Pastoral Concerns for the Week of January 10th 2021

Greetings Metropolitan family and friends,

God’s light continues to shine; God’s peace is available to all of us. My prayer for each of you is that you embrace that light and peace and find rest there during these turbulent times.

Please join us Monday-Friday from 7-7:15am for “Meditations with Metropolitan.” To sign up to offer a meditation or to share your prayer requests in the coming year, email the Morning Meditations team at

Noonday and Pastor’s Study continue on Wednesday at 12 noon and 7 pm. We hope you will join us. Continue to join us on Saturdays at 11am for Café Met on Facebook and YouTube as well.

The Youth and Family Ministry needs volunteers to assist with virtual youth meetings and with administrative tasks. Please contact Rev. Brackeen or Sis. Evan Taylor at if you are willing to serve in this capacity. The YPD invites youth scripture readers to share their gifts during Sunday morning worship services. To sign up, please contact Sis Karla Bruce Choice via email at

Special thanks to Mayor Muriel Bowser and the city of Washington, DC, for a gift of $2500 to assist with security costs in light of recent unrest near the church. Rest assured that we have a solid security plan in place to ensure a proactive and reactive response.

Your giving is a wonderful expression of God’s generosity. As you know, there are three ways to give: via check mailed to Metropolitan AME Church, via credit card on the website, and via text or Cash App. To text to give, text "metro1518" to 73256; our Cash App handle is $MetropolitanAME.

Please pray for those experiencing grief and for health, strength, and healing all of those in need. In particular, we pray for Sis. Pamela Johnson in the passing of her aunt Janie Smith passed. We also ask for your prayers for Sis. Monet Phillips, the father of Sis. Evan Taylor, Deaconess Beverly Lee, Sis. Rosemarie Elliott, Sis. Janice Ferebee, Bro. Lacey Flagg, Dr. Mercedes Dickson, Rev. Aisha Karimah, Sister Ruby Joyce, Dr. Charles Curry, Deaconess Mary Burroughs, Deaconess Jeanette Spicer, and Mother Ethel Delaney Lee.

Your faithfulness continues to be a testament to our joy and resilience in these challenging times. We hope you will stay connected with us—daily for morning meditation, on Wednesdays for study, on Saturdays for Cafe MET, and on Sundays for worship.

Grace and Peace,

Bill Lamar
