Homecoming will be observed on Sunday, November 23 at 10:15 a.m. (one
service). This year’s theme is “Our Faith, Our Family, Our Future.”
Homecoming serves as good opportunity to invite former members, especially
persons who grew up in Metropolitan to come back home and see the great
things that are happening at Metropolitan. Please invite family, friends,
co-workers and others to join us for worship.
The preacher for Homecoming will be Rev. Etoria V. Goggins, Pastor of Mt.
Zion A.M.E. Church of Severn, MD. Rev. Goggins, a native of Nashville,

University and a Master of Divinity from the Howard University School of
Divinity. She has also studied at Wesley Theological Seminary. Currently,
