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.

One Church, Multiple Locations

A church isn’t the building – it’s the people.
At all of our locations, there are people
excited to meet you and your family.

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, June 7th from 6:00-6:45pm. Feel free to come and pray for just a few minutes or the whole time.
