Greetings First Met!
This Sunday we celebrate 31 years as a family of faith in Northwest Houston. I am happy to report; God has been so good to us. His hand has been and remains firmly on our ministry. I’m sure you have experienced and seen Him work in our congregation as He expands His kingdom.
This Sunday, we celebrate our church anniversary with some anointed guest: Bishop Merton L. Clark of Truth Revealed Ministries in Palm Bay, Florida; anointed psalmist Johnny Johnson and gospel comedian “Cantaloupe.” It’s going to be a glorious 31st celebration! You will not want to miss this Sunday. After the 10:45 service, we will salute our Dream Team with a dinner at 2pm honoring for dynamic service.
I want you to think about the message the Spirit of God gave me last Sunday: “The Plus Side.” God promises to add to our resources when we put His kingdom and righteousness first. (Matthew 6:33) Many of you shared with me how meaningful the message was to you. There are many testimonies in our congregation from those who have experienced the addition of God.
For our 31st I want you to present a significant offering toward our Faith Forward Campaign. We need to catch up by raising about $1million dollars before June of 2019. We can do this!
The Spirit of God has assured Lady O and me that this year will be a breakthrough year. Many blessings will flow to First Met and our members this year. Will you join me in tapping into the overflow from God with a seed of thanksgiving for our church this Sunday? Sow according to how God has blessed you. Sow: $31.00; $62.00; $93.00; $131.00; $262.00 or $1,031.00.
Make this a grand anniversary celebration and help put First Met on the Plus Side. See you Sunday.
From the Heart of Your Pastor,
Dr. John D. Ogletree, Jr.
