Moving Closer to God, Each Other & the Disconnected.

Welcome to Metro

Since 1991, Metro has continued to grow and pursue its vision
to be a church where people want to move closer to God, each other, and the disconnected.
We believe church should be creative, relevant, and involved in the community.

Volunteer Opportunities

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.

Contact us today!

Join us for Prayer

Join us Wednesday, September 6th from 6:00-6:45 pm. Feel free to come and pray for just a few minutes or the whole time.

Small Groups

Small Groups: Small Groups for the fall semester have begun! If you were in a group last semester you’re already signed up! If you’re not in one already – Small Group is a great starting point here at Metro as they are a place where you can talk with others, ask questions, develop relationships and explore your faith all in a safe place. Don’t miss out on one of the most tangible ways you can experience God as he uses others to help you grow in your faith. If you’re not already in a group, sign up today at the Small Group table.
