Visible Campaign Overview
Over the next three years, we are inviting you to participate in making the love of Jesus more Visible through the ministries and facilities of TheMET Church. There are three basic categories to our campaign: what we must do, what we should do, and what we could do. Our facilities are tired and aged and desperately need an update. In our updating, we are repurposing our facilities to foster relational environments where people can connect to Jesus and to you, His church. Included in these renovations: a response area, prayer area, interior and exterior signage, lobby repurposing, and the beautification of the Worship Center. As responsible stewards of what we’ve been given, we believe we must do these things.
Please take a moment to review the information below and prayerfully commit to participating in what God is doing through this campaign.
How Is This Different Than My Tithe?
We bring our offerings to God each and every weekend. It is a mark of one who knows and is following Jesus. The “Visible” campaign is a giving initiative. We are asking for you and your family to make a contribution over and above your regular tithes and offerings over the next 3 years. This campaign’s goal is to raise $5,000,000 for capital and missional strategies that exceed our regular annual ministry budget.
We preach it, we teach it, we train it into our small group leadership, and we practice it – we are made for relationship. We are committed to do whatever it takes to make the love of Jesus visible again in our community, inviting them into a relationship with Jesus. From mission strategies to facilities – we will do anything we can to connect people to Jesus and to His church.

Christ is the visible image of the invisible God…He is also the head of the church, which is his body.
