Why this emphasis? Why now?
Metanoia’s Elders believe God is leading our church into a season of spiritual renewal and vision discernment. We will begin with a three-month emphasis on spiritual renewal this fall. Spiritual renewal will help us listen to God better and respond to His leading as we seek His vision for Metanoia.
Please take advantage of all of these opportunities to renew your relationship with Jesus Christ, your commitment to His church, and your passion for the lost.
“Revive” sermon series
During this six-week sermon series (September 20 – October 25), we will lean into great periods of renewal found in the Bible along with the foundational doctrines of the Protestant Reformation to discover principles of spiritual renewal.

Community Group “Experiencing God” Bible study
“Experiencing God” is a 13-week Bible study that takes participants through essential principles and practices for cultivating a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ. Through examination of biblical and contemporary illustrations, participants will understand and apply seven realities of experiencing God.
Community Group participation in this Bible study is voluntary, but each CG must decide if they will or will not participate by Sunday, October 18 so that all groups can begin the Bible study by the week of October 25. *Suggested donation of $10/person is encouraged to help offset workbook cost.
