Due to the current health crisis occuring here in our state and country, we have had to make some adjustments in our ministries here at Open Road Fellowship. It is of upmost importance to us that our kids remain safe as they interact with our Ministry Team. To accomplish this, we are currently using online streaming to connect with the kids. By clicking on the appropriate date below, it will redirect you to the current Sunday's worship site for the kids. The site will have a link to take you to the online stream and also lesson materials for that day that can be downloaded for use. The chat line with the Ministry Team will open 15 minutes prior to the online stream. We desire that your kids continue to grow in Christ and know that they are loved. If you have any questions, you can contact Justin, Children's Ministry Director at Justin@openroadfellowship.com.
As the old saying goes, "It takes a village to raise a child." Here at Open Road Fellowship, we want to help invest in your children as if they are our own. Within our children's ministry, we teach the fundamentals of what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ and what he did for them. We teach our children through three principles:
Reaching out to others with the love of Christ
The main goal of Mini-Choppers, Tiny Tykes, and Little Crawlers is to bring children to Christ. Through these ministries, Christ is made known in the telling of God's story in scripture and the sharing of the life of Christ in us through our witness to the world.
We'd like to know you're coming, and we'll have the kids already pre-checked in. Simply let us know by clicking here.
UPCOMING KID'S CHURCH DATES
Due to the current health crisis occuring here in our state and country, we have had to make some adjustments in our ministries here at Open Road Fellowship. It is of upmost importance to us that our students remain safe as they interact with our Ministry Team. As we transition back to the campus, the students will meet at Hangar 316. We will continue to maintain social distancing to protect our students, but also allow them to return to a group enviroment for teaching, fun and games. We desire that your students continue to grow in Christ and know that they are loved. If you have any questions, you can contact Chris, Open Road Youth Director at Chris@openroadfellowship.com.
Open Road Students is a place where your 6th - 12th grader can come to hang out, have fun, learn some life skills, and most of all meet Jesus. Our Student team is committed to helping your student grow spiritually, but also personally. We understand the world is hard out there for your teenager, and we want to provide them a safe place to have a discussion. We learn a lot, but we also play a lot. Trust us, your student will have fun at Open Road Students.
Open Road Students meet at the church on Monday nights at 6 pm. Please be back to pick them up at around 7:30. The dress code is very casual (but modest) and be prepared sometimes to get wet or a little dirty as we love to play games outside.
We believe that worship is the key to opening the heart to receive the Word of God. Every Sunday, the worship team prepares to lead us into the presence of God. We use contemporary worship style to mostly appeal to those who don't know Christ. We understand that many people who grew up in church like hymns, but on Sunday, we desire to reach those that do not have a church background. Yes, the music is loud for some people, but there is a reason for that as well as the lights being low. We hope you come and experience worship with us.
If you have the gift of singing or have a musical talent that you would like to use, email our worship leader, Robby Corburn at email@example.com
At Open Road Fellowship Church, we believe we can do more together than apart. We fully understand that we can't do everything to effect this hurting world, so we partner with other ministries and organizations to make a difference. Our partnership doesn't just include money, it includes people. We don't send money where we can't send people.
The Hub is on a mission to give everyone in our city access to a restored life. Through the Lovewell Center and Purchased: Not For Sale, the Hub is impacting lives. Our partnership includes working in their Family Serve Day. Providing help at the Lovewell Center to complete projects. Some of our members have become volunteers with the Hub and Purchased. You can find out more about the Hub by visiting their website: thehubministry.org.
The Warrior Network is an amazing organization located around the Barksdale Airforce Base to create a culture where every Warrior serving in our Armed Forces receives support, finds value, has purpose, embraces potential, and uses their influence to make a difference. The Warrior Network began by simply wanting to bless some of our active-duty members with a Thanksgiving "Feast". Open Road Fellowship was right there that first night and TWN has grown tremendously. For more information about becoming part of the "Family" go to thewarriornetwork.org.
Our partnership with Plantation Park Elementary started by adopting one kindergarten class so that we could help the teachers love on the kids. Many of these kids come from broken homes, single-parent homes, or other challenges. We know someone is going to lie to them one day and say nobody loves them, and we want them to know that is a lie. We love them and Jesus loves them. After a couple years, we have now adopted the entire kindergarten department, five classrooms.
We start off with a Halloween party (what church does that...). We come in at Christmas and provide each kid with a wrapped toy, plus an unwrapped toy that they are asked to give away. Then we show back up for an Easter egg hunt. We will also swing in to read with the kids and show the motorcycles. What a blessing.
At Open Road Fellowship Church, we believe the church should do more outside the walls than inside. Many churches say this, but we live it. Once a month, we have a scheduled serve day that is usually done off campus. We do a lot of cooking with our cook trailer, we love to take a 2nd Sunday ride to eat and fellowship after church, and we know we need to have a presence at the local motorcycle club rallies around the Shreveport/Bossier area. If getting outside the walls to serve is good for you, come be a part of the Open Road Fellowship Family.
