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/
Jayne will be working from home now through mid-January. She is available via texting or phone at any time by calling 330-224-3944 or send an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If any needs arise over the coming months please let her or one of the Lay Leaders know! (Joy Cotchen, Bill Hunsberger, Glenn Lehman)
Mennonite Church USA’s (MC USA) 2020 Advent at Home Devotional, “We Wait for Jesus,” is now available. A copy was emailed to everyone who is on our email list. If you did not receive one or would like a printed copy, a few are available at the mailboxes.
This annual guide for home-based worship provides daily and weekly scripture readings, prayers and activities for individuals and families observing the season of anticipation leading to the birth of Jesus.
The Food Pantry at St. Francis Sharing and Caring needs volunteers to check in clients, pack boxes, stock shelves and load vehicles with groceries. If you are interested in volunteering for one 3-hour shift each month please contact Michelle Mock at 814- 242-5829.
Your continued financial support of the church is greatly appreciated. You can send your offerings to the church address (1201 Soap Hollow Rd, Johnstown 15905) or to Sharon Shetler (667 Soap Hollow Road, Hollsopple, PA 15935). Or you can go to our website (stahlmennonite.org) and donate electronically. It is easy and safe!
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:
email@example.com . 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.
