“One Church in Three Locations”
Reid Temple is a growing community of faith with three campuses in Glenn Dale and Silver Spring, Maryland, and our newest location which worships at the Howard Theater in Washington, DC, and a combined membership of well over 17,000 persons. The church hosts over 80 innovative ministries designed to combat or provide comfort from the many challenging personal issues facing God’s people. They include our men’s, women’s, singles, seniors, youth, marriage enrichment, HIV/AIDS, wellness, anger management counseling, financial empowerment, prayer, prison, street witnessing, sports, fine arts, liturgical dance, Christian education, tutorial services, and college outreach ministries.
Each Reid Temple location has its own unique features based on the diversity of its members, the kind of worship environments they strive to create, and their unique visions from God. What is identical in both locations is a shared dedication to the cause of Christ, a warm family feeling, the extension of love and grace to persons from all walks of life, and an unshakable commitment to the unadulterated Gospel of Jesus Christ. Both campuses offer a number of weekly Bible study classes and mid-week services in addition to Sunday services. An abundance of other church activities serve the spiritual, physical, educational, and emotional needs of all age groups, from children to senior citizens.
