Encouraging All to Know and Serve God

Join us at 10am this Sunday, 420 Bullard Parkway, Temple Terrace

Joyful Worship

Our main service is held each Sunday at 10:00 AM in the Sanctuary. This service features our Choir and other special music. It also includes ‘A Children’s Sermon’ which is a special part of the service for our younger members.

An earlier service that is slightly abbreviated (no Choir or children’s message) is held at 8:15 AM from September through May 31 in the Fellowship Hall.

The Sacrament of Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month at both services.

Please note we offer a staffed Nursery and Sunday School for kids after the “Children’s Time” during the 10:00 AM worship. Bring the kids to 10:00 AM worship, then they’ll head out to the Craft Room together, with the Teacher.

Highlights of his wanderings include:

  • Bachelor of Science with majors in Physics and Natural Sciences from Muhlenberg College, Allentown, PA

During these years he was ordained as a Deacon and later as an Elder at the First Presbyterian Church of Liverpool, New York. Both of their children were born in upstate New York. Later, he briefly returned to this career designing sonar and laser systems for SAIC in Bloomfield, Indiana.

Their adult children have remained in Indiana pursuing their own careers.

Worship Service 8-25-2013 – Give Thanks Under All Circumstances

Our theme for the service today was ‘Give Thanks Under All Circumstances’.  The audio recordings uploaded include Pastor David Garnett’s super sermon of that same title.  Our church listened to his words last week, and this week’s sermon represents the next step in our journey together, seeking God’s path for each of us and as a church.

I also included the prayers of the people, which was led by Pastor David, but again, opened up to the congregation to say what they were each thankful for at our church.   It was very very moving.  I tried to boost the congregations part and I believe it got most of the people, although some were very far back in the church form where the recorder was located.  It was a lovely experience I hope that some of the presence of the Holy Spirit comes across in the recording to you as well.

Worship Service 8-18-2013

islands floating in the cloudsToday was one of the most beautiful and powerful services we have ever had at our church.  Listen to just a few of the audio tracks from August 18, 2013.  They include a hymn favorite, Kum Ba Yah, a children’s sermon by Pastor Garnett which is guaranteed to bring you to tears, a spiritual anthem played by Janice Owen and sung by our own Chris Romeo, and a powerful sermon about loss, by Pastor Garnett.

Worship Service – Sunday August 4 2013

“Do not say, “Why were the former days better than these?” For it is not from wisdom that you ask this.     Ecclesiates 7:10

art_in_worship_2012-07-22_11-38-45_420These are recordings of  a few songs, prayers, and the sermon from a regular Sunday worship service at Temple Terrace Presbyterian Church.

The highlights of the service are probably the special duet, sung by Chris Romeo, Tenor and John Short, Bass.  It is entitled “God Will Make All Things Right” by G. Nevin.

The sermon, by Pastor Garnett, focuses in on our tendency to glorify the “good old days”.  Very thought provoking.

Listen to our Praise Service from Sunday, July 28, 2013

This is the first service where we have recorded parts of it on digital. Presented here are all the music, including hymns and praise band worship songs.

Also included is a great sermon by Rev David, about the interim period for both the Israelite’s in the Dessert, as well as our church now in Temple Terrace.

Here is one of the prayers, in written form, that we did today:

God of grace, you tell us not to worry about our lives, about what we will
eat, or about what we will drink, or about what we will wear. You tell us,praise band guitar
rather, to seek first your kingdom, and then trust you to give us everything
we need. But we must confess that we do worry, that we are anxious, that
we are afraid of not having enough of everything, and that we have trouble
trusting you with our lives and with our things, and with our futures.
Rebuild our trust, so that we may live this life in your way, in faith instead
of in fear.

We pray that this audio version of the service gives you peace, hope, comfort,  and the love of God.
