At Metro Church I feel at home. Truth is spoken and honesty resonates whenever I enter this place of worship. It’s not about the building, or the people, or me, but it’s entirely about Jesus, and that reins supreme. Since the beginning of the Metro, growth has been evident in our leadership as well as in me personally. I grew up in church since I was eleven, and have never been challenged in my walk with Jesus to seek him and desire his will for my life. Jesus has become more real to me, and His glory has been revealed to me in many ways through the ministries of Metro, on so many levels. Jesus, Worship, Bible study, and Community have molded me over the past few years, and I give glory to God for the humble spirits and dedication of the people of Metro that invested in me, and have made Jesus famous!Ashley S.
What Metro Means To Me
My family and I started attending the Metro a little less than a year ago. Without being conscious of it at the time, we were primarily looking for a place that would be convenient for us to attend. Initially it was and we settled into the routine we had established at other churches of attending every other week or sometimes once a month. We have not remained comfortable however as my wife and I have been deeply challenged to evaluate how our lives line up with scripture and how we can participate in the Metro’s mission to make Jesus famous. I am so thankful for this challenge. Through community and an amazing sense that the people here genuinely care about us it has become our desire to serve and show that love to other people in and outside the Church.Michael A.
Following Christ isn’t always rainbows and butterflies. Jesus isn’t a genie. You don’t get three wishes–health, wealth, and a comfy, cushy life. It’s hard fighting the flesh, and it’s especially hard feeling like you’re alone in the journey of abiding with Jesus. For the past year, though, The Metro has changed what that journey looks like for me. Where I once struggled–uphill, both ways, in the knee-deep-snow–I now find encouragement and accountability from those I am in covenant relationship with. Where I once sat anonymously in a megachurch, I now sit with family who asks hard questions, expects transparency, and loves me despite me and because of Him. Where I once felt alone, I now feel like I am truly part of a body–a body where I not only receive nourishment but where I am expected to give and help and strengthen. I adore community. at The Metro.Liz K.
