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!
