|VISITING TEMPLE BAPTIST CHURCH|
Visiting any church for the very first time can be a tough experience. Where to go? What to wear? What time to show up? What can my children expect? What can I expect? These and many more questions surface. We want to put you at ease! Your first visit to Temple Baptist will be refreshing, friendly, and enjoyable for your whole family. We want you to experience inspiring music, helpful teaching and preaching, friendly people, and a place where you feel welcome and "at home"! Here are answers to a few questions about what you might expect on your first visit.
1. Times of Services
Sunday services are at 9 am, 10:30 am and 6 pm. We also have Sunday Bible study groups at 9:30 am. Wednesday night service and teen programs begins at 7 pm.
2. Finding and Navigating the Campus
Our campus is very visible at the intersection of Northshore Blvd. and FM 2499 (International Parkway). Greeters are located at every entrance and will be able to direct you to the right classes and services to meet the needs of your family. They will also be able to assist with any other questions you may have.
3. What can my children expect?
Starting with excellent nurseries, there is something special for every age child from birth through Sr. High. Safe, clean, and highly staffed nurseries are provided for every service for children four years old and under. On Sunday mornings, fun, friendly, and Bible-centered classes are offered for children ages five through fifth grade through our KIDZJam ministry. Separate classes for Jr. High and Sr. High students are offered during various service times.
4. What's on the schedule for adults, and what should I expect?
Most adults attend our traditional worship service where they enjoy the beautiful and inspiring music of the choir, orchestra, ensembles, and soloists. The music is always followed by a clear, helpful, and challenging Bible message from Pastor Wallace. This service is a little over one hour in length. Also, before the morning service, there are Adult Bible Study Classes for couples and singles. These classes are smaller group settings where you are invited to meet people, enjoy perhaps some coffee and donuts, and hear a teaching lesson more directly applicable to your life-stage. The best way to get to know people at Temple Baptist Church is to visit one of these adult Bible classes.
5. How should I dress?
There is not a dress code at Temple Baptist Church for members or guests. Our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress; however, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here at Temple Baptist!
6. Are there services at other times?
Yes. We have a Sunday evening service (completely different from Sunday morning) that begins at 6:00 p.m. Again, in this service you'll enjoy the choir and special music as well as a challenging and helpful message from Pastor Wallace. We also meet on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. for a mid-week Bible study. If you can't be our guest on Sunday morning, we hope you'll visit with us during another service time.
7. Am I expected to participate in the offering?
No. We don't invite you to Temple Baptist Church for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God's Word, and a place where you can grow in God's grace. Please don't feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.
If there's something we missed on this list, just give us a call, or ask someone when you arrive. Whether you're new to the area and looking for a church home, or if it's been a long time since you've attended church at all, we hope your first visit at Temple Baptist will be awesome! We exist to serve you and your family, and we are looking forward to meeting you personally. We hope you'll feel right at home from the very first moment you step onto campus! Let us know how we can serve you better, and we hope to meet you this Sunday!
