God's work. Our hands.

From supporting and serving hunger relief organizations, to helping foster children, to visiting homebound, to blanket drives, to helping locally and globally, to providing opportunities for meaningful worship, the many ministries are a vibrant part of Temple Lutheran Church, which help us to Know Christ and Make Christ Known through actions. Below are some of the ways in which Temple Lutheran Church tries to do God's work with our hands. Have more questions about volunteering at church? Email us at temple@templelutheran.org for more information.


Feeding Those Who Hunger

Temple Lutheran Church provides food and volunteers certain evenings throughout the year as part of the Life Center of Eastern Delaware County meal program at 63rd and Market Streets. The Life Center serves over 200 meals each evening, with help from over 40 area churches, synagogues, and temples. Click here for more information on how you can get involved.

Teaching Sunday School

Sunday School is a fun and engaging program held on most Sundays in between worship services starting at 9:45 am. Younger children learn about God through songs, prayer, Bible stories, crafts, and games, and begin to hear about the many parts in a spiritual environment. Older kids discover how to make their faith active in love through serving others and building relationships, discussing current issues and becoming empowered to apply their Biblical knowledge in practical ways. They examine how to live out the Christian faith, through acts of kindness and purposeful service. To help out, email the church office at temple@templelutheran.org.
