Are you struggling with depressionanxietyangerrelationship issueseating disordersaddictioncodependency, or any other hurts, hangups, or habits?

Temple Celebrate Recovery can help you find healing through our Christ-centered, 12-step ministry. With an emphasis on God's power to transform our lives, a process for ongoing change, and the support of fellow sojourners in recovery, you can experience the freedom you have been looking for!

Every Friday night, starting at 6 p.m. for dinner, Celebrate Recovery's doors are open for you to come share in the experience of change. This is not a "class", so you are welcome to join us anytime you choose. The large group begins at 7 p.m. with music, followed by an inspiring and challenging message or a powerful testimony of a changed life. Gender specific and issue specific open share groups start at 8 p.m. You are welcome to begin attending these share groups immediately and noyou don't have to share.

We'd love to see you at our Friday meetings where CHANGE IS POSSIBLE. If you have any questions about this life-changing ministry, please feel free to contact me.

God bless!

Temple Choir

At Temple, we value authentic worship that glorifies God and inspires people. We strive to work in unity to create quality music that leads people of every generation into the presence of God. Our choice of music varies and is as diverse as the community in which we are located.

The Temple Choir is the anchor of the Temple Worship Ministry and focuses on leading our congregation in a majority of the services at Temple, as well as taking advantage to share the Gospel through song in the local community.

The Temple Worship Ministry includes opportunities for all ages utilizing the Temple Kid's Ministry Band, the Temple Student Band, and the Temple Celebrate Recovery Band, as well as the occasional Kids' and Youth Choirs. We believe in the power of corporate worship and we encourage our congregation to sing and worship along with us.

The Temple Worship Ministry is made up of people, just like you, who have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ and who want to express their deep gratitude in song. If you are interested in joining one of Temple's Worship Ministry teams, please feel free to contact me.

Temple Student Ministries

Temple Student Ministry is passionate about helping students connect to God, connect to others and connect to their purpose. We love what we do here and have a heart to see students lives be changed. 

We meet every Wednesday at 6:30 where we play games, worship God, and hear a message that not only challenges us, but puts the desire in us to make a difference in our community. We have connect groups that meet every Wednesday where we do life together and rely on each other for support.

We cannot wait to meet you! See you Wednesday!

Temple Children’s Ministries

Temple Children's ministry desires children to encounter God, His works, and develop healthy lifestyles and relationships. Our goal is to teach the kids Bible-based truths found in Scripture so they can make the choice to not only follow Christ but to have a personal relationship with Him, to be obedient to God, and to show others what a fulfilling walk with Jesus looks like.

Temple Children's ministry meets Sunday mornings at 9:00and 10:45 a.m. as well as Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:45 p.m. So bring your kids and their friends to meet Jesus and have an amazing time!

The Learning Center

Temple Learning Center is a full day preschool that ministers to children from birth to age five. We also have before and after school care for elementary school students and a full day summer camp for students in Kindergarten through fifth grade.

The Learning Center team is committed to representing Christ well in the lives of our students, families, co-workers, and as active members of our community. We are passionate about sharing the love of Christ while providing a safe and clean learning environment. Our staff has two goals for our students: spiritual development and academic excellence.

Our Bible-based curriculum ensures that we attain both of these goals by the time our students graduate. Our prayer is that each child will walk away with the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and having the desire and equipment to share that knowledge with others.
