NOTE:  Online ticket donations are now closed.  Seats are still available - you can make your $7 donations at the door.  Doors open at 6:00 p.m.  The concert starts at 6:30 p.m.

They're baaaaack!  The phenomenal, dynamic DMV Youth Gospel Choir is pleased to announce their second annual summer concert:  August 6 at 6:30 p.m.  The choir has grown from last year - they now include members from 13 Seventh-day Adventist churches and two Baptist churches in the DMV area.  Their director is still the amazing Sherice Tomlin; she and the choir have worked hard to prepare another fantastic evening of music for you.

If you know a young person who loves music, bring him or her to this concert!

Yes! It’s that time again! Although students are just starting to enjoy their summer vacations, we’re already thinking about how fast the summer months fly by and how many parents will soon be scrambling to take care of the Back-to-School supply list.  For the past two years, our church has collected enough school supplies to bless students at FOUR local elementary schools: Ridgecrest, Cesar Chavez, Rosa L. Parks and GE Peters. Let’s keep our track-record going! The students (and especially their parents) have come to really look forward to this beginning of the school year blessing.

Park and Praise 2016 - Updated Location!

Written by Latey Bradford.

Park n praise 2016

For the past 3 years, Metro has collaborated with several other Seventh-day Adventist churches in the DMV to coordinate a huge outreach event in Washington, DC, called Park N’ Praise. Historically, this event has taken place in Franklin Square Park and served hundreds of people with food, clothing, medical services, prayer, and inspiration by way of a fantastic gospel concert!

This year, Park N’ Praise has taken on the cause of a disenfranchised neighborhood in Southeast DC, the Barry Farm public housing community. The residents of Barry Farm (one of the poorest neighborhoods in DC) are facing likely displacement from their homes and their community.  Recently, the D.C. legal community conducted a survey of low-income D.C. residents.  More than one-third of the survey participants considered problems related to housing to be the most serious problems they had experienced in the past 2 years, and when asked to identify the kind of help that people in their community most need, almost 40% of the survey participants said “housing.”  For these reasons, Park N’ Praise will be supporting the Berry Farm community in 2016.

We will meet at Shepherd's Parkway, 2931 Martin Luther King Ave SE, Washington DC (1/2 mile from Congress Hieghts Metro station).
