2013 Highlights

Dear Metro family, 

Our church looks a lot different than it did 10 years ago when we met in the living room of our home on Cherry Ridge Circle. The heart of Metro has always endeavored to make much of Jesus in worship, the word, and the world. For those who have already invested over the years in God’s kingdom work at Metro, thank you! Your gifts and efforts have proven more fruitful than any of us could have ever envisioned.

What you will find in this short report are more reflections on what the Lord has been doing in and through our church, and where we believe the Lord is leading us in 2014. I am overjoyed to be a part of His work here at Metro. I can truly say there is nothing I would rather be doing than preaching the word and serving alongside you on mission.

May the Lord richly bless you,
astor Richard

This was truly a fruitful year! All of this was only possible by God’s grace – and so much of that grace was expressed in the form of your benevolent financial contributions. To all of you who supported the Lord’s mission here at Metro, thank you. None of this could have happened without your generosity and worship through giving.

In order to meet the financial challenges of 2014, we urge you to pray fervently. We also invite you to partner with Metro and give generously as we endeavor to "live on mission." Help us build a legacy of faithfulness and equip the next generation!
