Open Door Church recently bought a building on Highway 17, near our Edenton Campus (the former Alexander Electric building). After much thought and prayer, we've decided to begin the process of turning the building into a daycare/preschool and multipurpose community outreach center. The response from the community has been amazing. So many people want to know more information, which we simply don't have at this time. The interior of the building will need to be completely redone. If you would like to know more about the project as updates become available, please sign up below.
LATEST UPDATE, a note from Pastor Stephen Mizell
Our Freedom To Serve campaign is well underway and many of you are faithfully giving your gifts. There are many incredible things that will be accomplished because of your generosity, both in our region and around the world.
One of the first projects we will undertake is the renovation of our property on Highway 17 to be used as a daycare and preschool. In an effort to help keep us all moving toward the vision laid out before us, I want to provide you with some updates about that project.
We currently have our second set of drawings under review. We had hoped to expand the building initially, but it appears as though that will be part of a second phase. We are currently focusing on how to get the building functional as a daycare so that we can serve the people of our community.
One of the things we are exploring is the possibility of using our current children’s department at the church as a temporary daycare so that we get things up and running sooner. We are in the very early stages of these conversations; trying to understand what we would need to do to make this happen. One of the first steps is participation in a pre-licensing class. I will be attending this class in Raleigh in June so that the church can begin the licensing process.
