Speaking at The5

In the video below from Mar 7, 2021, Pastor Gregg shares the vision for speakers at The5. Below the video, find a list of our upcoming speakers. We're grateful to have a solid team of capable staff members who can faithfully present God's Word each week!

"Masks Only" in Balcony

There are people who want to worship in person at Houston's First but who have concerns about COVID. Therefore, the balcony of the Worship Center at The Loop Campus is a "masks only" area only at The5 — our 5p worship service on Sundays.

  • People who wear masks are welcome to sit anywhere in the Worship Center
  • If people who wear masks choose to sit in the balcony, they are asked to wear their mask the entire time
  • People who do not wear masks are asked to only sit on the lower level of the Worship Center

Keep in mind that you are likely to come across people not wearing masks as you enter the building, in the hallways, and as you enter the Worship Center. However, based on the CDC's findings, these brief interactions are not sufficient to transmit or spread the virus.

With smaller crowds and this designated space in the balcony, we hope more people will feel comfortable coming to worship in person!

Coming Up at The5

If you attend The5, you're invited to take part in the following events and opportunities at Houston's First!

Prayer & Vision Night with Pastor Gregg Matte
Sun, Sep 12 @ 6p — The Loop Campus (Worship Center)

Come hear a NEW vision for Houston's First! The5 and the entire Houston's First family at The Loop are invited to this historic and inspiring night. Pastor Gregg Matte and others will share what's ahead for our church in the months and years to come. There is so much to tell you about that we cannot fit it all in during a Sunday worship service — so we're having this special Prayer & Vision Night!
Here is what this means specifically for The5’s schedule and for The5’s Life Bible Studies:
  • 4:20-4:50p — Fajita Dinner for the WHOLE FAMILY
    • Please arrive earlier and not later so you'll be ready for The5 at 5p. Thank you!
    • Dinner will be served in the Reception Room and we'll eat in the Chapel. Not sure where that is? Come to the Main Foyer and people will guide you from there!
  • 4:45-7:30p — NextGen and childcare is open
    • Our regular Sunday evening activities are provided for birth-12th grade
  • 5p — The5 worship service
    • Teaching will start at 5:15p
  • 6p — Prayer & Vision Night in the Worship Center
    • The5, The5's Life Bible Studies, and people who attend church in the morning will gather as ONE church and ONE campus!
  • 7:30p — Dessert in the Fitness & Recreation Center gym
    • Come enjoy cobbler and Blue Bell!
  • As you leave — take home a gift for everyone!
So, come learn about where God is leading Houston's First and the exciting opportunities He has placed before us to further our impact for the Gospel. The Prayer & Vision Night will also include worship and prayer, too.
Learn more about the Prayer & Vision Night here, including answers to FAQs. Then, make plans to be there this Sunday evening!
