March 17, 2020 UPDATE


Baptist Temple Family,

In light of the current ever-changing situation, our Leadership Team has been in constant discussion and prayer regarding COVID-19. In compliance with the recommendations from our President, our medical experts, and our Governor to postpone large gatherings, here is our immediate course of action:

  • Effective immediately ALL gatherings on our campus are canceled.
  • This includes all Sunday services, mid-week events, and other ministry activities until further notice.
  • Funerals and memorial services are exempt from the CDC recommendations. However, we will not have the most up to date information regarding those arrangements. Please check with local funeral homes for updates or changes to previously scheduled funerals or memorial services.

What is the plan for Sunday and what is our responsibility?

  • Continue to Worship! Join us this Sunday for our Facebook Live worship experience at 10:30 AM. We are also planning other Facebook live events and resources that will be made available to our children, students, and families. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for updates and details!
  • Continue to Give. Baptist Temple is a church on the move. We will continue to serve and minister to our families and community as well as through our international missions program. You can give HERE.
  • Continue to Share. Look for ways to share love, share resources, share hope, and share Gospel conversations.
  • Continue to Pray. There are many families in our community, state, nation and world who need God’s protection and strength. Let us continually go to God with our concerns, needs, praise, and thanksgiving on behalf of ourselves and others.

Our pastors and staff are still in the office and will continue following up on every need we know about. So, it is important for you to keep us notified of any emergency, death, or medical need by calling the church office at 765-825-5196. You can also contact us on Facebook or email us at
