ET Kids Ministry

  • We continue in Kids Church with our current series entitled "Life’s Not Fair." Today's sermon is "Reward – As a Christian, My Greatest Reward is Jesus." The kids have earned a “cozy morning” in Kids Church, so that explains all the kids running around in their pajamas today. 

New Year - New Opportunities to Serve

  • You can have too many cooks in the kitchen, but you can NEVER have too many servants in the church! As you plan your year, please pray about how God would use you in Evangel Temple. Whether it be loving on young ones in our growing Children's and Youth Ministry, hanging out with young adults at The Barn, singing on the worship team, or greeting everyone as they walk in the door on Sunday mornings, there's a place for YOU. Contact a staff pastor or call the church office to get plugged in.
