Welcome to Berea Temple this Sabbath on Zoom, YouTube, and Facebook for another Blessed 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. Don’t forget this is a great opportunity to witness, so make the best of it with creative ways. Invite your family, friends, and co-workers to share the service on Berea Temple Zoom, YouTube, and Facebook.

•    Our Theme for 2022 is: “Moving Forward to the Promise Land/Each One Reach One”. The preaching topic for January is “Marching Orders.”

•    The Berea Temple Church Service is Virtual Only. We will use the Phone Tree to let you know when we will go back in person or on Sabbath, and notify you at least a week before. Due to the Omicron Virus and the various sicknesses on many members and families in many churches, this is what the Allegheny East Conference asked us to do.
