Metropolitan Baptist has joined with Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan’s Purse, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind. Operation Christmas Child has delivered gift-filled shoeboxes to more than 100 million children in more than 100 countries. For many of these children, the gift-filled shoebox is the first gift they have ever received. Along with the gifts in the shoebox, the children receive the opportunity to participate in “The Greatest Journey,” the discipleship program of Operation Christmas Child. These 12 lessons introduce the children to salvation through faith in Jesus Christ and encourage them to grow as faithful followers.

“Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.” Proverbs 27:17 ESV
A man, instead of studying alone, may reach a better understanding of God’s Word in a group of men reading and studying together. There are benefits and advantages in conversation. Wise and profitable discussion will sharpen a man’s wits and add to his store of knowledge.
All men are invited and encouraged to attend. Please contact the church office at 718.236.1197 for the meeting address. Know More...
