Thank you for exploring Metro's East Falls campus online!
One of the most effective ways to bring the gospel to the city is to saturate it with gospel-centered churches, sharing the "good news" in word and deed through intentional, intimate relationships and partnerships. Join us at East Falls this Sunday to explore the richness of faith, community, and partnerships in Jesus Christ!
What to Expect
We hope this guide will help prepare you for a visit to our East Falls location. On any given Sunday, each service has a presider that leads the congregation through various elements of worship. A worship team with contemporary instruments leads a time of live worship, followed by a sermon (and communion on a regular basis). Once the service ends, you'll be able to connect with our leaders and others attending the service. The 11:30 AM service will be livestreamed via Facebook and Youtube.
- Our Children's Programs
Children and Toddlers
The 11:30 AM service provides a full program for young children and toddlers.
- Our Nursery
Infants and Parents
The 11:30 AM services has a nursery available for newborns and young toddlers. This space can be locked from the inside for privacy, and will play a live feed of the service.
- Our Dress
Casual and Welcoming
The overall atmosphere is casual and open to everyone. We do not emphasize any form of dress code, but request that all participants maintain a respectful sensitivity to others, since worship is both personal and corporate in nature.
- Our Worship Style
Historical and Contemporary
Worship at Metro consists of a blend of Gospel-centric historical and contemporary forms of lyrics and melodies. Our music is intentional—to engage the whole person to hear the Word of God and respond to it.
- Our Liturgy
Experiencing Gospel Renewal
We have an online bulletin that explicitly details the order of our worship each Sunday. Each “stage” or “function” of our worship consists of various cycles of celebrating and experiencing the gospel.
- Our Preaching
Hearing God's Word
We desire to engage our congregation weekly through biblical preaching and counsel. Each Gospel “Lesson” ranges between 30-40 minutes. Our teaching is centered around the Person and Work of Jesus Christ; through it, you will learn what it means to live a transformed life, as God's Word engages our heart's deepest affections.
- Volunteers For Worship
Serving God's Kingdom
We believe that serving in a ministry or fellowship goes beyond the performance of a task in itself, but more about plugging into the “life” of the church.
