For many, the Sunday Morning Service in the Temple is the highlight of the Ocean Park week. Glorious music provided by the Temple Choir, the Bell Choir and the Temple Brass, great congregational singing, and thoughtful, inspiring sermons by guest preachers from a variety of denominations combine to make these services uniquely moving events. This summer's series begins on Sunday, June 26 at 10:30 am and continues each Sunday through September 4. Parents are invited to make use of the Nursery for pre-school children during the Temple worship service each Sunday, from 10:15 to 11:45 am. The Nursery is located in Jordan Hall, where experienced adult supervision is provided.
Sunday School is provided for children in kindergarten through grade six in Jordan Hall each Sunday from 10:15 to 11:45 am. Children are also welcomed to sit with their families during Temple worship services. For them, Temple Tote Bags are provided and may be obtained at the side entrance. In the Totes are quiet activities with a Christian theme. Nursery is available. Facilitated by staff members from Oceanwood.
Morning Watch discussions are offered are also offered selectively through the summer season. More info here > >
