About Our Congregation

Welcome to Christian Temple!

We are a protestant congregation affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), a denomination that celebrates the diversity of all followers of Jesus and honors those whose faith traditions differ from ours.

We love to worship! Every week our worship is centered around a communion table which is open to everyone regardless of baptism or church membership. Our service is a blend of traditional and contemporary music, scripture, prayer, liturgy and sermon. We take the bible seriously-not literally- and we seek to offer in our worship the life-giving presence, wisdom and call of Jesus Christ.

We love children! Our worship service features a special time just for kids, followed by Sunday school. We have an excellent nursery for infants and toddlers. And we make an extra effort to involve children in all aspects of congregational life.

We love youth! Active middle and high school youth groups, featuring annual mission trips and regular meetings provide a safe place for young adults to explore who God is calling them to be.

We love service! Our congregational life is filled with opportunities to make the world a better place through hands-on service in the name of Jesus Christ.

We love to learn! From bible studies to book clubs, we believe God wants us to grow by “using our brains”, and to learn by listening to people whose views may differ from our own.

We love to have fun! We are firmly committed to the proposition that Jesus wants us to be filled with joy. Picnics, beach retreats, women’s and men’s groups all give us a chance to enjoy the “God” we see and feel in each other’s presence.

We love the environment! Christian Temple seeks to live as an environmentally friendly community of faith. We have been recognized by our denomination as a “Green Chalice Congregation” for our efforts on behalf of God’s creation.

We love EVERYONE! We are a racially diverse community committed to extending our welcome to gay, lesbian, transgender, and all people who may wonder if “the church” will accept them for who they are.
