The United Methodist Church



Worship in a relaxed and family friendly environment at Open Doors United Methodist Church. We offer a style mix of traditional and contemporary worship at two campuses in Wells and Kiester, MN. The Wells Campus is the larger of the two. Its facility is equipped with projection; a staffed nursery for babies through 4 years; and is wheelchair accessible to the basement and sanctuary level. Hearing assist devices are also available.

Following the 9:00 a.m. Worship Service during the months of September through May, there is Sunday School for everyone age three and up.  Or take the opportunity to visit with others over a cup of coffee, either before or after worship.  Special Sunday studies are offered throughout the summer. 

We raise our voices and clap our hands - but most important - we open our hearts!  We are an open and loving community and we love to welcome new people to our vibrant Sunday worship.  Join us!

In case of bad weather, we will move inside.  Please bring your own chair and maintain social distancing. Masks are optional outside as long as you remain 6 feet apart, but if inside, masks are mandatory. We are continuously assessing the situation and taking recommendations from public health officials and directives from our Bishop.
