Welcome to






Methodist Temple strives to be a safe, nonjudgmental community in Jesus' name. We live out this vision by nurturing life-giving connections, practicing generous givenness, and cultivating presence to the Presence of God.  


covid-19 update

On Tuesday (November 17), Bishop Julius Trimble announced that "all churches should suspend in-person worship and in-person meetings of groups for the foreseeable future until the number of COVID cases improve. This will likely include making alternative plans for the holidays."

Based on this information, Methodist Temple has made the difficult decision to suspend

ALL in-person worship and indoor activities (small groups, etc.) until further notice.

A Note from Pastor Andy



Like you, I'm disappointed and saddened by news that we are to resume virtual worship and ministry activities. Let us use this time to remember that being the Church involves us living faithfully no matter where we are.


In the weeks ahead, we will make the best of these circumstances by being safe, but also challenging ourselves to find creative ministry possibilities. As always, my office is open and I would be happy to hear from you.


Pastor Andy

virtual worship

Are you missing Sunday morning worship?  Enjoy the worship video we recorded last Sunday.  You can always find recordings of previous services on our YouTube channel, and the sermon videos on our Messages & Media page.



We are currently CLOSED to all in-person worship and activities (see more information above); HOWEVER, we are offering several types of virtual events throughout Advent this year.


In this worship series for Advent, we contemplate the many ways we prepare ourselves for the coming of the Christ Child on Christmas, taking cues from the psalms of old and from those whom God chose to play a part in the story of our Lord’s birth. As we draw near to the manger bed of our Savior from sin and death, our hearts prepare him room for his everlasting love.

First Sunday of Advent - November 29 - PONDER (Psalm 48:9)

Second Sunday of Advent - December 6 - PRAY (Psalm 69:13)

Third Sunday of Advent - December 13 - PRAISE (Psalm 30:4)

Fourth Sunday of Advent - December 20 - PROCLAIM (Psalm 145:6)
