Aug. 25 – Worship Outside the Box

You will be glad you came to Temple Terrace Presbyterian Church on Sunday, August 25th. You will also want to bring a friend with you.

We will offer 16 diverse worship options for you to choose to experience, all squeezed between a delicious Breakfast and a scrumptious Ice Cream Social.

Wear comfortable clothes so you can move and enjoy the Lord!

8:30 AM – Rally Day Breakfast

Waffles with butter and syrup

Come early for a breakfast hosted by our Fellowship Committee. They will kick off Rally Day with Breakfast featuring a Waffle Station for made to order waffles, a Breakfast Casserole, fruit salad, and Breakfast Sausage.

9:30 AM – Worship Outside the Box

Worship elements coming out of a box

“Ditch the outdated sermon, multisensory messages are engaging,”urged a recent article in Presbyterians Today. While this article merely offered a technique to incorporate visuals for congregations without a large screen, this Sunday we will be truly multisensory.

You will not be able to try all of the possibilities planned, even when we expand worship to 90 minutes. New opportunities will begin every few minutes. By the end of worship we hope you will: (1) have tried something new, (2) signed up to experience at least one of the opportunities again, and (3) have something to show and tell to the rest of the congregation during the talent show.

Potential worship opportunities may include (Times, Titles, Leaders, and Locations are subject to change):
