    What to Expect

     Where Would I Fit In?

    With adult Bible classes for married couples, single adults, newlyweds, college students, etc., Sunday school classes for beginners to seniors in high school, there’s a place for you in Sunday School at Temple.

    Sunday Bible Classes – 9:45 A.M. 

    During this time, adults can choose from a number of adult Bible classes to attend. These classes vary in size and focus.

    Classes are also available for children as young as four years old up to seniors in high school. These classes give them an opportunity to grow spiritually and learn vital biblical truths at a young age. Our bible Study classes begin at 9:45 a.m. and conclude at 10:30 a.m.

    This is the perfect opportunity for you and your family to meet other fellow believers and also learn great Bible truths.

    Child Care

    We also provide first-class nurseries and childcare for your newborn or baby, where they will be kept safe and well supervised. Our nursery staff is well-trained and experienced; they are good at what they do. The nursery is available every Sunday and Wednesday.

    Where Do I Park?

    Ample parking is available for all first time guests and members at Temple. We also have parking spots designated for the elderly and handicapped. We also have staff security personnel that keep watch over each of our parking lots before, during, and after each of our services.

    What Should I Wear?

    There is no strict dress code to attend our public services, but in case you’re wondering, a majority of our church members wear their “Sunday best.”

    Sunday Morning and Evening Services – 10:45 A.M. and 6:00 P.M.

    Every Sunday morning and Sunday evening, the main Sunday preaching service is held in the Main Auditorium with Dr. Scott Young. As you walk in, a friendly usher will greet you and be available for you to help you find a seat and answer any questions you may have.

    We believe in having a church service with good, uplifting hymns and spiritual songs that will stir and inspire you, prayer, and practical preaching of the Word of God from our pastor.

    Singing and Special Music

    Every service gives you an opportunity to join us in singing hymns and spiritual songs. You’ll also enjoy the music from the Choir in each of our Sunday services.

    Hope in the Word

    We consider the preaching of the Word of God to be the centerpiece of the service. 1 Corinthians 1:21 reads, “…it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.” Each service, Pastor Scott will bring an expositional message from the Word of God.

    Invitation

    At the end of the message, Pastor Scott will extend an invitation. This is a time for many to respond and make life-changing decisions. The decision may be to trust Christ as personal Savior or to grow deeper in your commitment to follow Christ. Whatever your decision may be, the altar is always open at Temple. For others, this is a time to bring needs to the Lord in prayer.

    Wednesday Evening of Prayer – 6:30 P.M.

    Wednesday nights are special at Temple. In our Main Auditorium, Pastor Scott Young leads the “Evening of Prayer” service. This is a special time of prayer at TBC. Each week, we spend time together in corporate prayer, intercessory prayer, and testimony of answered prayer. Prayer is the focus of this service. You don’t want to miss this most special time together with the family of God.
