How Should I Dress For Sunday Worship Services?
Dress according to your own tastes and means—from jeans and t-shirts to suits and dresses. Our hope is that you dress comfortably so that you are open and receptive to all of the blessings that God has in store for you at Reid Temple North.
WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE FOR SUNDAY SERVICES?
Reid Temple North offers three Sunday worship services, 8:00am, 10:00am and 12:00pm. Because each service draws several hundred members and visitors, we recommend arriving at least 10 minutes before service starts so that you can be seated before service begins. If you are a first time guest please look for the first time guest parking spaces located in front of the main entrance.
WHAT ABOUT MY CHILD?
In addition to the three services above, the North Campus also offers services for your students. Every Sunday during every each service we have Eleven 22 Nursery for students 9 months to Pre-K. Every 1st and 2nd Sunday during each service we have Eleven 22 King’s Kids worship for students from K to 5th grade. Your students must be checked in for these services when you drop them off in the Kids check-in room, just ask any leader where to find this room or follow the signs.
Also on 1st and 2nd Sunday’s during the 10:00am service only we have “Eleven 22 Transit” which is a time for our students in 6th and 7th grade to learn more about God in their own way.
Lastly, on 1st Saturday’s of each month we have “The Remix” for students in 8th grade and up, which is their very own worship service, doors open at 7:30pm and worship begins at 8:00pm in the main sanctuary.
For more information on any of these services and also for opportunities for your student to serve with us in ministry please visit www.E22Youth.org
WHAT ABOUT SERVICE DURING THE WEEK?
At our North Campus we have weekly Bible Study taught by Rev Matthew Watley at 7:00pm for adults, there is also Kids Bible Study for students in K to 5th grade and TNT (Tuesday Night Teaching) for our Middle School and High School age students.

The Greeters can also answer any questions you might have about Reid Temple. Our friendly Welcome Desk can also provide you with any additional information you need about Reid Temple services and ministries.

The church bulletin inside the church-wide calendar will help you follow the order of service or just watch the big-screen monitors in the sanctuary.
HOW AND WHEN ARE VISITORS RECOGNIZED?
If you are a visitor or new to Reid Temple, you will be asked to stand at specific point in the service so that you can be acknowledged and welcomed by the congregation. While you are standing, a Greeter will come over to you and present you with a Visitors Welcome Packet containing information about the church to take home with you. Please complete the card inside of the packet and leave with us during the time of tithe and offering with a leader on your way out so we can keep in contact with you.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING WORSHIP SERVICES?
Our services combine strong praise and worship with dynamic preaching, providing a meaningful worship experiences for all who enter our doors. If someone in the congregation is lost, our prayer is that they are saved. If someone is weighed down and heavy burdened, our hope is they leave with the expectation that God has worked it all out for their good.
If you’ve been searching, praying, and hoping for a place to belong, we say:
“Welcome to Reid Temple, where the Spirit of the Lord is in control!”
