Return to me, and I will return to you, says the Lord of hosts.”
 
Mal. 3:6
 Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ!Greetings to each of you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ! This double issue of Temple Tidings (August/September) has a lot of information to help you prepare forthe beginning of a new school year in Church!On
September 11
th
, we will celebrate
Homecoming Sunday
. This is an opportunity for all members, friends and former members to return to Tremont Temple and cele-
brate the unity that we have in Christ! The Bible very often speaks of “returning”.Listen to some of the Scripture verses: “We will return with you to your peo-ple.” (Ruth 1:10) “Return, every man to his home…” (I Kings 12:24) “If you return inpeace.” (I Kings 22:28) “Return, O my soul, to your rest.” (Psalm 116:7) “Come, let usreturn to the Lord.” (Hosea 6:1). It is good to return to a place where we have expe-rienced God’s love, and friendship of its people.
 The ship of Tremont Temple Baptist Church has gone through rough waters andstormy seas. But, the good news is that through it all, God has blessed us and weare now in calm and peaceful waters. Come, celebrate with us what God is doing inour midst!
After Church
on
Homecoming Sunday
, there will be an
InternationalBanquet
. Members from around the world will bring specialties from their homecountries.There will be tables set up in Chipman Hall with foods from around the world. Eve-ryone is encouraged to bring a dish from whatever country. Please let your Deaconor the Church Office know what you will be bringing. Thanks!
Make a date and plan to attend….and bring a friend!
Call former members and letthem know that we miss them and want everyone to return for this wonderful timeof celebration and joy!There are many things for which we are grateful this summer:
1.
 
Baptismal and New Members Class
: The Lord is growing his flock, one by one! Weare pleased that on
Sunday, September 11
th
 
, there will be a baptism of six new people who have indicated their faith in the Lord, Jesus Christ and have expressed
their desire to follow Him in baptism. Isn’t it wonderful that God is adding to our
numbers every Sunday!?
2.
Wednesday Prayer Meeting
 
: The Wednesday evening fellowship hour has turned
into a feast of God’s blessings upon us! This summer we have had attendance at
Prayer Meetings of about forty. Also, an equal number come to our fellowship timebeforehand. We are grateful that Tony Murrell who is our church cook has beenproviding such excellent meals. But, the feast of prayer time is really most reward-
ing. It is a time to express concerns and also to experience God’s love in prayer.
 
The last Wednesday of every month
is a
Contemporary Service
that is led by our youth. We thank God for the growth of our students and young professionals!

3.Sunday School and Bible Study time:
“Read your Bible,pray every day and you’ll grow, grow, grow!” Sunday 
morning is a time for children and adults to dig deeper intothe Word. If we really love the Bible as we proclaim , then
shouldn’t we be studying it even more? Every Sunday,
 you have an opportunity to be involved in a Bible Study class. In a large church very often the Sunday School classbecomes the small group experience that brings you closer
to friends and the Lord. Don’t miss the opportunity to grow 
in faith!
Sunday, September 4th
, is an
All Class quarterlygathering
in
Myers Hall, 6th floor, 9:30 am
, preceeded by a continental breakfast. Janice Lotz will be leading thelesson at that time.
 
Dear Sisters and Brothers of Tremont Temple,We have had an exciting summer, being able to welcomeChelsa Bailey back from Louisiana and being blessed with thebeautiful singing of our Praise Band Ensemble of Chelsa, Saraand Clevette. The Lord has used this group in a mighty way to offer rich praises to our God and King. The Contemporary Music Worship Team has also done a great job on the last Wednesday Night Prayer and Bible Study time each month inLorimer Hall. The Gospel Choir sang on the steps of Tremont Temple dur-ing July and will also do so in August, ministering to touristsand other passersby. The Filipino Ensemble and ChancelChoir have both been off for the summer months, but willstart again in September. We have also been blessed to haveClara Kebabian play violin for us, as well as Elizabeth Englandplaying the oboe, in addition to other vocal soloists, the PraiseBand and guests.
