Wednesday Nights Downtown
At Topeka First UMC
Join us on Wednesday Nights!
All Wednesday Night activities are temporarily suspended due to COVID-19.
Wednesday nights, during the school year, we gather with members, friends and neighbors to enjoy a time of fellowship and food followed by classes and activities for all age levels.
Dinner is catered weekly and served from 5:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Meals cost $8 for adults, $6 for seniors, and is FREE for children and youth under 18.
Following the meal, participants engage in either age-specific or intergenerational growth opportunities. From a children's choir to an adult Bible class, there is something for everyone when you spend Wednesday Nights Downtown!
"Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path."
