Life. Together!


Join the Underground Movement

Underground Groups are made up of up to 18 people that meet together each week in a common location outside of our Sunday worship services. At Metro, we see Underground Groups as a natural continuation of our above-ground movement (a.k.a. Sunday worship services) with a focus on going deeper with each other as a community of God - hence the term, the "Underground " Movement.

Our Mission Statement

We seek to love each other and God deeply together, and to live more fully alive in Christ. We seek to do through fellowship, biblical learning, worship, prayer, accountability and outreach. We seek to be a movement of people who will help equip each other to serve God in our unique callings, in surrender to His perfect will.


September signals a change of seasons and activities as we return from vacation to school or work. It's also time to resume rhythms of Christian community which are crucial to health. Christians in isolation get strange. Our Sunday "Above-Ground" (AG) gatherings play a significant role in our worship and teaching. But our small groups aka "Underground Groups" (UGs) play a necessary role in our learning and relationships. That's why Metro's goal is to be a church not merely with UGs, but a church of UGs. Sunday church alone will not cut it for the Christian life.

This fall, a variety of different UGs are available. For example, we have UGs for singles, marrieds, families, men, women, mixed groups and ministry groups, meeting at different times and locations. Registration begins September 17, and individual UGs start in early October. Some UGs are already filled/closed, or with limited space; so make sure you sign up early to ensure being part of an UG that fits you well. If there's no UG that fits you, and you have the availability, experience and motivation to facilitate, co-facilitate or host a new UG, please contact or
