“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,“plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”~Jeremiah 29:11

Dear Metropolitan Family,
Armed with worship, prayer, fasting, and study, we are trusting God to guide us through the search and election of the next man or woman of God He has already ordained to lead Metropolitan Baptist Church to her “Next.” This is an exciting time in the life of our church. Let’s move forward with hope toward the plan God has for Metropolitan.
Called Meeting of the Congregation
We are entering an exciting season as we prepare to elect the next Pastor of Metropolitan Baptist Church. Please plan to attend an in-person Called Meeting of the Metropolitan Congregation on Wednesday, September 7, 2022, at 7 PM ET at Metropolitan, to begin this process. This is a meeting invitation for Metropolitan members only.
Additionally, Metropolitan members, friends, and ministry partners across the country are encouraged to join to together for prayer and Bible study.
Praying and Fasting for Our Next
We all agree that Metropolitan’s search for her new Pastor must be a spiritual one, undergirded with prayer and fasting. Until the election of Metropolitan’s next Pastor, members and friends are asked to fast and pray every Tuesday, from 6 AM-6 PM ET. Everyone is encouraged to start each Tuesday by joining our Congregational Prayer Call at 6 AM ET. Dial In: 1-667-770-1145; Access Code—251509.
Prayer and fasting should always be accompanied by Bible study. As we turn down our plates and talk to God, we should study His Word for guidance and consider our physical health when determining our fasts. Click HERE to review “Prayer and Fasting for Our Next” guidelines.

With Hope and Blessings!
