A Welcome Message from Pastor Derron and Lyn-Felice Calvin

Welcome to the Seattle Open Door Church (SODC) website. I am glad you have chosen to spend a few moments looking around, discovering our church family. As I describe Seattle Open Door Church to people, I like to use the phrase: Real People, Seeking God, and Loving Life.

We are a group of people coming from a variety of backgrounds. Some of our people have struggled with addictions much of their life, while we have church members who have been attending SODC for over 65 years. We have single parents with young children and widows with great, great grandchildren. Our attendees represent a variety of races and cultures.

Our hope is that all visitors will feel loved and welcomed at SODC to the point that they will feel comfortable being 'who they are', and yet feel challenged to become who God has for them to be, wholly devoted followers of Jesus. There is room at SODC for agnostics, spiritual seekers, backsliders on a journey to come back to Jesus and to individuals who are sold out to Jesus Christ.

While you are browsing our website, you will learn about Who We Are, What We Offer, and find valuable resources. I encourage you to check us out on the web, but that will only give you a glimpse of who we are. The best way to learn about SODC is to come on a Sunday morning service at 10am Bible Study, 11am Church Service, or 7pm Wednesday night Bible Study. Hope to See You!!!
