Metro Church of Christ
Worshipping at Metro
At Metro our goal is to incorporate into our community the identity, practices,
and teachings of the church as it appears in the pages of the New Testament.
We want to believe as they believed, preach as they preached, and worship as
they worshipped. We also try to avoid man-made traditions as our desire is to
worship in a way that allows no barriers between our members and our Lord
as we come together at the foot of the cross. As a result, our worship service is
Christ-centered and simple, but also personal, dynamic, and up-lifting.
• We sing a cappella (without musical instruments), using song books as well as a
paperless hymnal on our overhead screen. We also pray together, share in the
communion, read from the Bible, and receive encouragement through the
preaching of God's word.
• During communion, we remember Christ and his sacrifice for us. You are
welcome to share in the unleavened bread and grape juice. If you choose not to,
simply pass the plate down the pew to the person next to you or return it to the
• We also collect an offering during our time together, but as a guest, you are not
expected to contribute. However, if you feel comfortable doing so, please fill out a
pink visitor's card (located in the back of each pew) and place it in the collection
plate or hand it to someone after worship. This way we can know you better and
know how we can serve you.
• After the sermon, during the singing of a hymn, we invite anyone who needs our
prayers or desires to be baptized into Christ to come to the front pew and share his
or her needs with one of our shepherds or with the minister.
