March in Review


THE REVOLUTION IS HERE!!!  God is doing a NEW THANG!!!  And it is GLORIOUS!!! 


Here are just a few Highlights from the month of March:


(1) The “Worth Dying For” Outreach on Good Friday & Easter went great!!  We saw many people saved and come back to JESUS!!  If you want to watch the performance you can watch it on the sermon player!! 


(2) We set new records in attendance in all of our services!!  And we saw over 50 first time visitors come to the church in March!!


(3) We started a young adult ministry called, “CROSSOVER” and the first night went phenomenal!!  We saw the place packed and the feedback was earth shaking!!


(4) We built a new café in the sanctuary, made the conference room look great and the new children’s room is only $3,000 from the goal of $10,000!! 


(5) We developed a new sermon player that is an all in one player and can do more than any player you have ever seen!!!  To check it out, just click here


Thank you for all your prayers and support!!  Let us win 100,000 souls for Jesus and start Metro Praises all over the city and world!!!  The time is NOW!!


1 Corinthians 2:9,


“However, as it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him"



April – THE ONE – Win A Soul Month


We are going to start our spring/summer outreach schedule this month.  We will be meeting every Saturday at 12pm and going out to win souls.  I have interrupted the Matthew Sermon Series to do “The One”, which will be messages on soul winning so that all of Metro will be able to fulfill the great commission. 


Come on by Sunday to hear the messages and join us on Saturdays to not only be a hearer of the Word, but also a DOER!!
