September 27 | 7:00 p.m. | First MB South Building (directions)
This weekend, Christians are meeting in multiple locations throughout Wichita to pray together. You are invited to join other First MBers to pray Sunday evening at our south building (former home to Wichita House of Prayer). Come to pray for what God wants to do in and through our city, as well as in and through our south building!

September 30 | 6:30 p.m. | Worship Center and Online
We have invited friend and local pastor D.M. Gates to join us on September 27 and 30 to help us learn about the racial divide in our culture and how we are called to respond. In 2009, Pastor Gates and his wife founded Mending Place Ministries here in Wichita, and continue to pastor their diverse church family today. Pastor Gates will bring the message during our Sunday worship services next week, and he and Pastor Brent will have this extended conversation Wednesday night. Join us in the Worship Center or watch the livestream on Facebook or YouTube

Starting September 30
Earlier this year we started a churchwide Bible reading plan using the YouVersion Bible app. Join our plan to receive a daily chapter to read, plus an opportunity to ask questions or share comments with other First MBers. Learn more or sign up to join us here. This new plan starts September 30!

October 3 | 8:00 a.m. | Worship Center
Men, you're invited to join us for the one-day Stand Firm conference to energize your faith and explore your identity in Christ. Join other guys from the Wichita area as we worship and experience God together. Cost is $20 and includes breakfast and lunch. Learn more and sign up.

October 13 | 7:00 p.m. | in Host Homes
Attention ladies: This year our Fall Connections event is going digital! Instead of gathering in the Activity Center, we'll be live-streaming a fun evening of connection and inspiration, featuring guest speaker Caitlin Henderson. Instead of hosting a table, this year please consider hosting a few friends at your home for dinner or coffee and dessert. The cost is $5. Learn more & sign up.

Every year we accept nominations from our church family for leaders willing to serve on our Leadership Board and Faith and Life team. Nomination forms will be available Sunday at the Info Wall in the lobby or online here. The deadline for submissions is Sunday, October 4.
