Welcome to the Temple Terrace Community Church Website
We are a growing community-based, interdenominational church, located on beautiful grounds next to the golf course in Temple Terrace, Florida. We have a small, but inviting, congregation–very diverse in ages, cultures and religious experiences.
We celebrate Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and look to the Bible, Church traditions, personal spiritual experience and reason as guides to our lives. We welcome people of all faiths and cultural experiences to join us in Ecumenical Unity and Peace.
Our church is a member of the International Council of Community Churches. The Mission Statement of the ICCC includes the following:
“As people devoted to following Christ, we are committed to community, to treasuring diversity, to living our faith in service and love.“
We hope that you enjoy our site and that you will plan to visit us in person soon.
Services are every Sunday at 11:00 a.m.

A Bit of History
The Temple Terrace Community Church was founded in 1941 to provide Sunday School classes for the city’s children, so parents could avoid driving “all the way” on dirt roads to get to Tampa. The church was intended to serve the whole community, regardless of previous church affiliations or denominations and still continues in that tradition.
Today, our doors are still open for the whole community, and the church still serves Temple Terrace as a Sacred Space for weddings, baptisms and funerals. Official membership is not required to use our facilities.
