Family Baby Blessings

Recognizing that our children belong to God and following the example of Hannah in 1 Samuel 1:23-28, parents can make a public commitment to raise and train their children according to God’s Word. This commitment is during the Family Baby Blessing ceremony that is held during Family and Friends Sunday, which is on the third Sunday of every month.

Communion is a holy time of worship when the Christian church family comes together as one to celebrate Christ and what he has done for us through sacrifice. Communion, often referred to as the Last Supper or the Lord’s Supper and sometimes, the Eucharist is one of two Holy Ordinances commissioned by Christ, and practiced in our faith. It is a manifestation of His love and the supreme sacrifice given to liberate us from sin.

Metropolitan Baptist Church is a family and we mourn the loss of any of our members. We consider the term funeral outmoded because we celebrate the life of the individual who has died with a service of "Victory and Triumph".

Get In Touch With Us

At the time of death, a family member should contact the church office informing them of the name if the deceased, the funeral home handling the arrangements and the family contact person. The bereavement deacon will contact the family immediately to give them the policy of the church and help to make the necessary arrangements for the service of Victory and Triumph.

We take the joining of a man and a woman in holy matrimony very seriously. This is the joining of two families to become one on the eyesight of God. The new couple thus begins their journey as a new family.

Contact the church office to coordinate of a spirit filled wedding service.


Pre-Martial Counseling

Pastor Jefferson believes that all couples entering into marriage conducted under the auspices of Metropolitan Baptist Church receive pre-marital counseling. The wedding/marriage ministry will provide the necessary forms and work with the couples in arranging a pre-marital counseling session with the pastor.
