Message From Pastor Gregg

The further I journey on the road of life, the more I am aware of the changes of season it brings. Some of the paths seem to be the peak of spring, while others—the chill of winter. The winter air is crisp but bids us to hope for the returning of leaves and blossom of flowers. In this season of your life, we desire to extend HOPE to you. Times without employment can bring feelings of fear or uncertainty, but our hope is in the Lord, not in our occupation. May this season draw you closer to Christ and may the First H.O.P.E. ministry help you move forward in securing employment. Please join us on Sunday mornings or evenings and for other activities here at Houston’s First Baptist Church. God is doing great things in our church and we invite you to become deeply involved.
In His HOPE!
Pastor Gregg

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.— Romans 15:13
