How do I get to Metropolitan Baptist?
What to Expect
You’ll find our worship services filled with beautiful and inspiring music. The time of worship is always followed by a clear, helpful, and challenging Bible message from our Pastor or guest speaker. This service is usually around one hour in length. Also, at 9:15 am on Sunday, there are Bible classes for all ages. These classes are smaller group settings where you are invited to meet people and hear a teaching lesson more directly applicable to your life-stage. The best way to get to know people at Metropolitan is to visit one of these Bible classes.
Where do I take my children?
Starting with nurseries, there is something special for every age child. At every service there are safe, clean nurseries for children three years old and under. There are Bible-centered classes for children ages four through 5th grade that are fun, friendly, and engaging. These classes are staffed with trained, friendly, and well-qualified teachers and helpers who will make church exciting and memorable for your child.
We would be honored to help you find the appropriate nurseries, classes, and services for every person in your family. Our greeters and ushers are located around by the entrances and will gladly help direct and even escort you to the right place.
What about my teens?
Our student ministries consist of our junior high and high school age kids. The teens attend their class at 9:15 am on Sundays and then the worship service with the adults.
How Should I Dress?
There is not a dress code at Metropolitan for members or guests. Some of our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress while others dress more casually; however, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here at MBC!
Am I Expected to Participate in the Offering?
No. We don’t invite you to church for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God’s Word, and a place where you can grow in God’s grace. Please don’t feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.
Are Nurseries Provided
Loving nursery workers provide a clean and safe environment so parents can have peace of mind while they attend the adult Bible classes or one of the worship services. MBC has implemented a number of safety features and security measures to ensure that your child will have a safe, enjoyable experience while you attend our services. Volunteers who work with children are carefully interviewed, screened, and trained.
