January 18, 2020


Welcome to Berea Temple, where in order for this church to grow, we must believe and live out the theme for this month, which is “All in- Commitment”.  As we praise our Lord and Savior today, may we be recommitted in this worship service. There is a fellowship after the divine service in the lower auditorium.


Thank You
