“And [God] gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God…” (Ephesians 4:11-13)
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!

Weekly discipleship opportunities for Young Adults
Before You Say "I Do" - Sundays at 9 a.m.
Starting Sunday Feb 2 at 9 a.m., we will host our first pre-marital class called “Before You Say I Do.” The class will last 7 weeks and will be open to couples who are engaged or have been married for less than 2 years. Each class session will be taught by one of our ministers and their spouse, and the topics will include: Love Languages, Biblical Foundations, Intimacy, Finances, Communication/Conflict Resolution, Love & Respect, and In-Laws. In addition to the class sessions, each engaged/newlywed couple will be assigned a “Mentor Couple,” who will meet once a week with them for the duration of the class and discuss the topics that are covered. The class will conclude with an In-Law Luncheon on 3/15 from 11:45 a.m. – 1 p.m., for which parents of the couples will be invited to attend. To join the online group and receive updates, click here.
Work as Worship - Wednesdays from 6-7 p.m.
Work as Worship is a 6-week study that we will be doing on Wednesday nights, from March 18 through April 29th (we will take off the week of Spring Break, April 1). Click here to join the group online, and see below for a more detailed description of the study!
"Many Christians—from the CEO to the teacher to the stay-at-home mom—spend a great deal of time working and yet do not realize how their work intersects with their faith. They compartmentalize their faith to Sunday morning and see the rest of their week as having little to do with their walk with God. Scripture, however, makes no division between the sacred and secular parts of our lives. God gives us our work, talent and skills so that through them we might worship Him.
This six-part Bible study resource will challenge all of us to consider the reason God calls us to work. It will cause you to consider why He may have you in your current position and encourage you to look beyond how your job makes you feel and see purpose and significance in your work. We have been called to work with excellence, integrity, and diligence, and our careers are opportunities to be on mission for Christ in the marketplace. God gives us great potential for impact on our families, churches, communities and the world through the blessing of our work."
