Florida Phase One Guidelines Change Our Worship Service
Now that meeting at church is permitted, we are returning to one service at 11:00 A.M. on Sunday, May 10. We will follow safety guidelines of 25% occupancy levels. Since our Sanctuary seats 350 people, that means we can accommodate 87 people and still maintain proper “Social Distancing.” Most families will have their own pew and every other pew will be closed allowing ample space for safety. See the Message from Pastor page for more specifics.
Since it is important to be flexible at this time, we appreciate your understanding, and we will try to keep this line of communication open. Stay safe and keep praying for God’s guidance and protection during this difficult time.
Church Patio Project
Our focus this year is to raise funds to repair and rebuild the patio area on the north side of the Sanctuary. We plan to replace the tree damaged wall and railing, the concrete walk area and the benches. We want to turn it into a beautiful, memory garden for all to enjoy. There is a display in the Narthex showing our intentions and expectations of cost. Please, make donations to help with the completion of this project.
Spring Bake Sale–Postponed for Now
The Women’s Group is planning a Spring Bake Sale on Saturday, April 11, in the Parish Hall from 10:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. It will be open to the entire community, so tell your friends! This will be the perfect time to purchase wonderful baked-goods for your Easter celebration. All funds will go toward the Church Patio Project!
New Members Always Welcome
We invite people to join us by Profession of Faith, Baptism or transfer from another church. We are a member of the International Council of Community Churches and welcome people of all faiths and cultural experiences. If you are looking for a new church home, we will gladly welcome you to our family of faith here at Temple Terrace Community Church.
Ongoing–Postponed for Now
Bring in non-perishable items for the Temple Terrace Food Pantry. Peanut butter and cereals especially needed. Place in baskets in the narthex.
Bring in items for the We Care Bags. We especially need peanut butter and/or cheese crackers, fruit cups, Vienna sausage, fruit snacks, bottled water, beef jerky, breakfast and/or granola bars, juice boxes, toothbrushes and mini toothpaste, small hand sanitizers, washcloths, and small insect repellents. These items are put in plastic bags with Bible verses and prayers for giving to the homeless on our community street corners. This is an on-going service project of our Women’s Group. Please help us continue this ministry.
