CHILDREN'S BIBLE STUDY (GLENN dALE)
“Train up your children in the way they should go: and when they are old, they will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)
The Children’s Midweek Bible Study Ministry aims to prepare Reid Temple’s young disciples of Christ with the tools they will need to lead future generations to their rightful inheritances. To achieve this goal, it coordinates an ongoing series of themed, age-appropriate Bible lessons that introduce children in grades pre-K–8 to important Biblical concepts such as salvation and the process of sanctification through Jesus Christ. Through songs, arts and crafts, dance, video presentations, role-playing exercises, learning stations, and other structured activities, the ministry’s teachers and facilitators show young people how to apply Biblical principles to their daily lives and how to live a lifestyle that is pleasing to Christ. Classes are held every Wednesday at 7:00pm on the Reid Temple-Glenn Dale Campus.

MEMBERSHIP TO DISCIPLESHIP
The goal of Membership to Discipleship moves the membership through a spiritual development program designed to challenge each member to self-assess their spiritual relationship with Christ and to grow from their current level with the goal of becoming a disciple. Reid Temple defines spiritual growth as the process of transitioning from membership to fellowship to stewardship to discipleship. These four stages are outlined in the Membership to Discipleship Program. Click here for more details.
The signature Reid Temple Eight-Step Discipleship Development Program (Boot Camp) was developed and introduced by Rev. Dr. Lee P. Washington in 2004. This is a certificate program for personal self-assessment of spiritual growth as an effective Christian disciple and steward. The eight steps outline the process that starts at the time you join the church through New Members Orientation, Bible Study, the Andrew Plan, ministry involvement, evangelism, and ministry leadership. Each step has specific expectations and actions.
