Metro! We have broken ground on the Habitat for Humanity home for a family right here in Edwardsville. Our chart below highlights several ways to get involved such as providing lunches, working alongside our team, or bringing a specialty skill to the site. Sign up yourself or your small group to be part of this opportunity to serve our community. We’ll have more details on the family and this entire project soon. Thanks for putting love into action and giving a family a home.
As a church family, we are praying for those affected by the destruction of Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Hurricane Irma in Florida. Metro is partnering with Samaritan’s Purse
and Disaster Relief/SBC to help provide shelter materials, clean water supplies, hygiene, and cooking kits. If you have ever been a part of giving here at Metro you are part of this relief.

Volunteering on a ministry team isn’t only an opportunity to be used by God, it also a really easy way to meet new people and make this big church feel a little bit smaller. If you would like to learn more about volunteering at Metro, please contact our Director of Ministries, Brett Barron. He would be more than happy to help you find the perfect area in which to serve – one that aligns best with your interests, abilities, and talents.
Small Groups for the fall semester have started! This is a great place where you can talk with others, ask questions, develop relationships and explore your faith all in a safe environment.
