3.    And if possible, even though we won't meet in-person this coming Sunday, please continue to worship through faithfully giving to God's work at MBC. You can give online easily athttp://metrobaptistchurch.org/givemail your donation to the church, or drop it off by the church office during the week. 

4.    WE WANT TO HELP!  This is a great time for our church to help those in need.  If you know of someone who is in need of groceries or supplies that can’t or shouldn’t be leaving their home, please let us know.  We would love to help out and deliver food and supplies to members of our church and community.  You can email their name, address, and phone number to the church (dewayne@metrobaptistchurch.org)  or call us at 615-859-1184 Ext. 110

Remember what 2 Timothy 1:7 says, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

UPDATE 1 - MARCH 12, 2020

Dear Church Family,

We are carefully and closely monitoring the situation regarding the coronavirus. Like you, we take this very seriously and want to assure you our #1 priority is the wellbeing of everyone coming on our campus. We are also closely monitoring recommendations from the CDC and local/state officials.

As of today, no cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) have been reported in the Goodlettsville area. Regardless, we are taking precautions to ensure that everyone who comes to worship is safe. In addition to continuing our current facility-cleaning procedures, we will make some adjustments to better protect those in attendance.

  • As you enter our facilities, all doors will be propped open or volunteers will open doors for you.
  • We strongly discourage handshaking and will not have a greeting time during our services. Be sure to greet everyone with a smile!
  • Hand sanitizer will be provided in the lobby. 
  • Instead of passing offering plates, ushers will be stationed to collect the offering on your way out. Just a reminder, online giving is still an option on our website.
  • If you or another member of your family isn’t feeling well, please stay home.

For those with children,

  • Our nursery and children’s areas will continue to be cleaned and sanitized before and after services.
  • Volunteers will be stationed at the check-in kiosks to check in your children.
  • As a reminder, our sick children policy will be posted in the nursery and children’s areas.

As we respond to the potential impact of this health crisis, it’s good to remind ourselves not to become captivated by fear. 2 Timothy 1:7 says, "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." Remember that God is sovereign and in control, so we do not have to live in fear. How we as believers respond in times of crisis is a direct reflection of the faith we have in our great God!

Because of Him,

Ryan Hill
