Good evening Brothers,
I wanted to inform each of you that we will not meet this Saturday, April 1st for breakfast, and no this is not an April Fools Joke! Instead we will meet Saturday, April 8th at 9:00 am for our monthly fellowship, food and first word from our pastor. We will have a brief breakfast and ask that you stay and pitch in with our clean up efforts that day as we prepare for Resurrection Sunday!
Also, the Burn Brothers are looking for a few good men (who can cook) to join their team. If you’re interested please see Brother Charlie Evans for details. And last but certainly not least, we are in the planning stages for our annual Men’s Conference scheduled this year for the weekend before Father’s Day, June 9 & 10. If you would like to assist in the planning we will host our first meeting this Sunday, April 2nd immediately following the 7:45 service. Look for us down front in the worship center where our deacons usually sit. Bring your ideas and your enthusiasm as we plan for our best men’s conference yet! See you Sunday.
Minister Chris Butler

First Met Family and Friends,
The celebration of the DEATH and RESURRECTION of OUR LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST is approaching. That’s right, EASTER. We will host our annual Good Friday Celebration, April 14, 2017 beginning at 11 am. We are anticipating a huge showing from our surrounding community and friends.
Last year you all volunteered time or donated candy, eggs or other items that made this event a success for our church and community. We are reaching out to you for support and help with this years Good Friday Celebration. It would be greatly appreciated if you can volunteer time, donate candy or pre-boiled eggs.
Spread the word and visit us after service in the lobby area. Thank you for your continued support and God bless you all.

Greetings First Met Family,
I’m excited about our 30th Church Anniversary Celebration on Sunday, February 26th!
The Bible includes incredible records of Jewish holidays and festivals commanded by God to recall His work in their history. These celebratory remembrances are some of the most important celebrations of the Jewish faith.
We too will celebrate and remember the goodness and grace of our God for 30 years of ministry in Northwest Houston. God has blessed us to make a noticeable difference in the lives of people in our church, community and city. God has provided for us and protected us over these years, so we have a lot to celebrate.
Our special guest will be: Bishop Merton L. Clark of the Truth Revealed Ministries of West Palm Bay Florida; the Anointed Psalmist Jekalyn Carr; as well as Dinner and Festivities on our grounds. It’s going to be a great day celebrating our Great God. So, don’t miss it!
Dress for our celebration is jeans, khakis, with casual or tennis shoes. All who remain for the celebration after the 10:45 service will receive a special commemorative T-shirt. We need the sizes of your entire family (children & adults). Email the sizes to Kimberly Washington at email@example.com.
I am asking that you each bring a special offering for our 30th Church Anniversary. Cheerfully consider giving a gift in one of the following amounts: $30, $60, $90, $120, $300, $3,000. Special envelops with be available for you.
Let’s all be here to make our 30th Church Anniversary one we will always remember as a special celebration that shows our appreciation and gratitude to our Great God with Great Expectations for things to come!
For His Glory,
Dr. John D. Ogletree, Jr.
