Market Place Ministry Business Seminar 10.10.15

Posted on Updated on

The Market Place Ministry Business Seminar will take place this Saturday, Oct. 10th from 9 to 1 pm.  Continental breakfast will start at 8:30 am.  This will also allow time for you to mingle and meet other like minded Christians and to discuss your business.  We will ask you to wear a name badge with just your name and a business description………………… real estate, cooking, child care, elderly care, etc., to help trigger conversations with others.

Bring business cards or even a short write up of your current business venture or idea.  Also, be prepared to give a 1 minute introduction of yourself and your business to the group.

Our Pastor has started a new series named “Agree with God for your Prosperity”.  This Sunday he started the series with his message called “Your Place of Prosperity”, Psalm 66:11-12 NIV “You brought us into the prison and laid burdens on our backs.  You let people ride over our heads; we went thru fire and water, but you bought us to a place of abundance.”  Maybe your place of abundance is starting your God Anointed business as an entrepreneur or a partner. Maybe it starts this weekend………….

If you are available to come a little early to help  with administration, please let us know. Encourage others to come, as all is welcome.  Please contact myself or anyone above if you have any questions.

Elder Daniel Johnson


New to First Met; The Table

Posted on

First Met,

Church doesn’t end just because the worship service is over. “Church” is the body of Christ seeking God’s kingdom, not just an event on Sunday morning. Prayer, service, study and fellowship are important aspects of faith that shouldn’t be restricted to the hour we sit in a pew. That’s what The Table is all about. It’s a private social network, just for our church, that enables us to connect 24/7, not just on Sunday.

The Table is our new online community at First Met; The Place Where You Belong! This is your invitation to join the online fellowship, by pulling up your chair to The Table.  IMG_1535

5. Browse ‘Groups’ and join a few. If you don’t see a group for your ministry or interest, go ahead and start one.  IMG_1537

Mission of Yahweh; Volunteer Celebration

Posted on

September 25, Elder Louis & Gloria Robinson attended the First Annual 2015 Volunteer Celebration & Dorcas Awards.  It was ” a huge success” said Tonya Frye.  She continued, “We welcomed more than 100 people last night to acknowledge those who work hard among us…our dedicated volunteers!”  missionofyahwehthanks
The events purpose was to show thanks and appreciation to the organizations that have volunteered their support to the Mission of Yahweh.  Among fundraisers, the Mission raised “more than $8,900 which will go towards our general operating support of our residents.”

The entire Mission of Yahweh team showed its gratitude for the community support, as well as the residents who benefit from the love show, teaching given, counsel provided and resources shared.  The Mission of Yahweh continues to meet the needs of women starting anew, facing the challenges of life filled with faith and determination.

First Met is grateful for the efforts and dedication of Elders Louis & Gloria Robinson whom serve as leaders and coordinators for the First Sunday Worship Service held at The Mission.

Online Giving at First Met

Posted on Updated on


We are excited to announce an important update to online giving at First Metropolitan Church.  Your generosity and financial partnership with First Metropolitan Church is immensely appreciated.  Many of you have made contributions and or have scheduled giving set up through Church By Mobile.  We are now in the process of transitioning existing givers to a giving experience called “Pushpay” that allows for simple giving from a variety of locations.  Pushpay has replaced online giving in the place of Church By Mobile.

It’s our goal to get all recurring giving switched over in the next few weeks, so we need to get your scheduled gifts and contributions transitioned to the new Pushpay system.  Here’s how:

Part One:  Cancel scheduled gifts in Church By Mobile (If scheduled gifts are scheduled).

Part Two:  Set up an Account with Pushpay:

  1. Visit and setup your automatic gifts and contributions using Pushpay.  After you setup your contribution and recurring gift, you will be prompted to complete the setup of your Pushpay account!


  1. If Mobile Giving is desired, Download the Pushpay APP.  Once the APP is downloaded, select First Metropolitan Church in the search for an organization field and follow the prompts.  Setting up takes 4 to 5 minutes.


If you have questions or need support for Pushpay, please call 713-983-7878 or email Johnny Ogletree, III at

We are so blessed that you have made the commitment to give in this way, and are honored that you have decided to help us continue to expand God’s family.

Mission of Yahweh Worship

Posted on Updated on

First Met,

The 1st Sunday Worship Service at Mission of Yahweh is progressing well.  The effort is being led by Elder Louis Robinson & Deaconess Gloria Robinson.  Thus far, Minister Dwayne McGary, Deaconess Gloria and Elder Robinson have conducted the service on Sunday night.

The worship services are held in the Chapel by the Community Garden.  We have an average of 24 adults and 5 children that attend the service. There is good participation from the group, as 2 women sang songs and several gave testimonies on how God is Blessing their lives and families.  missionofyahweh

Minister McGary “Spoken Word” came from Psalms 1: 1-6, titled “Staying Focus”.   The women appear to be inspired, appreciative and excited about First Meth’s being involved and providing spiritual worship service at the Mission.yahwehproperty

Deaconess Gloria and Elder Robinson have been invited to attend “The Mission of Yahweh’s First Annual Volunteer Celebration” on September 24, 2015 and plan to attend.
