UPCOMING EVENTS AND NEWS.
Month of September – Mission Offering for Saturday's Kitchen
Mennonite Central Committee is responding to the need for food
and other assistance in Beirut, Lebanon, following the massive
explosion of ammonium nitrate on Aug. 4, 2020 that destroyed the
country’s main port and silos filled with grain. Food was already in
short supply in the country because of an existing economic and
political crisis. You can share God’s love and compassion with some
of the most vulnerable people in Beirut by providing food and other
assistance. Donate online at mcc.org/Beirut-response by calling
(888) 563-4676 or by sending a check earmarked for "Beirut
Response" to MCC, 21 S. 12 th St., Akron, PA 17501
We will be offering a small group opportunity to study racism using a video resource, “The Color of Compromise”. This resource looks at the history of how the North American church has been a part of the system of racism and what action is needed to move forward. The next meeting will be Sep 30 at 7:00 in the basement with social distancing in place and masks requested. The group will meet 2x/mo. after that.
Undoing racism and advancing intercultural transformation is a priority of Mennonite Church USA. Resources for congregations and individuals are available at
Youth Group Fundraiser
Wanna take care of your coffee needs while helping out our Youth and working for peace and justice? Sound too good to be true? Mennonite Church USA Convention Planning is excited to share a fundraising opportunity with you. We have partnered with One Village Coffee to bring back *Menno’s Best Coffee. A portion of the proceeds from every bag of coffee you sell comes back to your youth group and the peace and justice work of MC USA. One Village Coffee will be roasting up three specialty coffee options: Menno’s Best Dark Roast, Menno’s Best Medium Roast and Menno’s Best Decaf. They will be available for purchase in 12 oz. packages for $15. For each package sold, youth groups will receive $6 (40%) and $1 will get donated toward MC USA peace and justice work. Any order under 70 bags will be charged a discounted FedEx rate based on weight. Coffee comes in whole bean unless you request to have it ground. If ground, coffee will be ground at the size for a drip coffee maker. All Menno’s Best coffee is Fair Trade and Organic. You can order the coffee at the following website: convention.mennoniteusa.org/mennos-best-coffee-fundraiser/
The Youth Group has a large number of cookbooks left and are looking to try to sell
some. They will be on sale for $10. If you or anyone you know that would be interested
contact Jenn Kaltreider, Sonya Horsley or any youth. OR email us at email@example.com
ATTENTION: We want everyone in the congregation to be able to communicate with our media group by using their new email address. The new address is:
firstname.lastname@example.org . Please add this to your contact list! This will help get any requests to the media group no matter who is scheduled to run sound on any particular day. Also, if you are able to send requests before the service, it would aid in the preparation process.
