Teen Ministry at Open Door Church in Chillicothe, Ohio
We're focused one very simple thing from Jr High to High School at Open Door Church : creating disciples of Jesus Christ. Through teaching, worship and just hanging out we want to help prepare your kids for life.
Jr High Ministry : Grades 7-8
about our class:
Our focus is very simple: challenging kids to grow in their walk with God and providing real life examples they can relate to. We rely on the parents to enforce the principles and truths that we teach from God's word, making it a team effort. It takes a village to raise a child, so we are just one piece of the puzzle.
A typical class on Sunday morning starts at 10am and lasts until 11am, so that the kids can participate in worship with the rest of the church. Grades 6th through 8th can come early to hangout and talk, but we get started right at 10am since our class time isn't too long. It is our goal that every person walks out of the room with something to improve their walk with Christ so they can make an impact in their community.
Sunday Mornings 11am-11:30am
Classes meet the first three Sunday mornings of every month at 10am for Jr. High students (7th-8th) grade. Class will run from 10am-11am. All Jr High students will return back to the adult service to participate in worship.
High School Ministry : Grades 9-12
about our teens
Open Door Youth prides itself on creating a friendly, safe, and welcoming atmosphere. Our gatherings are a time where students can come and just be themselves while growing closer to Jesus Christ. The driving force behind our ministry is The Great Commission (Matthew 18:16-20). We are training our students to be disciples and encouraging them to disciple others as well.
It is our goal to nurture teenagers just as they are so they can feel comfortable being themselves. Teenagers have enough pressure at school to be the best and the last thing we want is for them to feel a pressure to act a certain way at church. We encourage our students to "remove the mask" during a youth meeting. If you are looking for a place to fit in just the way you are, then our youth group is the place for you.
Sundays Evening 5:30-7pm
The youth ministry meets every Sunday evening from 5:30-7pm. Grades 7th-12th are welcome to attend.
- This service will include some kind of ice breaker/game/fun time, we will then move into worship and teaching.
Wednesday Evenings 7pm - 830pm
We hold a teen-led Bible study every Wednesday evening. Please call the church to check for meeting location; It varies each month.
