Sunday Worship Experience
The focus of our worship is God. This can clearly be seen in the selection of scripture, music, and prayer in our services. Because we believe that different worship styles are needed to cater to the different lifestyles of people, we offer three worship services most Sunday mornings. Our Blended Worship Service is at 9 a.m. in the Sanctuary and our contemporary worship experience, the gathering, meets upstairs at 9 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. in the Gathering Space. Our Evening Worship is at 6 p.m. in the Chapel. Here is a link to our Sunday Schedule for any changes that might occur.
Bible Study groups (Sunday School) meet on Sunday mornings at 10:15 a.m. The life of our church happens in these groups. No matter what season of life you’re in, we have Bible Study groups to encourage and ignite spiritual growth, deepen relationships with others, and serve our community, state, nation, and the world through missions and evangelism.
�What do I wear?
Good news! There’s no dress code at Temple. While here on Sunday, you may notice that our people aren’t defined by one particular style of dress. From “very casual” to “Sunday Best,” our congregation is a collection of ordinary people who are different ages, come from different backgrounds, but unify with one purpose
What about Childcare?
Childcare is provided for preschoolers from birth to four years during each worship service by caring members who teach God’s Word. Preschool Plus is an alternative worship time for Pre-K 4 and Kindergartners providing a media-driven, interactive worship experience for kids including worship songs, music videos, scripture memory verses, weekly missions emphasis, and more! It is held in The Journey Place Multipurpose Room during the 9 and 11:15 a.m. worship hours.
During the Bible Study hour, there are classes for children from birth through the sixth grade. This allows parents the chance to attend a worship service and Bible Study. For more information on our Preschool and Children’s Ministry, call 318-255-3745 or email .
What about Parking?
There are over 600 parking places available on campus in the five lots surrounding the building. Shuttles run continuously to accommodate guests who park in the two lots furthest from the building. Handicap and Guest Parking
