TRUTH QUEST CLASS SCHEDULE UPDATE
As you may have seen on our church’s blog there is an update to the Truth Quest Classes – we will now offer children’s ministry for ages 1 year old through 5th grade. Parents should feel free to make use of our nursing mom’s room for their babies or the child training room for younger children as needed (both are located at the top of the ramp in our auditorium) .

CALLING ALL SERVANTS
As the ministries, function and events of the church increase we are finding the ever present need to increase our volunteer base. These opportunities are linked not only to member initiatives but also to community outreach. In order to serve these events well we need your help and participation. Examples of needs are:
GIFT CARD SUNDAY
Please drop a gift card in the offering any Sunday to be given to those in need of groceries or clothing
Please pick up around where you are seated prior to leaving the auditorium at the end of service. Your help would be appreciated
To post an article in the bulletin, please submit articles to Lisa by Monday and allow four weeks to post prior to the event date
Please let the Office know if your contact information has changed // Email addresses, mobile and home phone numbers, as well as current home addresses, new additions to the family, etc.
Support Metro every time you shop, at no cost to you // Amazon will donate a portion of sales to Metro // Shop at Smile.Amazon.com (http://smile.amazon.com/ch/59-2521307) // This is the same Amazon and prices that we are accustomed to.
