Christian Education

Sunday School

Sunday School is offered for all ages, from age 3 through adult on Sunday mornings from September until May at 10:00-11:00 am, following Sunday worship.

Open Doors UMC is taking part in a whole-church experience where everyone is reading and studying The Story. The Story is a book of selections from the Bible, arranged chronologically, that reads like a novel. The congregation is participating through a Sunday morning sermon series, adult small groups, and children and youth classes. During this unique 31-week experience, every member of the family reads their own version of The Story.  During Sunday School, children dig deeper and focus on the story of the day. Every class - children, youth, and adults - will be studying the same story at the same time, literally on the same page.

The children get 20 minutes of music time and 40 minutes of lesson time.

For the 2018/2019 year, parents are asked to fill out the Family Information and Consent form and return it to the church office by September 16. Thank you!


Confirmation is offered every other year for junior high students. The Pastor teaches this class along with some helpers. The next class will begin in the fall of 2019.

Grow Groups

Adult classes to challenge and strengthen a person's Christian faith and biblical knowledge. Classes vary and are held every 6 weeks or so on Sunday mornings in Kiester and Wednesday evenings in Wells.

In the fall of 2018, Open Doors will have two Grow Groups: The Case For Christ and The Story adult study classes. The Case For Christ meets Mondays at 7:00 pm at the Wells Campus from September 10-October 22. The Story has three opportunities for adult classes: Sundays at 9:15 a.m. at the Kiester Campus, Sundays at 10:00 a.m. at the Wells Campus, and Wednesdays at 5:45 p.m. at the Wells Campus.
