September 23, 2023


Welcome to Berea Temple this Sabbath In-Person, Zoom, and YouTube for another Sabbath Day. God has blessed us to see the end of another week and today our minds should be giving God the Praise. As the Holy Spirit fills each one of us with God’s presence, let each of us stay faithful to our Savior.


Our Theme for 2023 is: Firm Foundation With Christ The Cornerstone. The preaching topic for SEPTEMBER is Ninth Firm Foundation-“The Status of the Writings of Ellen White/Spirit Of Prophecy”.  As we work towards Evangelism, let each one of us work to get some souls in the church for Evangelism.


WEARING MASKS are OPTIONAL at Berea Temple Church. No more Registration at this time. Temperature check may still be required. The air purifiers will continue to be on. If there is a spike in COVID, then we will go back to what we are doing now. Thanks to all for your commitment and faithfulness. If you have any concerns, please let the Pastor know.


  • Tithes and Offerings, many of us are faithful in Tithes, but our Offering is lacking. Please continue to be faithful in your tithes first, then your offering, which will be Combined Budget, where the needs of our church repairs, and Local Obligations are supported by each one of us. We asked that we work toward 5% or half of what we give in Tithes be in Combined Budget. Example: If Tithes is $1000.00, at least for Combined Budget is $500.00, which totals to $1500.00. Any other ministry is Extra Giving, not taking away from our Combined Budget.
  • The Church Board voted that we support the Church Building Fund Offering with extra giving. Do Not Take Away from Tithes and Offering. We are working towards replacing 6 Air Conditioner Units-that cost over $67,000, and getting a Church Sign that cost $23,000. We will do the Air Conditioners first, then later purchase the Church Sign. You can name where you want your funds to go by marking your envelope Air Conditioners or Church Sign. Thanks for supporting these two projects.
