Welcome to First Metropolitan Church! To ensure an easy transition, we have put together a series of sessions and request your attendance. We are blessed and honored that you’ve chosen to join our family. We know that God has sent you to us full of gifts and talents. As a new member to First Metropolitan, we have a series of required steps we ask that you follow.
The New Member Process is as follows:
Communication – Complete the New Member Intake Form (Please print legibly as this will allow you to receive all church communications).
Deacon Family Ministry – Each New Member will be assigned to a Deacon Family on the date you join with the church. You will receive a call from your assigned Deacon.
New Member’s Orientation Classes - You will also, receive a call from our New Members’ Ministry welcoming and reminding you to attend your classes that will be held three consecutive Sundays during Fulfillment hour (9:30 – 10:30). The classes will be held in the New Members YOU BELONG Room and during this time you will get to know the history and the vision of First Met, learn what your part is in fulfilling this vision, and be able to ask questions. Please make every effort to attend and be prompt.
VIP You Belong Reception - After completion of New Member’s Orientation, experience “You Belong” where you will be recognized and congratulated by our Pastors, church leadership and ministry leaders. You will also receive your personalized Certificate of Orientation. In addition, you will have the opportunity to ask questions of our leaders and meet your new Fulfillment Hour Shepherd.
Get-in-the-Game - Eager to serve? You don’t have to wait until completion of your orientation classes. Simply review the “Get-in-the-Game” Datasheet and indicate your areas of experience.
Want to be a Leader - You must complete the New Members Process which includes New Members’ Orientation and Network classes (identifying your spiritual gifts).
