On Sunday, April 26, 2015, Abilene First UMC is signed up to serve the meal for K-State Wesley, the United Methodist Campus Ministry at K-State. K-State Wesley is unique among campus ministries in the area as it is a residential site, housing around 40 students, located in a former fraternity house at 1001 Sunset Ave in Manhattan. Each Sunday evening they have a community meal for about 50-60 students provided by an area church. We will be preparing the meal (sloppy joes) on Friday, April 24, at 9:00 am, here in the kitchen at the church. On Sunday, we will meet at 5:00 pm here at the church to go to Manhattan. Once there, we will heat up the food, get it ready, and then serve the students and eat with them at 7:00 pm. The meal is followed by worship.
If you would like to make a monetary donation to help cover the cost of the meal, you may indicate, “K-State Wesley Meal” on your donation and place it in the offering plate. If you are interested in helping to prepare or serve the meal, please let Pastor Jenny know. The purchase of the building for K-State Wesley was one of the outcomes of the Bridges to the Future capital campaign that we participated in a few years ago.
