In Wichita

We believe it's important to make a difference in the community where we live. Here are just a few options of ministries and organizations that we trust and regularly support. If you would like to help with any of these, contact Linda at loelze@firstmbchurch.org to learn about next steps. 

 

Downtown Breakfasts
Every Sunday morning, those who are homeless or struggling financially are able to enjoy a free breakfast in downtown Wichita. Several groups partner together to make this happen, and several times throughout the year we ask First MBers to help provide casseroles and serve at the event. Learn more
