Sunday morning offers two distinct types of worship services.
Our Sunday morning Blended Service is held at 9 a.m. in the Sanctuary. The Sanctuary Choir and Orchestra join our Minister of Music, Jeremy Asher, in leading the congregation in worship which includes a mix of traditional hymns and new worship songs.
Our Sunday Contemporary Worship Experience, called “the gathering,” is offered at 9 and 11:15 a.m. Under the leadership of our Associate Minister of Music, Chris Albritton, the gathering Band leads the church in worship with the newest worship music and a high-energy sound. The gathering worship space is located upstairs near the Family Life Center.
Combined Worship (for special church-wide celebrations)
For special events during the year, our congregation gathers in a Combined Worship Service in the Sanctuary. During our Combined Worship, our entire church family comes together to worship. Bible Study is held at 10 a.m. on the Sundays in which we have a Combined Worship. Please check the church calendar for these very special days of celebration.

�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 to: Come Gather Around the Word!
What about Childcare?
Childcare is provided for preschoolers from birth to three years during each worship service by caring members who teach God’s Word. 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 are available near every main entrance to the building.
Where are we located?
