The Children’s Ministry

Our Children’s Ministry is The Temple’s effort to help each & every preteen and child grow personally & spiritually. One purpose is to prepare students for effective ministry to middle school, elementary and preschool students and their families. Our intent is to train the children with a foundation to lead the cause of Christ, and apply Christianity to every area of life.

Please join our effort of the Christian community to reach out to the children with the love of God as revealed to us in Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.  We offer a healthy, spiritual atmosphere that allows each child to form deep relationships with each other and eventually an eternal relationship with Jesus. The Children’s ministry will facilitate each child’s growth in his/her relationship with Jesus Christ and the knowledge of His Word and prepare each child to discover his/her uniqueness, individual gifts, and eventually God’s mission for their life.

We will prepare each child to share the love of Christ with their family, friends, neighbors, and the world through their attitudes, actions, and words.

The Children’s Ministry affords the children of The Temple an opportunity to participate in Sunday Morning Worship Service through its various ministries, such as Acolytes, Children’s Choir, and the Rossie T. Hollis of the Women’s Missionary Society. Additionally, other ministries provided our children are Sunday School and Vacation Bible School, The children also participate in special activities such as the Annual Easter Program, Black History Month, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and the Christmas Program.


The role of an Acolyte is one of distinction and service. Members light the candles on the alter and assist the pastor during the Sunday morning worship service. The Acolytes work under the direction of the Stewardess Ministry.

Children’s Choir

The Children’s Choir, under the direction of Brother Jonathan Fountain allows children ages 5 – 12 to express their praises to God through song. The choir rehearses on Saturday before the 2nd and 3rd Sunday’s and sings each Third Sunday of the month.

Sister Kimberly Capers is the Director of Children’s Ministry and is assisted by Sister Shirley Kelly.
