40 Days Of Prayer & Fasting

Metro officially launched the Beyond A Building campaign - a three-year initiative to purchase a permanent home for Metro Community Church and Metro Community Center in Englewood!

A critical part of this campaign is prayer, and so, from April 29 thru June 7, Metro is participating in 40 days of prayer and fasting - to connect us deeper with God, and position us better to the promptings of the Holy Spirit.

A 40-day prayer calendar is available at emetro.org/beyond/prayer with prayer topics and scriptures for each day. From this page, you can also sign up to fast for ONE DAY (or more).

For more info regarding our 40 Days Of Prayer & Fasting, please contact Pastor Sanetta at sanetta.ponton@emetro.org.

For more info on the Beyond A Building campaign, visit emetro.org/beyond.
