This year First United Methodist will be privileged to host the Community Lenten Lunch series of the Manhattan Ministerial Association. The theme of our Lenten Lunches will be “The Final Words of Christ from the Cross.” During each luncheon we will hear from a Pastor of another Christian denomination here in Manhattan. They will plan a 30 minute worship service unique to their own worship style. We will have the rich diversity from Roman Catholic to Mennonite expressions. See below for our worship leaders.
Every Wednesday noon we will gather for a church provided lunch in the church’s Fellowship Hall, followed by a 30 minute worship service. The food line will be prepared at 11:45 am with our worship service beginning at 12:15 pm. Everything will conclude a little before 1:00 pm so people can return to work. A free will donation will be accepted, suggested amount $8.
RESERVATIONS ARE APPRECIATED. Please call the church office, 785-776-8821 or go to the website, www.fumcmanhattan.com to make your meal reservation every week prior to Monday noon.
