Pastoral Message

My Dear Metro West Family:

It goes without saying that these are challenging times. But in times like these we have a Savior who is our Help.

We are among the millions of people all over the world who are at risk as a result of the corona virus. However, we should not be afraid. Instead, let us adhere to the recommendations regarding social distancing and heightened hygiene. Your health and the wellbeing of your family are of utmost importance to us.

We will miss seeing each other, greeting each other, fellowshipping with each other and magnifying the Lord from the same space. This will be temporary. In the meantime, we are making it possible for you to be able to be receive the ministry of your church in the following ways.

  1. Live streamed service specifically designed for your viewing. Our live stream will be for about an hour and 15 minutes from 10:30 to 11:45.Ths can be accessed at  We will be thinking of other creative and effective ways to minister to our community as time goes by.
  2. The availability of an audio broadcast that you can receive by calling in at 10:30 to this number: 1-515-604-9300. PIN: 574522#
  3. You can utilize our online giving from our church’s secure website: You can also stop by the church office where you can utilize our secure point of sale (using your debit or credit cards) feature. You can also drop your checks off at the office. Thank you for being faithful in supporting the Lord’s cause.
  4. Our staff and volunteers will be in touch with you by phone to pray with you and to share words of encouragement as well as to listen to any concerns you may have.

We are in the midst of our end of year activities. Our annual church meeting was scheduled to take place on the 15th of this month. The pastor’s report was given and some of our members were able to vote for delegates to District assembly and for officers for the church board. Provision is made for those of you who have not yet voted to cast your vote by going to the church office between the hours of 10: a.m. and 3: p.m. We have until March 28th to get this done. Thank you for assisting us in this area.

We will continue to pray and seek the Lord for wisdom, guidance and strength as we go through these days. Let us rely on His promises and remain confident in His ability.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you think we can be of help to you and your family. We are here to serve you.
