Hello Metro Family,

We are continuing to serve our community during 2019 and we hope you'll join us as we form connections with our neighbors. Our monthly service projects generally focus on one event (soup kitchen, Metro card giveaway, grocery card giveaway, etc.) and take place after the 11:45 a.m. service.  We also have a spring and fall Beyond the Walls activity, where we have an abbreviated 11:45 a.m. service, and offer multiple service opportunities for the congregation to assist with.  In addition to our church-wide projects, our young adults, youth and children also have specific outreach activities they will participate in during the year.  And finally - each month we will continue to list our Personal Service Challenges - we ask you to choose five items from the month's list that you can do personally for people with whom you come in contact.

Below is a description of upcoming service projects, as well as the monthly personal service challenges.
