We'll be glad to pick you up for Sunday mornings and even provide lunch at 12:15 p.m., just after the last service. Our college members also are involved with young adult study groups at 9:45 a.m. on Sundays and 6 p.m. on Wednesdays. Here's a link with more details about programs at First Methodist as well as at the Wesley Foundation Student Center, 435 W. State St., across from the Purdue Memorial Union. Also look for “Wesley” on Facebook under Purdue groups or on the web at
