Open Door Youth Group is a safe and welcoming place for youth (grades 6-12) to explore their faith. A Confirmation Class usually takes place once a year for youth wishing to officially join the church.
Open Door Churches Youth Group (School Year)
The youth group gathers on Sunday afternoons from 12:30 to 2 p.m. at First United Methodist Church of Salem in a fun and supportive group to practice living out our faith through fellowship, worship, studying scriptures, praying for each other and reaching out in mission. Check their Facebook page for their monthly location. We meet weekly for good food, challenging discussions, fun games, and community service projects.
Open Door Churches Summer Youth Group
The youth group gathers during the summer months on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 8 p.m. We’ll meet most Tuesdays in the summer from 6:30-8:00 and will do a variety of activities like mini golf, lazer tag, water balloon fights, and attend a baseball game. We should have the complete summer schedule soon. Check our Facebook page for updates!
Each year the youth are given the opportunity to spend a week away on a mission trip and we participate in the United Methodist camping program both in the summer and winter. We would love to have you join us.
Saturdays of Service – Once a quarter, we gather together to go out to serve our community! Dates and activities can be found here.
Many other small mission projects come up throughout the year. Soup kitchens and Marion/Polk Food Share are two examples of this. Any youth are encouraged and welcome to participate. For more information and upcoming events, check out the youth’s Facebook page.
We have lots of great camping opportunities in places throughout Oregon and Idaho. Click here to find out information about camps this summer.
