How Can I Serve?

One of the best ways to meet people, develop relationships, and grow as a follower of Christ is to serve the local church. And it’s not just on the weekends! Serving opportunities are available seven days a week.

Whether you’re into numbers, words, technology, or people, God can use your gifts and skills to make a difference. There are several ways you can put your gifts to work at Metro Church.

 Why this is imperative:

This ministry is imperative to Metro’s success because this is one of the more visible ministries in the church: Visitor’s experiences. Without successfully conveying that we are a church that genuinely cares about people, we will lose the opportunity to share the gospel with them and have them connect on a deeper level.

The win:

Your job is successful when first and second time guests become fully engaged members at The Metro.

 

LITTLE METRO

Purpose:

At The Little Metro we provide a safe, fun, age-appropriate environment for children to learn the big picture of God’s redemptive story and his never-ending, never-giving-up, unbreakable, always-and-forever love for them. Kids will play, sing songs, snack, dance, create crafts, and have a blast!

Reports to:Little Metro Minister

A typical Sunday in the Little Metro tends to look like:

Play: Peer interaction which allows adult volunteers to get to know the kids and play with them on their level.

Worship: A fun, energetic time of singing and dancing for Jesus!

Lesson: Every week the children have a story time based on a passage of the Bible. It is our emphasis to help your child see how Jesus is represented in all of the Bible, even in the Old Testament. We use this time to teach them a basic Bible truth that they can immediately share with mom and dad on the way home.

Snack:Each week, kids have a short time to eat a snack. Please see “will my kids eat anything?” below for more information.

Craft: Most weeks, kids will create a craft that corresponds with the bible lesson. We want to help children express their creativity and imagination. Hands-on crafts provide a unique time where kids can interact and see the bible lesson from another angle- a colorful and keepsake angle!

 Toddlers in the Little Metro have a similar schedule revolved around play time, singing worship songs, dancing, and snack time.
