New to Reid Temple?

Under the direction of the Holy Spirit, and through the visionary leadership of our Senior Pastor, Reverand Dr. Lee P. Washington, Reid Temple A.M.E. Church is a Dynamic Christian Ministry!


Dress according to your own tastes and means—from jeans and t-shirts to suits and dresses. Our hope is that you dress comfortably so that you are open and receptive to all of the blessings that God has in store for you at Reid Temple.


Reid Temple offers eight (8) Sunday worship services, Glenn Dale at 7:15am, 9:30am, 11:15am and Sunday Night Live at 6:00pm; North at 8:15am, 10:15am, and 12:00 noon; DC Campus at 10:00am.  Because each service usually draws several hundred members and visitors, we recommend arriving at least 15 minutes before service starts so that you can be seated before service starts.  KidsStyle Worship is available at the North Campus, 1st and 2nd Sundays at 8:15 am and 10:15 am (ages K- 5th Grade). Teen Church service is available at the Glenn Dale Campus and is held every 1st and 3rd Sunday at 10:30am (Grades 6-12). Nursery services are available for infants up to 4 years of age.  Bible Study is held every Tuesday at the North Campus at 7:00 PM and every Wednesday at the Glenn Dale Campus at 7:00pm.  Teen Bible Study is held every Tuesday at 7:00 PM at the North Campus and every Wednesday at the Glenn Dale campus at 7:00pm (Grades 6 - 12).  KidsStyle Bible Study is Tuesdays at the North Campus at 7:00 pm (ages K- 5th Grade).


When you arrive for Sunday services, you can park your car in the parking area around the building or in the satellite lot across the street, but the earlier you arrive, the closer you can get.. Members of the Parking and Traffic Team will assist you with parking and crossing the street. Special, close-in parking spaces are reserved for first-time visitors.

You will be met at the front door by our Greeters, who will welcome you with a smile and a copy of the church bulletin (Note: bulletins are given out on first Sundays only; however, if you are a visitor, you will receive one in your Welcome Packet). They can also answer any questions you might have about Reid Temple. You can get additional information at the Welcome Desk or in designated areas where flyers and announcements are located. 

You will enter the sanctuary through one of several doors, each of which is tended by an Usher. Once inside, you may sit wherever you like. If you need assistance finding a seat or have any special seating needs, please ask an Usher for help. He or she will be happy to assist you. 

Once you are seated, please read your bulletin or watch the big-screen monitors in the sanctuary to learn more about the order of service and upcoming events at the church.


Our services typically begin with the Proclamation of Faith, followed by the Call to Worship. This is answered by the Invocation and praise music selections from one or more of our several choirs. Next, lessons and readings from the Old and New Testaments and prayer responses are shared by the clergy and the congregation. The collection of tithes and other offerings precedes the sermon. Services conclude with the invitation to worship and the Benediction—and, of course, plenty of music, dance, and songs of praise. 

Holy Communion services are held on first Sundays. Baptisms take place on every third Sunday of the month at the North campus (need to insert Glenn Dale campus baptism time). 


If you are a visitor or new to Reid Temple, you will be asked to stand at some point in the service so that you can be acknowledged and welcomed by the congregation. While you are standing, a Greeter will come over to you and present you with a packet of information about the church to take home with you.

If you’ve been searching, praying, and hoping for a place to belong, we say:
“Welcome to Reid Temple, where the Spirit of the Lord is in control!”
