Night of Shine is an expression of Sisterhood, Metro Church’s ministry to women. Shine exists so that women at every stage of life can understand their full potential and learn to walk in their true, God-given identity. There will be powerful worship, life-changing messages and a chance to make a difference in other women’s lives through our Love in Action initiatives.

The conference is FREE and will be held at our Alexandria location on October 22nd at 6pm, and will be hosted by our Lead Pastor Nicole Dawes. Hope to see you there!
