We know you want to be together, we know God wants His people together (Hebrews 10:25) and we know you want worship to be safe. The Lord grants us wisdom (James 1:5) and that is what we are seeking as we re-unite the local church over the next few months. The following is our initial plan to begin a regathering of God's people at Temple Baptist Church. Please remember, this plan is fluid as we keep our eyes open to God's plan and the health of our community in this time.
Timeline for Regathering
Phase 1 of Temple’s transition back to live gatherings includes meeting in smaller groups in homes to experience worship together. Follow the link below for some ideas and guidelines to help you consider options and discern how to effectively and safely, connect with others if you meet in homes.
Phase 2: May 31- ***UPDATED*** Due to possible inclement weather this weekend, our May 31st on campus outdoor worship celebration has been cancelled. Instead we are moving our worship service into the sanctuary. To practice safe, social distancing, we are limiting attendance to 150 people. We will still celebrate our graduates, worship together and enjoy a take out lunch served by our deacons. Please register below to let us know you will be attending!
Phase 3: June 7 - TBD - We will offer two on campus worships each week at 9am and 11am, seating will be limited to 150 people per service. No childcare provided. No on campus small groups or other age-graded activities. Please follow the link below, choose "select a date" and register for the date and time of the service you would like to attend. If you have any questions, please contact our church office at 910-483-7620.
Phase 4: TBD - Normal Temple activities to be resumed.
