progressive – contemplative – authentic
Sundays at 6:00pm
Open Door is a worship gathering featuring candlelight, community, and contemplative music.
Gather with us just before 6pm and grab a cup of coffee (if you like). The service is intended to be as informal as possible.
Worship at Open Door takes place around tables
Worship begins with the drone of a single bowl as those gathered take a seat at a table. There is singing, scripture, a brief sermon, and reflection on the message with others at the table. There is also a time for communal sharing of prayer concerns. An individual’s personal testimony of God’s grace in our lives leads the congregation to communion.
Following communion all are invited into the kitchen for light bites and continued fellowship. There is space in the Assembly Room after worship for those who would like to pray together.
First Congregational Church of Houston is located at 10840 Beinhorn Rd.
Open Door worship gathering takes place in the Assembly Room.
