Metropolitan Newsletter - Week of April 29, 2022


Grace and peace as we continue to celebrate the resurrection in this season of Easter.

We have ONE service at 9:30 am held in person, and online via Facebook live and YouTube.

Registration goes live every Monday at 10 am for the following Sunday.

During the week, Morning Meditations with Metropolitan continue at 7 am Monday through Friday, Men's Prayer Call at 7:30 am on Monday, and Noonday and Pastor’s Study at noon and 7 pm continue on Wednesday.

For our study, we are in dialogue with Dr. Judy Fentress-Williams' Holy Imagination: A Literary and Theological Introduction to the Whole Bible. Contemplate scripture and its implications as we engage in the world. You can purchase the book at Bookshop, Target, and Amazon.
