Pastoral Concerns for the Week of October 18, 2020

Greetings Metropolitan family and friends, Sharing this week in ministry has been a joy. We hope that you continue to stay engaged in the weeks to come. Noonday and Pastor's Study continue on Wednesday, October 21. We look forward to seeing you as we engage in Proverbs and Romans. If you have not joined us before, join us this week. We have a wonderful, meaningful time together. You'll be grateful for the fellowship and learning.

Weekday "Meditations with Metropolitan" continue this week from 7-7:15 am Monday through Friday. If you would like to offer a meditation or have prayer requests, email the Morning Meditations Team at If you miss a mediation or have not ever joined the calls, they are available on our YouTube page for your convenience.

The Youth and Family Ministry Monday Retreat Series entitled, "I will use my Voice and speak up for Justice" is being held each Monday evening at 6:30 ending on Monday, Nov 2nd. We want to invite all of our students 18 and under for some engaging discussion and activities.

In particular, please join us this Monday, Oct. 19 at 6:30 for Back to School Night. Join us to hear more about what's coming up in Youth and Families ministry, stories from our youth about using their voice, and a message from Rev. Keisha Patrick. For more information, please contact:

We are drawing closer to Election Day on Nov. 3rd and hope that you have already made your voting plan. Please make sure you family, neighbors, and friends all have a plan on how they will cast their vote. More information is on our website under Ministry Opportunities.

We continue to be grateful for your 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 be in prayer for all who have experienced loss recently and those who continue to experience grief. In particular, we lift up Sis. Deborah Scott in the passing of her mother Dorothy Maxwell and Bro. Wendell Johns in the passing of his brother Charles, the Elliot family in the passing of their cousin.

Please continue to pray for health, strength, and healing for Dr. Mercedes Dickson, Rev. Aisha Karimah, Sister Priscilla Ryder, 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
