At Mt Ararat Metropolitan, we have a simple hope: to see people come to know Jesus Christ and grow in their Christian faith.
Originally Mount Erie Missionary, our church was established in 1880, when a group of devout Christians formulated plans to construct a Baptist Church in Leesburg. Our present sanctuary was built in 1983 during the administration of Pastor H. P. James.
On October 29th, 2018, Darryl Franklin Reaves was called to become our 10th pastor. He stepped into pulpit on Sunday November 3rd, 2018 and was formally installed January 20th, 2019.
We are a welcoming church. Whether you've been attending church for years or haven't stepped into a sanctuary in decades, we hope you'll come and join us Sunday if you're looking for a home church.
When you come to join us for the first time, one of our greeters will be glad to help you become comfortable. During the service, you'll hear our faith expressed in the songs, prayers we offer up and spiritual message. All parts of our service are grounded in scripture.
After the service, join us punch, coffee and dainties as we mingle and fellowship. Say hello to our pastor and anyone else you see. We'd all love to hear your story and share ours with you.
No matter what your Christian background is (or isn't), we hope you'll join us on Sunday. Here at Your new Church home, you'll find people of all sizes, stripes and colors, and we welcome everyone--including you.
Sunday school starts at 9:00 a.m. and worship service at 10:30 a.m. every Sunday. Bible study is on Thursday at both 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m.
