Put Your Name in Metropolitan’s Time Capsule

Posted on: June 30th, 2011 by admin

Dear Metropolitan Member:

Phase 1 of the Metropolitan A.M.E. Church Restoration is being completed and we are in the midst of planning a time of celebration and thanksgiving for this significant achievement. As part of this celebration, we will bury a time capsule which will contain items reflecting Metropolitan Church’s current history and the legacy of our membership. These items will give future generations descriptions of our current congregation and church ministries.

Metropolitan’s time capsule will include a list of the church’s current members, their favorite scriptures, and place of birth. To be included in this effort, please submit the information requested below. If you have any questions please contact Gwendolyn Kimbrough (301.654.2616) or Carolyn McClain (202.667.8375).

Sermon Notes: Microphone Check!

Posted on: June 28th, 2011 by admin

Every Sunday morning, before the worship service starts, Brother Terry Johnson and his team perform a “microphone or mike-check”. It happens well before the service starts. Most of you don’t see it because you arrive well AFTER the service starts. The microphone check is a ministry in and of itself, because the microphones are the method through which the anointed word of God’s is delivered, through the choir, the testimonies, the preacher.

Transition to Casual Attire This Sunday

Posted on: June 15th, 2011 by admin

“Jesus is all the world to me…I go to Him for blessings, and He gives them o’er and o’er.
He sends the sunshine and the rain; He sends the harvest’s golden grain.-Sunshine and rain, harvest of grain—
He’s my Friend”.

The official beginning of summer is June 21 and recent temperatures have been a testament to this fact. We thank God for the blessing of seeing and living through another season. In spite of the summer temperatures and high humidity, we will *continue to praise God in spirit and in truth because he is worthy.*

In recognition thereof, we will transition into our casual summer dress attire for the summer months for our worship service beginning this Sunday. We would ask that you please remain mindful, as you always are, of the fact that you are coming to God’s house of worship and to balance summer comfort with dress discretion.
