New to Temple?

You are welcome here!

The first connection most people make with Temple is in worship together.
We know coming to an unfamiliar church community is difficult. Below are several questions first-time guests may like to know before coming. If you’d like to ask any other questions, feel free to contact Pastor Chris at chris@gadlage.com. We look forward to meeting you in person soon!


What should I wear?

Come as you are! You will see people dressed up and in suits seated along with people in jeans or slacks and sandals. The important thing is that you are here to worship!


Where do I park?

Parking is available on three sides of the church building.  The parking lots nearest to the Sanctuary are in front (east side facing US 41) and in back (west side facing the apartment complex).  There are signs on those two entrances indicating the Sanctuary is inside those entrances.


Is Child Care available?

At present, we provide a Children’s Worship experience for our younger ones, ages 3/4-5th Grade.  It is staffed by qualified servants.  Police background checks are required of all people who work with children.


Should I take Communion if it’s offered?

Our Communion table is open to all who choose to participate.
We believe Communion is a way for God to pour grace into us, and every person is a ‘target’ for God’s grace. 


What do I do if I’d like to join the church?

Speak to the pastor or complete an online Connection Card.  At various times during the year, we will offer a Membership Preparation Class for people interested in membership.
