In 1915, workers struck oil at a well called Stapleton #1. From the 1910’s through the 1950’s oil permeated every aspect of life in Butler County and continues to be an integral part of our life today. Stories from the oil fields can teach us something important about our past, present, future … and our faith.
Join us as First United Methodist Church collaborates with the Kansas Oil Museum to bring you these stories. On August 16, we will begin this new worship series – Discipleship #1: Oil Fields and Faith. Every Sunday we’ll take a look at the history and culture of oil in our county and consider how the search for black gold can help us grow as followers of Jesus Christ.
