Service Ministries

Hospitality Ministry

First Lady Linda Jefferson, Ministry Leader

The Hospitality Ministry offers the wonderful Southern charm of a joyful greeting to everyone who walks through the doors of Metropolitan. You can always count on their warm smiles, hugs, and the abundance of information that are given out at the Hospitality suite to all of our visitors.

Visitors are invited to go to the Suite after service so that we can personally greet you.

What Do We Do?

Other members of the ministry can be seen during service collecting special prayer requests, address change information and other pertinent information necessary to assist members in communicating life changing events and activities.

Truly a group that exemplifies service, they stand as a model of kindness and efficiency for all of our ministries
