Pastoral Greetings

To God be the glory, from whom all blessings flow.

It is my most humble prayer that each member and family of Emanuel Temple Church would be blessed of the Lord.  It gives me the greatest pleasure to greet you all once again and to commend you for your faithfulness to God and the church.  For as you know, if you are faithful to God, He will be faithful to you. So do all in your power to please the Lord, and keep in mind, if you’re good and obedient unto God, you’ll eat the good of the land.  Let’s be faithful to God in attendance of the Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday night services and to the auxiliary of your choice.

Bishop Oscar L. Meadows

Senior Pastor

If you don't save anything else, save your soul!
