Service times vary, although the typical service averages 75-90 minutes. God’s presence is too important to be rushed. We understand that time is limited, so our services are organized to get the most possible out of the allotted time.
At Moore Baptist Temple, we are thrilled to have guests visiting in most every service. As soon as you walk through the doors, we believe you will find what so many people love about Moore Baptist Temple — a down-to-earth and genuinely friendly atmosphere. During the services themselves, you can expect to enjoy clear, God-honoring music and fervent, practical preaching. You might be wondering, “What should I wear when visiting Moore Baptist Temple?” While we never apologize for encouraging people to “dress their best” for church, you will find people from all walks of life and backgrounds who feel very much at home.
Sunday school is alive and well at Moore Baptist Temple. Its purpose is to provide systematic teaching of the Bible, as well as to provide opportunities for fellowship and encouragement for people in similar life stages. Sunday school is one of the best ways to get to know more people at Moore Baptist Temple.
A nursery is available at all services for children up to age 3 years and is located in our fellowship hall. Children/Teens ages 4 through 12th grade will begin in the main auditorium. After the opening service, they will be dismissed to their various classes. After Sunday School, children ages 4 through 6th grade will remain in the fellowship hall for Junior Church where they will sing, learn practical lessons from the Bible and have snacks. Teens in 7th through 12th grade will join the adults in the main auditorium for the main service. Upon your arrival, please feel free to ask questions about class locations, teachers, etc.
As you pull into our front parking lot, you may park in any available slot.
Our music is more traditional than the typical church today. In congregational singing, we primarily use a hymnal with occasional choruses added. The special music from the platform uses a mix of great new music, as well as timeless classics. We don’t use hymns because we are stuck in a rut. We still find them challenging, stirring, and more accurate in their reflection on God’s attributes. Once you sit through a song service, you’ll see why we believe that conservative music is alive and well.
We use the King James Bible. Because the Bible is such an important part of our services, as well as our primary authority, we have chosen to concentrate on one translation. The King James Bible has been a reliable anchor for English-speaking people for centuries. Most of today’s translations seem to be more a product of marketing than accuracy. We believe a timeless, proven standard can be preached and explained in a way that everyone can understand.
Our services are held weekly on Sunday morning, Sunday evening, and Wednesday evening. We frequently have special meetings. Service Times
