Remarks From The Pastor - March 24, 2019

Welcome to Temple Baptist Church.

Senior Pastor Tom Porter

Senior Pastor Tom Porter

Good morning family and friends of Temple Baptist!  If you are visiting for the first time today, we welcome you and pray the Lord will speak to you during the service.  Please visit the Welcome Center in the lobby if you want more information about our church.  I will be in the lobby and would love to meet you. 

What a blessing it is to see our church members making a conscious effort to fellowship and connect with each other.  This past Monday night, 15 men connected for Wing Night at Gator Dockside!  As a pastor, seeing these men, some meeting for the first time, getting to know each other, praying as a group and enjoying each other’s company made my heart rejoice.  One man went to work early so he could make it!  Our next men’s event will be our prayer breakfast on April 13th at 8 am.  Later that night, we men have the opportunity to attend the “Better Man Ministries” Conference.  Last week, Coach and Mrs. Briggs attended a Teen Leadership Conference in order to more effectively move those teenagers who have a desire to serve the Lord into a leadership position.  Two weeks ago, we had 230 attend PrimeTimers!  My wife, Becky, and her leaders are busy teaching our children about the Bible and the love of God.   Our VBS material has come in and preparations are on the way.  Becky and DiAnne Barnes are studying up for the next ladies Bible study.  Our Deacons have just been given their list of “families” they will be ministering to.  You will be given the name of your Deacon soon.  The best way to stay connected is to get connected to REALM CONNECT on your computer, laptop or smart phone.  See Michelle Jackson to set up a time for helping you do this.  As always, you may go to to stay connected with all that is going on here at TBC.
