First Time Visitors
To each and every one of our ‘First-Time’ Visitors, Welcome to Christ Temple Apostolic Church. We hope that you will have an opportunity to worship with us in the near future. We’re aware of the fact that it can be a bit daunting to visit a church for the first time, so we’ve created this page to give you some helpful information about what to expect. If you have additional questions, feel free to give us a call at (651) 628-9090.
The parking lot entrance is located along Hamline Ave N. Wheelchair accessible parking and a ramp is available on the South Side Entrance. Please, stop at our Visitor’s station to receive a Welcome Packet. The Greeters can direct you to the sanctuary or other class room locations. Our attendees dress in a variety of styles, so whether you are dressed casually or in your “Sunday’s Best” you will feel at home. Our services start promptly.
Children’s church is available during our 11:00 am worship service. Children’s church starts just before the Morning Message. Children’s church staff will lead the children to the Lower Sanctuary for an engaging service and child appropriate message.
Christ Temple Apostolic Church is a loving and welcoming church. As you enter the building, Ushers and Greeters will be on hand to assist you. In addition, you’ll find friendly, helpful people at the ‘Visitor Station’ in the main lobby. Feel free to find a seat in the main sanctuary. Please be mindful of seats or areas reserved for those who have physical limitations. The front row on the right is reserved for those receiving interpreting services.
After an opening prayer, our Worship Team leads the congregation in worship. Visitors are free to sing along with us or simply observe. Typically, the sermon is presented by our senior Pastor Jeffery Smith. We are blessed with a variety of other ministers and our Pastor Emeritus, Bishop Charles Foye, who preaches on the 5th Sundays.
Following the service, Pastor Smith is usually available to greet visitors at the Visitor's Reception Center in the main lobby. Children are to be picked up from Children’s church. We sincerely hope you enjoy your visit to Christ Temple Apostolic Church!
