Greetings First Met Family,
The “November to Remember” celebration for our pastors Drs. John and Evelyn Ogletree is underway. We have an array of activities designed to make this year’s 31st appreciation celebration a memorable one. In keeping with our pastors’ vision, this year’s theme is “Leading with Great Expectations”, II Timothy 1:12.
The celebration will kick off with a scrumptious breakfast, Saturday November 4th for the appreciation of the Ogletree Family (tickets can be purchased on the website under the registration tab). On Friday, November 10th, join us for “Founders, Family & Friends night”. We will continue on Wednesday, November 15th get ready to touch heaven with a night of prayer and praise. Then on Sunday November 19th during 7:45 and 10:45 services, we will have the spirit filled worship service. We will culminate the appreciation celebration with “Pastors’ Appreciation Sunday” You don’t want to miss any of these events!
During “A November to Remember” celebration, each ministry will be presenting their gifts to our pastors:
1st Sunday – Staff, Leaders, Ministers
2nd Sunday – Youth, Teens, Young Adults, and College Students
3rd Sunday – Ministries and Members
Let’s make this 31st appreciation celebration “A November to Remember”. For further information, please contact the church at 713-983-7878.
We were blessed this week to start off with a contribution from Virginia. This donation was the combined effort of Bethany Baptist Church and the ladies of Delta Sigma Theta. They were able to fill an 18 wheeler with supplies and clothing that would fill the gymnasium twice with resources for those whom were affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Throughout the week, volunteers sacrificed not only time, but their resources, choosing to put others before their own needs. Right at 20 men, women and teens worked hard to unload the resources, and then over 30 volunteers came to fold and stage the resources to be gathered by those in need.
In addition to blessing our local community, our community partners were able to share these resources with those they serve. We are honored to be connected with groups like Cook Middle School, Woodwinds Lakes Rehabilitation, Building and Restoring Hope Inc. Church of the Nazarene, Chamillionaire, Pay it Forward, The Rhodes School, Dream Out Loud Inc..
