How Do I Meet People?
Evangel Temple is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our exciting church community.
Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at Evangel Temple.

Sunday School

Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. For that reason, Evangel Temple has many classes for all ages which meet Sundays at 9:30 a.m.

Children’s Ministry

Each Sunday morning, children get to participate in their own classes. Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn. Each of the class teachers is carefully screened and thoroughly trained in children’s instruction. The children’s ministry of Evangel Temple is called
etKIDS. They have their own service in the new Children’s Center Sundays at 10:30 a.m.  The children have classes Wednesday nights at 7 p.m. called Missionettes and Royal Rangers.  etKIDS has their own facebook page!  Visit it here!
ET Youth Ministry
Our youth group is for junior and senior high students, meeting Wednesday nights at 7 p.m. in Evangel Temple’s old sanctuary.  The group is led by Pastor Gene Riggins and his great team of youth leaders.  Our Youth Worship Team is anointed and talented.   To learn more about our youth ministry, visit their

facebook page.


Sprouts – Nursery Ministry  


At Evangel Temple Sprouts Nursery Ministry, we strive to plant seeds through stories, learning activities and praise & worship.
Sprouts Nursery opens 15-20 minutes prior to each service.  The nursery is for infants and children up to 3 years of age.  For more information, and to receive the latest news on this ministry, please visit their facebook page
