Open Doors United Methodist Church is mentioned in a feature article by United Methodist Communications writer, Joe Iovino, posted October 26, 2018, on the UMC.org website. Several months ago, Joe did some research on churches that had adopted a variation of the UMC brand promise “Open Hearts. Open Minds. Open Doors” for their own name. He found us and interviewed Pastor Paul Woolverton, who was pastor here at that time. Our story is about the merging of Wells and Grace United Methodist Churches and adopting  the new name, Open Doors United Methodist Church. Pastor Paul is quoted: "While we always considered ourselves a church of open doors—and minds and hearts too,” Woolverton shares, “our new name is now more a symbol of open doors leading out to serve others, instead of just open to receive people.”

The paragraphs about Open Doors in Wells and Kiester are located about halfway into the article. Click on the link below to read it.
