Calling all singles who can and can't sing! You're invited to come and be apart of Metro's very first Singles Choir! Come and stand before your Metro family and be seen for all that you are and all that you contribute to our church week in and week out! We hope that your presence and participation in this choir will inspire both singles and non-singles alike who have not yet committed to serving at Metro to serve. Practice will be held on Saturday, September 22 at the Metro Office. Food will also be provided. And remember, your presence is more important than how good your voice is! We need you there! To sign up or for more info, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Confirmation is an important step in the spiritual journey of a person, and starting Thursday, October 18, we are offering a 4-week confirmation class for students who:
Have been baptized as an infant/child and now want to confirm their faith
Have not been baptized, but are ready for baptism
Or, want to learn more about their faith before making a decision regarding baptism
While not required, we also recommend that parents attend these classes with their children so this important step can be journeyed together. Classes will be held from 6:30-8:30pm at the Metro office and dinner will be provided. For more info, or to register for the class, please email Pastor Ancy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hello, parents! We know that parenting is a joy, but can be also a challenge. We need God's help - we need prayer. Because of this, we will be setting up a "prayer station" for families every Sunday in the hallway across from the Media Center (where MetroKids meet). The station will be open for prayer from the conclusion of the sermon and after service each week, where someone will pray with and for you and your whole family. Keep an eye out for and follow the green Prayer Stations signs on Sunday!
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.
