Each Christmas, First Met participates in the Adopt-a-Family project. This project connects people from the church and community with needy families who lack the resources to buy gifts for their youth. For many of these families, these gifts will be the only ones received during the holiday season.
The team has already identified some needy families, in which we can share the love of Christ with. These families are made up of a variety of family units in Northwest Houston and Acres Homes, but all have one common trait; their need for assistance making the holidays special for their youth.
To help these families, we are asking, those who are able to, prayerfully help a family from our community this Christmas. Children can be adopted by an individual or as a group or ministry. Groups can also adopt a family, as some of our identified families have multiple children who are in need of a holiday blessing.
Forms will be available in the church foyer and can be obtained online through the Adopt a Family team. Choose to show the love of Christ through personal sacrifice and gift giving. All gifts must be delivered to the church by Saturday December 15th. Gifts will be distributed on Saturday December 21st. For more information, please contact Sister Jackie Henry at 832-588-0505.
