Come join us in this great faith walk as women. We have a place for you!

Temple Women desire to grow in their faith walk and with each other. Bible Study opportunities are offered during the Fall and Spring. Additional times of fellowship with great women of Temple are offered throughout the year. We have much to learn from each other.

This study challenges women to let God break their hearts for a hurting, lost world and move them in compassion to lead people to Jesus. Nehemiah is a 7 week study that includes 7 video sessions and real-life ways to put feet to your faith.
