and ministry, please come and check us out. Maybe you and your family are an answer to prayer for our church. We are in need of additional worship team members and are looking for some individuals who have an envagelistic/outreach heart.

Wednesday Evenings
We have a mid-week service on Wednesday nights 7pm-8pm with prayer afterwards. Pastor Rich normally has a series where there is interaction between him and the attendees.

At times we have special services on Sunday nights at 6pm. We for sure have a Night of Worship on the last Sunday of the month.

At Seattle Open Door Church you will find people who Love God, Love People, Love Life.

Champion Movie

Champion Movie

Seattle Open Door Church paid for the two matinee showings of Champion-The Movie, at the Regal Parkway Plaza 12 Theater in Tukwila.We had over 150 people show up and by us paying for the two showings of the movie it brought the movie into the theater for at least a week.

Champion is a movie that addresses the topics of forgiveness, fatherhood, foster parenting and the power of second chances. CHAMPION depicts race car driver Sean Weathers' journey following a tragic on-track accident that rips apart his family, leaving him vulnerable to the last person on earth who should help him. There are scenes in the movie that every viewer will be able to relate to on a personal level. Ultimately the movie is a story about the power of God to change lives. This is a must see movie.

Go to Pastor Rich Blog to read some testimonials of what occurred because of the Champion movie.

The DVD for the movie comes out around Sept 2017. As soon as it is available we will be having a public showing of it at our church.
