Metro's Arts Ministry will be hosting a "wine" and painting night from 6:30pm on Saturday, Sept. 30 at the Metro Office! Jess Gelber has volunteered her skills as an artist in hopes of raising money as a small offering for our church as well as creating a new way for people to come fellowship! Come paint with friends, with strangers, or perhaps someone special for a great date night activity ;) No painting experience is necessary - just a small $20 fee for materials. Spaces are limited, so sign up quickly! Email Doug at email@example.com more info.

It's apple-picking season and Metro's T3 (over-40's) ministry wants you and your family to join us for a memorable, church-wide event at Masker Orchards (45 Ball Road, Warwick, NY), enjoying the unforbidden fruit that keeps the doctor away. There's no entrance fee - just pay for the bag(s) of apples you take home (about $29 per bag). All ages are welcomed! There will be a sign-up sheet in the church lobby, but there's no requirement to register in order to attend. For more info, please contact Maria at email@example.com.
Please Note: Masker Orchards is huge so please make sure to park at Parking Lot 4 if you want to pick with Metro.
Summer vaca is over...but don't be sad because our small groups (aka UGs) are resuming! Fall signups continue at church this Sunday (and online now at emetro.org/underground),with groups officially kicking off in early Oct. Be sure to register early, as it's first-come first-in, and once a group's person-limit is reached, it will be closed to new registrations.
For more info on UG signups or leader orientation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Metro, please be sure drive slowly upon your arrival and departure on Sundays. We have experienced several of our Metro family driving much too fast, causing concern for people's safety. Thank you for your attention to this important matter.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
