Church Gatherings at Metro East

Twice a month, you will have the opportunity to safely gather in-person with our local church family. At Metro East, this will look like us gathering outdoors at 4:15 p.m. every other week starting on August 16. These meetings will last 45 minutes and will include singing, prayer, and communion once a month. We will still encourage social distancing and will require masks for those 9 years old and up. If you desire to continue to have fellowship afterward, pack a picnic and spend some time with your church community.


Join a Group

Need support? Looking to get involved? Maybe, during this extended period of social distancing, you're looking for a community to connect with for accountability and friendship. Or, maybe you want to dive into a new book or Bible study and read-along with others. Explore our virtual groups and find your people!

Upcoming Events

Journey Kids

We are a community serving together to cultivate the gospel in the next generation. During this time, our Journey Kids ministry looks a little different – each Sunday, we premiere our preschool lesson at 8 and our elementary lesson at 8:30 a.m. Visit the Journey Kids page for updates, resources, to sign up for our newsletter, and more!


Journey Students

Journey Students is a place for your child to belong. Our mission is to partner with your family to help your students love God more today than they did yesterday, be discipled in the love and truth of Jesus, and to trust Jesus with their today, tomorrow, and eternity. Visit the Journey Students page for updates, current studies, and more.
