You can still give online through this Sunday by selecting Big Offering from the dropdown menu here. Thank you for your continued generosity!

FAMILY PROMISE HOSTING WEEK
December 27 - January 3
Family Promise helps low-income families in Wichita achieve lasting independence by providing shelter, meals, and support. Several churches partner together to make this happen, and our turn to host these families is coming soon. We currently need more overnight hosts and other volunteers to serve these homeless families. Learn more and sign up to help here.

CREATIVE ARTS VOLUNTEERS
Our media and tech ministries have grown significantly in 2020, and we're looking for some help! If you're interested in joining the tech team on Sunday mornings or helping with social media, photography, and web needs throughout the week, we'd love to talk with you. We have options for those attending in person as well as things you can do online anywhere. Contact Matt Ehresman for details at mehresman@firstmbchurch.org.
