"I found this article while sleuthing the newspaper archives. It was on page one of The Kansas Agriculturist under “Church Notes.” “Methodist Church — Large crowds continue to greet the pastor, Rev. Jas. B. Bollman, at every service. The attention is all that could be desired, the music inspiring and the interest deepening."

150th history wall
“To know history is to know life. Wamego UMC is living history filled with humble servants and fascinating events. To commemorate our 150 years of existence, a history wall was unveiled July 2, 2017 and hangs on the west wall of our gathering area. It consists of three panels — one for each of the 50 years our church has been here."
"150th History Wall" was written by our Church Historian, Teresa Weixelman. It was printed in our August 2017 newsletter.
