Welcome to our class. We hope to see you soon!

We are an eclectic class with members of all ages and varied backgrounds and experiences.
And we find that this variety adds a lot of sparkle and insight to our discussions. Also, we most
often use curriculum with a short video element that boosts conversation and discovery.
The motto of the United Methodist Church, “Open Hearts, Open Doors” could easily be that of
the Open Door Sunday School Class. We encourage you to join us any time.


O Lord,
For forests tall and oceans deep,
for canyons wide and mountains steep,
for sunset skies of pink and gold,
for every sunrise we behold;
for winter's snow and springtime's thaw,
for summer's warmth and autumn's awe,
for roofs that keep the rain away,
for walls that hold it all at bay:
we have none to thank,
O Lord, but Thee.
For work that puts food on the table,
for health and rest to keep us able,
for friends and family all around us,
for years to come, may they surround us;
for soldiers fighting for our peace,
for days to come when wars may cease,
for hope, so burdens won't enslave us,
for Thy forgiveness which will save us:
we have none to thank,
O Lord, but Thee.
For feast, and those with whom we share it,
for loving hands that did prepare it,
for all that makes this life worth living,
we take this time on this Thanksgiving
to bow our heads and bend a knee
and pause to look around and see.
For all that was, is, and shall be
we have none to thank,
O Lord, but Thee.
