Please contact Sara Johnson, 713.957.5806, should you desire additional information.
Donations to the World Mission Offering are received from November 2014 through January 2015. Every dollar makes a difference when it comes to supporting the work of taking the Gospel to every corner of the world.
You may donate to the World Mission Offering online or use special World Mission Offering envelopes available at each Houston's First campus.
The gifting of stock to the church is a "win-win" situation for both the donor and the church. Since the church is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, the gift will qualify as a charitable contribution and is tax deductible. This is a very simple and easy process that can be coordinated through the Financial Services Office of the church.
If you donate stock, make an IRA distribution, or desire additional information, please contact Amber Willet, 713.957.5807.
