Galatians 6:10

So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.

There are times when you need someone to listen, to be present, to be an advocate. Although we are a large congregation, it is the Care Ministry’s mission to provide care and support to families and individuals in a personal and compassionate way and to provide an atmosphere and opportunity to sense God’s presence and provision.

Here is a brief overview of the Reid Temple Care Ministries:


“Celebrating the promises of God!” 

The members of Reid Temple’s Cancer Support Group Ministry provide Christian comfort and compassionate spiritual support to persons whose lives have been touched by cancer. They organize and coordinate cancer prevention workshops and awareness events, maintain a cancer information clearinghouse, and work with national and local health organizations to develop useful resource tools for cancer patients, survivors, caregivers, family members, and friends.

This ministry meets every 4th Thursday at 7:00pm on the Reid Temple-Glenn Dale Campus. 

Contact Sis. Shirley Harrison, Ministry Leader, 301-352-0320, ext. 422.


The members of Reid Temple’s Bereavement Ministry are called upon to prepare and serve the repast meals that the church offers to the families and friends of deceased members after each funeral service. In that role, they are expected to demonstrate both compassion and efficiency: ensuring that all foods are prepared according to the family’s wishes, maintaining a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere, and serving all guests in timely fashion. They are also responsible for clean up after each funeral banquet and for restoring the repast hall to its original order.

Reid Temple’s Pathway to Life Ministry is dedicated to empowering the members of our church and the broader community to eliminate the scourge of HIV/AIDS. Through education and service, this ministry provides a broad range of supports to people with HIV/AIDS, their caretakers, spouses, partners, children, and others—without regard to their sexual orientation, age, race, disability, or financial status. Pathway to Life ministers offer prayer and spiritual guidance to anyone infected or affected by HIV/AIDS. They also conduct HIV/AIDS prevention education activities for youth and adults; develop and distribute HIV/AIDS awareness materials; and make referrals for medical, mental health, and social services.

This ministry meets every 4th Tuesday at 7:00pm on the Reid Temple-Glenn Dale Campus. 
Contact Dr. Lenora McClain, Ministry Leader, 301-352-0320, ext. 403.

“The effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous person availeth much.” (James 5:16) 

The prayer warriors of the PUSH (Pray Until Something Happens) Prayer Ministry under gird the church and its' ministries through intercessory prayer. They seek God on behalf of not only the church but the community, the nation and the world. PUSH members also respond to requests for special prayer after every Sunday worship service and during other services as needed.

 The PUSH Ministry believes that the call to prayer emanates out of a life of commitment, servitude, and spending private time in the presence of the Lord and looks forward to those who would choose to serve in this ministry. 


The ministry meets every Saturday morning at 7:30am - 8:30am at the North Campus.
Contact the PUSH Ministry at 301-352-0320, ext. 454 or at prayerismylight@gmail.com

Caring For You

As we continue to change lives by His Spirit and fulfill God’s plan, Reid Temple holds fast to a simple yet profound passage from the Holy Bible - HAVE FAITH IN GOD.

We strive to demonstrate unshakeable faith moving our church to ever-greater heights and more meaningful involvement in the communities we serve through Almighty God.
