Here is a note from Lauri at Open Door Fellowship:
OPEN DOOR FELLOWSHIP CHURCH
285 ESPERANZA RD
UNITED is a Night of Worship hosted at Open Door Fellowship.
It is a Parish-wide invitation to UNITE under the cross of Christ to worship His name and proclaim his death, burial and resurrection.
UNITED will be led by Caleb Willis, Minister of Music; Fairview Baptist Church and Juliana Handy of Open Door Fellowship.
Caleb and Juliana have organized a volunteer worship team consisting of instrumentalists/vocalists from area churches.
We’re believing that this night of worship is going to be an incredible encounter with the presence of God as we UNITE and seek His face together.
