Written by Metro Blogger.

Summer is winding down:  school supplies are on sale, summer camps are closing, the weather is hot, hot, hot!  This can only mean one thing - September is around the corner!  And we are pleased to invite you to a special series of sermons Pastor Kinlock will preach:  Daniel - Unsealing the Prophecies.  If you've never truly understood the book of Daniel, or need a refresher - this series is for you!  We encourage you to bring a friend or family member to church with you so they too can benefit from the series.

On September 7, as we kick off the series, we have our International Day celebration.  The morning services will have an international flair, and we host a "spicy" concert at 5:30 p.m. that afternoon.  Join us for the Metro Marketplace on Sunday, September 8 at 11:00 a.m.  Enjoy a mouth-watering variety of international delicacies for sale, as well as fun activities for the entire family.

On September 21, Stellar Award winner Maurette Brown Clark will be with us for the 11:45 a.m. service as our guest psalmist.  You don't want to miss this powerful worship experience!
