Metropolitan Newsletter - Week of June 11, 2022
Grace and peace as we prepare to celebrate Youth Annual Day.
During the weekend, we invite you to join us in worship in the sanctuary or online on Sunday. Our Youth Annual Day worship begins on Sunday at 9:30 am livestreamed on Facebook and YouTube. New members class also resumes this Sunday at 1 pm.
During the week, we encourage your presence in Morning Meditations with Metropolitan at 7 am Monday through Friday, the Men's Prayer Call at 7:30 am on Monday, Quarterly Conference on Tuesday at 7:30pm, and Noonday and Pastor’s Study at noon and 7 pm 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. We're currently in the book of Deuteronomy. You're invited to join the study and conversation as we contemplate scripture and its implications as we engage in the world. Sessions are on Zoom and YouTube and replays are available each week. If you would like to purchase the book, you can find it at Bookshop, Target, and on Amazon.
Worship with us every Sunday on Facebook & YouTube, and on our website.
