progressive – contemplative – authentic
Sundays at 6:00pm
Open Door is a worship gathering featuring candlelight, community, and contemplative music.
NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 crisis Open Door is on hiatus. You can learn more about the service below in case you would like to join us when we resume in person worship.
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.
