Every Sunday morning we provide a safe place where kids meet Jesus on their own level. We are passionate about creating an environment where your child feels welcomed, loved and accepted. Our great group of volunteers and staff believe the Bible is not boring and they strive to make learning about Jesus exciting and applicable for your kids.

We use Orange Curriculum by the ReThink Group. Orange is a strategy that combines the two main influences in a child’s life: home and church to fuel passion for Jesus in the next generation. We strive to help not only the kids but the entire family through handouts given every week to continue the conversation at home.

Open Door Kidz at the Edenton Campus has separate classrooms for babies, toddlers, preschool, K – 1st grade, and 2nd – 4th grade. Each room is able to provide age-appropriate activities, songs and teachings. Open Door Kidz at the Bertie Campus is divided into babies, toddlers and K – 4th grade.

A Note from the Edenton Campus Children’s Pastor

As a church, we strongly believe that your faith is influenced heavily by what you are taught as a child. We strive to partner with parents in laying the building blocks of this faith and fostering a relationship with Christ. We also believe that the Bible is not too complicated for kids to begin to understand and learn. We teach with Bible scriptures and fun activities that engage the kids and teach them how to apply what they have learned to their lives. We have dedicated volunteers who provide small groups for 4 year olds-4th graders. This is a great way for your child to connect with an adult who will grow to know them and invest in their spiritual growth. We want the same things for your kids as we do for our own: to know Christ as their Savior and walk on the path He has made for them. We pray that you and your kids will enjoy your experience at Open Door Church and become part of our church family.

A Note from the Bertie Campus Pastor

We realize that children are a gift from God. As both a father and grandfather, I can identify with the need to provide a safe and effective learning environment in which we can teach Christ-centered truths in a fun setting. We have a wonderful group of skilled volunteers who have been screened and provide weekly Bible-based teaching mingled with various activities that creative an atmosphere that draws them back week after week. Whether it is a nursery, pre-school or child through 5th grade, we have a place for them.

We know the safety of your children is of the utmost importance. Open Door Kidz Edenton has a check-in and check-out process for that reason. Check-in for the kids at the Edenton Campus takes place at the second set of doors you see as you drive into our parking lot. The Open Door Kidz lobby has check-in stations and attendants to help you with the process. Once your information has been entered into the computer, 2 stickers are printed. One will go to the child and one will stay with the adult who checks in the child. Check-out will take place at your child’s room. You give your sticker to the volunteer in the class to ensure matching numbers with your child’s when picking them up. The Bertie Campus also has security measures in place, including a dedicated person overseeing traffic in and out of the building.
