SUNDAYS AT RED DOOR
We gather on Sundays for a traditional Episcopal worship service and The Holy Eucharist in a relaxed atmosphere. Come as you are! We invite everyone to participate and receive communion no matter where you are on your faith journey. Gerald Ashby coordinates music for our Sunday services and helps us welcome many gifted musicians to enrich our worship and our lives. Our services begin at 1:30 pm.
ART AND SANCTUARY TIME (SUNDAYS)
Do you ever just need a place to be? Somewhere you can relax, see friends, have some coffee or a snack and participate in something that feeds your spirit? We open our doors on Sundays at 12:00 pm for just that. Our art table is hosted by Hank Methvin and Laura Elliott who hold the space for all to feel comfortable with artistic expression in any form or level. It’s very relaxing and a great way to begin your Sunday afternoon!
TUESDAY'S AT THE RED DOOR
This is about listening to the scripture in a different way. The Red Door carries forward the ancient (350 A.D.) monastic practice of Lectio Divina on Tuesday mornings. We gather together to read the gospel and listen to what it might be saying to us personally and how we can apply it in our own our lives. Come and experience this time of meditation, reflection and prayer with us!
COMMUNITY MEAL / BRUNCH
Everyone is served at The Red Door. There is NO requirement to attend a worship service. A community meal is served every Sunday immediately following our worship service around 2:30 pm. On Tuesdays we offer a late breakfast, coffee and snacks beginning at 10:30 am following Lectio Divina. We also offer brown bags with non-perishable items for take away on Tuesdays or to those who visit us during the week.
SOLE MATE SHOE CLOSET (SUNDAYS)
Most of our community puts many miles on their feet in a day. Maintaining healthy feet is a BIG part of remaining healthy overall. A closet stocked with new or gently used shoes in all shapes and sizes is open on Sundays. Everyone is invited to come in and choose a pair that has that “just right” fit.
THE BASICS SUPPLY CLOSET (SUNDAYS)
Our supply closet is open to everyone and is stocked with “The Basics”. Socks, underwear, soap, razors, shaving cream, shampoo, lotion, kleenex and toilet paper are the most requested items by those who visit us. “The Basics” are items most of us take for granted, but are not always accessible or affordable for the homeless or working poor in our community.
COUNSELING BY A LICENSED PROFESSIONAL (TUESDAYS)
Our licensed professionals offer counseling in a safe and convenient location known to the community. No fees are charged to clients. This program is mandatory for those who are members of The Good Works! crew, but is open to everyone and available on Tuesdays at The Red Door.
More than band-aids, this is a place to receive referrals and information regarding community health care. Basic first aid, vitamins, and over the counter medications for minor illnesses are offered with a dose of compassion. Wellness and health maintenance are encouraged and supported. The station is staffed by those who have current First Aid and CPR certification training.
GOOD WORKS! PROGRAM
Our work crews serve non-profit organizations in the greater Western North Carolina area that serve the greater good for all. Our program offers dignity through work and supportive counseling to those ready to move forward. Participation offers positive interaction in the workplace, a solid work history and hope for a better life.
