As we have continued to monitor the weather for the weekend as well as be in contact with local authorities, we think it best to go ahead and cancel all weekend services and activities through Monday. Many are already recommending that individuals be in place by 5p on Saturday. We will assess any further scheduling updates as needed beyond that. More than any of these det...Keep Reading

Some of the sweetest times for small groups/gatherings or families are when they can participate in the Lord’s Supper together. The Bible stresses the importance of unity in Communion, which is why taking Communion with those you do life with on a regular basis can be powerful....
We are in this together, but no one is as close to you as your spouse. Let’s cultivate our marriage so it will stand this test. Our prayer is that the marriages at Metro will bring great glory to God and be an outstanding example for our children. They are watching and learning by our example....
We must understand that our choices place us in the bounds of responsibility. If we acquire much, we will have the responsibility to care for much. If we choose to live a minimalist life, our responsibilities will be minimal. With our individual choices of “things,” we must be responsible as believers and prepared to cover their costs during guaranteed hardships. That is Proverbial wisdom....

I’m not saying don’t prepare and care for your families, but in our effort to do so let’s not neglect to bear fruit as believers. These are the times when the opportunity to point people to Jesus is almost at every turn....
God is completely in control of this globe of his. He loves us – we're his own.

And while I may not always understand the Why in my life, I do know the Who....
We not only want to help equip our children to process information informed by the promises of scripture, but we also want to provide a platform to share their thoughts, emotions, fears, concerns, indifference, apathy, etc. Ask them. Don’t assume you know their answers. Give them time to process and think out loud. Affirm that they are sharing in a safe environment....

Here are some practical ways you can be equipped to respond when most helpful, it's a "round-up of resources" so to speak. Let's begin with Prayer......
As we are preparing individually for what we pray will not happen, we are also preparing for the church as to schedules and safety precautions. We will be sending you updates along the way as to our Sunday schedule and serving those in need as the weather service determines the track.
