school-supply-drive-metro-webThe Back-2-School season is well underway – kids and parents everywhere are shopping for new clothes, shoes, school supplies, lunch boxes…the list goes on.  Last year our church blessed the students and families of Ridgecrest and GE Peters Elementary Schools through the distribution of nearly 400 backpacks filled with school supplies. Let’s out-do ourselves, Metro! This year let’s reach MORE STUDENTS and give away MORE SUPPLIES than before.

weird-animals-vbs-fbKids love crazy, weird animals…the weirder the better. So we searched the globe for the most special, unique, rare, never-before-seen animals we could find to help kids discover what Jesus' one-of-a-kind love means in their lives.  God filled the world with a lot of crazy creatures...including you!  When kids feel weird, different, or even lost in a crowd - nothing compares to the extraordinary love of Jesus.  We hope to reinforce this truth in our kids' minds this week!  Register today!

taxesAs we roll into 2014, our Treasury department is streamlining the way they handle our tithe receipts.  In previous years, they would print receipts for rax purposes for everyone who made contributions to our church.  This has proven to be a waste of paper as many members never bother to pick up their receipts.  So for this year, you'll need to "opt in" to receive a receipt.  You can select to receive your receipt via email, or pick it up at church.  Indicate your choice here:  www.metrosda.org/taxreceipts.
