Men's Breakfast - New Creations In Christ

January 8, 2022

8:00am – 10:00am

Guys, please join us January 8th for our first of the 2022 year Metro Men's breakfast at 8 AM in the Chapel.  It is refreshing to look to the future for God's kingdom to grow in and through us.  Eddie Needham will  lead our discussion around being new creations in Christ (2 Cor. 5:17).  We are ministers of reconciliation, ambassadors for Christ, a chosen generation, a royal priesthood.  And yet, we are still very much in need of a Savior.  How do we strive and thrive in the tension of the "Not Yet But Already?"  Come and be blessed with bodacious fixin's, lively conversation, and the Goodness of the Word.  If you have never been to a men's meeting, I challenge you to attend.  Bring your Bible and a friend.  Please contact Eddie Needham at for questions.  See you there.

January 15, 2022

10:00am – 12:00pm

Acts 2 paints a picture for us as believers of what it looks like to be a committed part of a local church.  A collective of people who follow Jesus, we’re devoted to gathering together in community, serving one another’s needs and growing in our faith through sound teaching. 

BELONG is a great way to get to know each other - and help you find your place at Metro Life Church.  

In our time together we'll cover topics like:

  • Gospel-Centered Culture: Truth - Safety - Time
  • Why Belonging Matters.
  • Who gives leadership throughout the church?
  • Tour our facility to understand how it relates to our mission.
  • A brief overview of Metro Life Church's doctrinal distinctives.
  • God-glorifying Discipleship.

Our next group will meet Saturday morning, January 15th at 10am – refreshments will be served and childcare will be provided.  

Week of Prayer and Fasting
