CARE

Life is full of unexpected changes. These changes might be the death of a loved one, hospitalization, divorce, birth, preparing for and getting married, serious illness or injury, change in income or job loss. Open Door desires to walk alongside people who are experiencing times of transition and desire to experience God’s hope and healing. In addition to these care resources, we offer support groups and prayer groups. Contact: (763)416-5846, plus extension

Care Response Ministry

For those in need of emotional and spiritual care during hospitalization or long-term illness, as well as for those who are in need of a caring presence while grieving the loss of a loved one. This may include phone conversation, communion served at home and hospital visits. Please let us know if you or a family member are in need of these resources. Contact: Annie-Claude | ext 1300

Funerals | Grief Support

Partnering with the funeral home, and caterers, Open Door walks alongside a family to create a service that honors their loved one in an atmosphere of support and care. We also provide care and resources for ongoing grief support. Contact: Bob | ext 1302

Prayer Line

If you need prayer for a situation, you may bring your request to the Prayer Line. Though this is a

voicemail system and you leave a recorded message, our team of intercessors access the messages

daily and pray for each need. Messages remain on the Prayer Line for one week. We welcome updates. Prayer Line: ext 1374

Restoration through Prayer

Teams of two or three trained lay ministers are available for 60-90 minute individual, confidential prayer appointments. (These are not counseling sessions.) The team, partnering with the Holy Spirit, will support you as you share your needs. They will spend time with you in prayer, asking God to bring His kingdom more fully. Contact us to schedule an appointment. Please indicate if we may leave a message if we get your voicemail. Contact: Restoration through Prayer | ext 1373
