Our Ministries

Children's Ministries

Each week, we have age-appropriate Sunday School classes for children at 9:30 am. Our hope is to teach God's Word in a way that helps children understand God's great love for them. Our church also provides childcare services for children under the age of 4 years old during our worship service times. Our staff is a friendly, loving group of ladies who will provide wonderful care for young children.

Ladies in Fellowship Together (LIFT)

Every other month, the ladies of our church come together for a time of fellowship, prayer and a challenge from God's Word. Through this time of bonding, they desire to strengthen and encourage each other in the Lord.

Gap Standers

As a church, we believe in the power of intercessory prayer. The Bible teaches us that just one praying person can change the course of history if they will "stand in gap" through prayer on behalf of others, communities and nations (Ezekiel 22:30). Our church has various prayer groups and times of special prayer emphasis in which we seek the face of God. We have also developed a website, gapstanders.org, in which we hope to enlist people to pray for worldwide missions.

Project World

We are passionate about spreading the message of salvation around the world. Jesus' final command is our first priority. In Mark 16:15, Jesus said, "Go ye into all the WORLD, and preach the gospel to EVERY CREATURE." Our church is actively involved in financially and prayerfully supporting missionaries around the world. We also conduct regularly scheduled missions projects in different parts of the globe to give God's people a chance to experience the mission field firsthand. These experiences have enlarged our hearts and motivated greater service to the Lord.  

Minnesota Capital Mission

The Bible tells us to pray for those who are in authority (I Timonthy 2:1-2). During the MN Legislative session, we take time to pray with our elected leaders at the MN Capitol in St. Paul. Our desire is to see God lead our elected officials in a way that helps the spread of the gospel.

Music Ministry

Our desire at MBC is to worship the Lord with music that honors Him. We have various ensembles of musicians who sing and play instrumentals designed to prepare hearts to receive God's Word.

Mighty Men's Fellowship

On a bi-monthly basis, the men of our church come together for a time of fellowship, prayer and a challenge from God's Word. Our desire is to grow strong relationships to encourage and inspire faithfulness to the Lord.

Community Outreach Ministry

As a church, we strive to spread the message of the Gospel in Bloomington and the surrounding communities. Each week, we take time to go house to house, sharing God's message of salvation through personal witnessing and the distribution of gospel literature. We desire to share with others the message that transforms lives!

Mission Minnesota

We have a burden to reach the state of Minnesota with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are currently working on a project to spread the gospel county by county in our state.

Finding Hope Ministries

As a church, our passion is to help people discover how to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. This relationship will transform lives and prepare people for eternity. Through opportunities available via social media, we endeavor to connect people to Bible studies and resources in our region and around the world that'll show them how to have such a relationship with the Lord. For more information, check out our "Finding Hope" Facebook page. We also provide an online Bible study at findinghope.us.

Barnabas Discipleship Ministry

Many people have the desire to learn and understand the Bible, but they don’t know where to start. Our goal at Metropolitan Baptist Church is to help those who desire to become grounded, committed disciples of Christ. In the spirit of II Timothy 2:2, we offer one on one Bible studies to help cultivate spiritual growth.  In the process, wonderful friendships are developed. We’re here to support you on your spiritual journey.
