December 7, 2019


Here at Berea Temple Communion becomes a special part of our service as we connect with God and each other! All our sins are forgiven which brings joy of praises as we worship with the heavenly hosts! Remember there is no fellowship meal prepared today so find someone to continue enjoying the celebration of Sabbath with over a meal.

Theme for the Month

Our theme for December is “Experiencing Christ through His Birth.”


Your pastor can be reached through calling (410) 669-6350 or emailing His office hours are from 1:00 – 6:00 p.m. on Wednesdays or you can schedule an appointment through the administrative assistant.

Sacrificial Giving

Let us continue to be faithful in tithes (10%), offering (5%), and our conference goal ($100/member). Restroom Project Debt: $9,872. Church Budget Debt: $6,875. Total Debt: $16,747.

555 Goal

This initiative is to increase baptisms by 5% and increase tithe by 5% over the next 5 years. Let us be diligent in all we do for Christ!
