Open Door Cafe and Day Center

An Update on the Open Door Café and Day Center

Bend Church is moving forward with this vital ministry we are thankful and excited for the ways in which Chuck Hemingway will allow us to move forward in a healthy, safe, and inclusive atmosphere. However, whenever there is a transition in leadership there will be questions about the capabilities of the new leader. To allay your concerns here are some of the questions we have been fielding answered by our new Coordinator of the Open Door, Chuck Hemingway.



The Open Door Café is open every Wednesday morning from 7:30am to 9:30am to serve a hot breakfast prepared in our kitchen and served in our Fellowship Hall. Breakfast is available to everyone who wants it, mostly homeless and marginally housed people from our community.
Volunteers shop, cook, serve, and clean up. We also spend time in fellowship with the Café guests, listening to them and offering encouragement and words of support. We often refer people in need to other church programs and forms of assistance, such as the Compassionate Care Ministry.

Our volunteers are rewarded with closer ties to each other and to the needs of others. We encourage you to join us!
