According to Matthew 25:35-40, God calls us to help those in need; and by loving others we also express our love for God. Right now, there are many in our community experiencing financial hardship and by supplying something as simple as food, more money can be saved for bills, more time can be spent looking for a job, and more peace can be provided. From Nov. 4 to Dec. 21, the Women's Ministry's "Caring Hands" team will be holding a food drive and invite you to donate items, such as canned goods (e.g. soup, tuna), rice, beans, noodles, pasta/sauce, mac and cheese, cookies, candies, box cakes, cereal, paper towel, toilet paper, dish soap, and you are also welcome to donate money. Drop off your items at our table in the hall on Sunday, or at the Metro office. We are truly grateful! For more info, contact Janine at email@example.com.

The meeting will take place on Sunday, November 25 at 1:30pm in the Grieco Media Center. Please RSVP with Pastor Ancy at firstname.lastname@example.org. Lunch will be provided.

Dear Metro Community,
Olya and I have been at Metro for many years and nothing means more to us in being part of a community than to serve. We have served in different ministries, but what gives us the most joy is to put our God given skills to work for His glory.
We, as photographers, have always sought to give voice to the arts in ministry, and to encourage others to pursue their passion. We also believe in the work Metro Community Church is doing, which is why we want to support Metro financially by doing what we do best.
For the very first time, we would like to donate our Family Portrait Sessions from "Tony & Olya Photography" to Metro Community Church, where 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the church.
We hope this will be a great opportunity for us to serve the families of Metro who are interested in having a family portrait session, to help build community (we love meeting new people!), while supporting the church that we love!
If you attend Metro Community Church and would like to have your family's portrait taken, we are offering a 45-minute session for $225 and a 90-minute session for $425...
To book a session or for more information, please contact us directly at email@example.com.
