Category: What to Expect
Seattle Open Door Church is committed to reaching out into our local community.
For the Spring and Summer of 2017 we have some upcoming events planned. Not all the details have been worked out, and there certaily will be other events, but here are some events taking place in the next few months.
In May and in June we will having at least two Gas Buy-Downs. As soon as we finalize dates we will post them.
- What is It?-For two hours our church members pump gas at a local gas station. Along with pumping gas we clean windshields, we pray for individuals, we give hope, and we share our story of how God has touched our lives. At the end of the event we give the customer .25 for each gallon of gas they purchased.
- Why Gas Buy-Downs? Many times people see the church as an entity that wants to take and take. We want to break the mindset. We want to give hope to people. Just giving back a few dollars to someone who has littlle helps to give a message of hope. To see people accept Christ in their life. To let our community know more about SODC.
On May 20 the movie CHAMPION will be coming out in local theaters. It 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.
Seattle Open Door Church will be providing free tickets for the Saturday, May 20, matinee showings of the movie (12:45pm or 3:00pm). Click here to RSVP your free tickets.
Since the movie is on forgiveness we will be also providing a free DVD with the Forgiveness Lessons from the series Moving Beyond the Past by Senior Pastor Richard Dover. There will also be a free online course available.
