Have a Question?

Here's a list of questions we get often from members.  If you think there's something else we should add to the list, please contact us.

What programs do you have for my children? 

We have quite a few. There are age-appropriate Bible study classes for children on Sabbath mornings and Wednesday evenings.  We also have basketball teams, a cheerleading squad, Adventurer and Pathfinder clubs (similar to Boy and Girl Scouts), children's and youth choirs, and more.  Find out more about how your children can get involved.


Is there someone who can pray for me?

Of course!  You can call the church and ask to speak with one of our pastors, or you can complete our prayer request form.


I want to hold a meeting for my department / rehearsal / etc. at church.  What do I need to do?

Church rooms, including the Fellowship Hall, are available for meetings, choir rehearsals, and other events, on a first-come, first served bases.  However, all rooms must be reserved in order to gain access.  Please call the church office or complete a reservation form online.


I want to take Bible studies.  How can I do that?

We hold a special Bible study class for new believers - those who are just getting to know Jesus - on Sabbath mornings at 9:30 a.m.  If you stop by the church, just ask one of the ushers to point you to the New Believers class.  We also have a very interactive Bible study program on Wednesday evenings called Prep School.


I need to discuss something with one of the pastors.  How can I do that?

Call the church office and the secretary will help you set up an appointment.


Can I return my tithes and offering online?

You certainly can.  Visit our Give page.


How can I find out what events are happening at Metro?

That's easy - just visit our church calendar!  You can also sign up for our weekly email-gram on this page; it's an e-newsletter delivered to your Inbox once a week.


How can I volunteer to participate in a church service (do scripture reading, welcome, etc.)?

Our elders are in charge of scheduling church service participants.  Please see any of them and let him/her know of your willingness to serve.  You can also call the church office and they can pass your information on to the Elders Council.


How can I volunteer to serve in a ministry?

We are always looking for volunteers to support the church's programs.  First - find out what ministries we have.  Then, once you find one you're interested in, the easiest way to get involved is to let the department leader know of your interest.  You can send them an email or speak with them at church.  You may also call the church office and they can pass your information on to the appropriate department head.


Can I have my wedding ceremony at Metro?

Congratulations!  A wedding is an exciting time.  We are happy to have your ceremony at Metro, pending availability of the sanctuary.  Please call the church office to see if your date is available.


How can I make arrangements to have a funeral service held at Metro?

We sympathize with anyone who has lost a loved one.  Please call the church office and we will put you in touch with a member of our Bereavement Ministries team.


Can I have my baby dedicated at Metro even if I'm not a member?

Certainly!  Members and non-members are encouraged to have their children dedicated.  Baby dedications are usually held on the first Sabbath of the month.  Please call the church office to get a slot.  Our pastors will hold a short "getting-to-know-you" meeting with you a few days before the dedication.
