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/
Christmas Gift Idea!
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 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.
