Today, God blessed the First Met You Belong Food Pantry with a God sized donation! A private food vendor from Sugar Land, Brother Eric, delivered a portion of his Amazon distribution business products to render support to families for the Thanksgiving Holiday!
The load included snack items of many variety!
Kellogg Protein Bars, Nature Valley Biscuits, Skinny Cow Heavenly Crisp, Nature Valley Clusters, Cheerios, Peanut Butter Patties, Chuckles, Takis, Life Savers, Sweet Tarts, Hershey’s Chocolates, Teddy Grahams, Gold Fish……… The list of products, too numerous to account for.
Brother Eric business, Loanstar Trade, called First Metropolitan Church by change he said, but we know he called by order. An order from above, seeking to provide the things needed to show forth His goodness and mercy to all generations.
We praise God today for the acts of His hands, and for the obedience of Brother Eric, who’s kindness and generosity will be rewarded!
We will be honoring Veterans on Wednesday, Nov. 11, 2015 for there brave service for our country. Why? It is because we know and treasure our freedom as a nation. Our personal spiritual freedom is just as important. There are many things that can hold us captive or cause us to get “Stuck” in life. But grief does not have to be one of them.
Please join us tonight, Monday, Nov. 09, 2015 at 6:30 pm as we cover Session 6:Stuck. Participants will discover: 1. How to prevent getting stuck in grief. 2. Common misconceptions that hinder healing. 3. Why their path to healing isn’t always smooth.
This week’s presentation will be sure to lift your spirit, if you come with a childlike heart. Bring a friend or relative with you to share in this experience.
Brenda Harvey, Facilitator
P.S. Be encouraged by the devotional below.
I EMBRACE MY INDEPENDENCE.
My spiritual quest includes a calling to free myself from limitations and barriers that slow my progress. I let go of fear, feelings of lack, or resentments. Freedom from these roadblocks enables me to fully express my divine potential.
The apostle Paul advised the Corinthians to build their lives upon the foundational teachings of Jesus. Like seekers then, I create my life using spiritual tools. I release perspectives and behaviors no longer supporting me. I embrace those in alignment with my understanding of Truth.
Relying on the guidance and insight of God, I embrace my independence and follow the path to my highest good.
The Senior Adult ministry at First Met continues its effort to take the Gospel of Christ to the Woodwind Lakes Rehabilitation Center off Windfern and Gulf Bank.
On November 4th, the Senior Adult ministry greeted the residents of the Nursing Home with song, sermon and prayer. In the community room, the residents joined the Seniors to sing “Jesus Lifted Me” and “Alleluia-Lord I Love You”.
Scripture and Prayer was given, and then “You Can’t Make Me Doubt Him” and “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms” were sang. The songs chosen by Deacon O’berry were selected to encourage the residents, all of who are being challenged daily to press through the rehabilitation process. While each persons circumstances vary, the faith that all residents need to have a successful rehabilitation experience is the same.
The message from Rev. Skip Harvey, encouraged each resident to maintain hope in the Lord. Finding strength in His Word and comfort via His Spirit to make it through the next series of exercises and test.
The group closed with “I Am On the Battlefield For My Lord” & “God Bless America” to honor Christian soldiers and U.S. soldiers. Closing prayer was given.
