Metro East Ministry Family,

Sunday was an amazing time of worship with all of you, my spiritual family. We had blue jean Sunday and Pot Luck…… Tom & Danny were amazing getting those burgers & hot dogs done for everyone. Please say thanks when you see them. There was plenty of food, so many incredible men & women to be with and there's nothing like having a spiritual family to celebrate life with. I'm looking forward to continuing to BUILD family in our ministry together.


Ray Vidrio's Baptism

I pray you have a brick we handed out this past Sun. If not, please pick one up this upcoming Sunday service as we are asking everyone to decorate it, put your name on it & pray to God for how you are going to help BUILD our church.

Ephesians 4:16;

From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and "BUILDs" itself up in love, as each part does it's work".
