First Met Event Reviews
In 2012, the first ever “It’s Snowing on the Beltway” was held at First Met, The Place Where You Belong on December 22nd. The event, a vision of Lady O, Executive Pastor of First Met, was brought to life by a concerted effort from the You Belong Food Pantry and the Young Adult Ministry of First Met.
Pounds of snow were cast across the Infant Development Center playground; allowing kids of ages ranging from toddlers to 12 years of age to enjoy snow living. Children made snow men and snow angels, giving them a moment to form childhood memories and just for the moment, enjoy being children.
While playing, the kids were able to share moments with the Senior Pastor of First Met, Dr. John Ogletree, Jr. Dr. Ogletree, a Trustee on the Cypress Fairbanks Independent School District Board, took time to pour into the lives of all present, praying and playing; building moments that will never be lost.
The Young Adult Ministry served hot chocolate and snacks, some of which were donated by Cook Middle School. Later, the kids were welcomed by a surprised guest, Santa himself. Santa took pictures with all present and encouraged the children to enjoy the days of their youth and to never loose hope.

On October 31, 2013 First Met hosted our annual Hallelujah Festival. We are excited to have had over 200 attendees from the community and over 100 members in attendance. Guest were able to enjoy food, drinks, candy, games, treats, goodie bags sponsored by Harris County Sheriff’s Office, and a Live performance from Christian Rapper, Iam Justified.
Children of all ages dressed up in their favorite costumes. We had many creative choices to choose from for our Costume contest. James, of Post elementary dressed up as President Obama, and received second place in the costume contest. It was apparent that each child put a lot of thought into their costume, and everyone walked away from the contest as a winner. Needless to say, all who attended had an amazing time participating in the annual costume contest, even the adult.
Guest really enjoyed the live performance by Christian Rapper, Iam Justified. He debut his new single #ChurchFolk featuring Shei Atkins, as well as the video. Everyone loved the performance including Kiotti of Radio-One Houston who just so happen to bring his daughter to enjoy the festivities.
First Metropolitan would like to thank everyone who attended and those who helped make this event a huge success. We are excited to put on positive events for our members, and the community. Save the date for October 31, 2014!
