Young Adults

 

The Young Adult Ministry of Temple Baptist Church (20's-30's) is committed to making disciples of all nations. Our desire is to see every Young Adult: 1) mature in Christ, 2) live on mission in the home/workplace, and 3) be equipped to do “the work of the ministry.” To accomplish this goal, we provide several opportunities for education and discipleship of young adults. On Sunday mornings, we offer Young Adult Sunday School classes at both 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. (see below for more details). During the school year, we offer several small-group Bible studies on Wednesday nights and other week nights. More information on each of these weekly offerings is listed below. We would love for you to come grow with us and join what God is doing in our Young Adult ministry here at Temple!

"Who is Jesus? Why did He come to earth? How can I know Him?

We live in a world where there’s a lot of confusion about Jesus. Too often people want to shape Him and His message to fit their personal needs or agendas. So how can we know the truth?

Join Seamless author Angie Smith in this 8-session search for truth as she unfolds the story of our matchless Savior—His mission, miracles, and message. Whether you’ve walked with Him for years or are meeting Him for the first time, this study will deepen your understanding of Jesus through biblical, historical, and cultural insight and help you see Him less as an iconic figure and more as an intimate friend."

Kingdom Man - Men's Bible Study

When: Wednesday, September 16th, 5:45 p.m.
Where: Room 76, @Temple
How: click here to join the online group and begin receiving updates

"Kingdom Man: Every Man’s Destiny, Every Woman’s Dream is a 6-session Bible study for adult men by Dr. Tony Evans. This study is designed to empower men to exercise the God-given dominion they were created for by giving them a Kingdom understanding, vision, and perspective on their identity and responsibilities along with practical steps on how to become a man who rules his world well.

Our culture has redefined manhood by emasculating men through a repositioning of the role. Men are portrayed as weak, self-serving, and unfocused. The Bible clearly communicates that man was created to exercise dominion over the various areas of his life, taking responsibility for himself and others entrusted to his care. When a man functions within the principles of biblical manhood, those around him benefit from his leadership and care. This study challenges and equips men to fully understand their position under God, learning to operate under the authority of Jesus Christ."
