life groups fall series

September 20th - November 21st

The foundation of Metro is built on these small groups that meet to share in a study of the bible and how it applies to our daily lives, developing a sense of community, intimacy and accountability. We believe that discipleship happens through relationships in community and that a commitment beyond Sundays is critical to staying connected.

Please plan to attend one of these groups that meet throughout the week.

Please join us for a special Easter celebration at Temescal Gateway Park again this year!

Surrounded by the beauty of God's creation, deep in the canyon under the Sycamore trees, we will enjoy a potluck brunch followed by a time of music and the message of the Resurrection.

After the service, we'll have an Easter egg hunt for the kids!

Whether you are simply curious about faith, or you are a longtime follower of Christ, we would love to have you join us! Invite a friend, co-worker or neighbor.

good friday service & baptism

FRIDAY, April 3, 2014 at 3pm - Santa Monica Beach (on the sand just north of the parking lot connected to the north side of Santa Monica Pier)

We had another great time at our annual Good Friday Service & Baptism at the beach in Santa Monica! This year we met  at the same location as last year - on the sand just north of the parking lot connected to the north side of the Santa Monica Pier.

As always, it was easy to find because of the large wooden cross that we put in the sand.

The service featured worship, a teaching by Pastor Steve, communion and a baptism in the ocean.

family church service now at 11am!

Beginning Sunday, February 1st our Family Church Service will begin at 11am, instead of 9:30am.!

In this "family" service kids are integrated with their parents and other adults in a family environment where the kids are part of our story. 

After some kid-friendly worship at 11am (downstairs at ROC Santa Monica) the kids go upstairs to the 3rd floor room on the rooftop for a kid-friendly, object-lesson type teaching with the Children’s Ministry teachers/assistants.

Having worked closely with Pastor Steve for the past year Rob Terrell will now lead this service as the main teacher!

Note: Parents please try to be on time (right at 11am) as the first few worship songs downstairs will be specifically for the kids before they are dismissed to go upstairs. Thanks!

the power of love

We tend to define the Power of God by the amazing visible and experiential miracles He performs. Obviously, every time God moves in power it is an awesome thing! However, there is a much more subtle way God moves that we must be careful not to miss - that is, through the power of His love.
