The Moscow United Methodist Church126 Church Street Office Phone: 570-842-7251Moscow, PA 18444 August 9, 2017 IssueFun Summer Mission Opportunity – Youth, Adults & FamiliesAre you interested in helping with the corn harvest from a small local farmer to provide fresh corn to area food pantries? We need people to help follow a truck through a farm near Hazleton and pick the corn by hand on Saturday, August 19th. We’ll meet at MUMC at 8 a.m. and carpool. It should not take too long and will be a lot of fun. Wear sturdy shoes, jean and a cap for sun – plan to get dirty. We’re thinking we’ll be back in Moscow by noon but bring a brown bag lunch just in case. To RSVP and get permission slips call or email the church office, 570-842-7251 or [email protected]. Matthew 25 Bottles Ministry at MUMC When Lent began in March, our church began an outreach mission to collect prescription and over the counter medicine bottles for distribution to third world countries through Matthew 25 Ministries of Ohio. As of Memorial Day Weekend, we have collected 1,005 bottles. My husband John and I collected, cleaned, uncapped, washed, dried, recapped, sorted by color and size, and bagged these bottles. They were taken to the UPS store and shipped to Ohio. From there, they will be added to other donations from around the United States and sent to distribution sites in underdeveloped nations. A clean medicine bottle IS the difference between life and death in an undeveloped nation. Thank you to everyone who saved and brought in your medicine bottles, and for spreading the word to co-workers and friends, in support of this outreach mission. We are continuing to collect bottles – the rules are simple: 1. plastic and with a cap; 2. peel off the label; 3. prescription and over the

counter bottles accepted. Put them in the bin in the narthex. We will continue to collect through the fall and I’ll send another shipment in December. Thanks, Carol Verrone Carol and John Verrone’s dining room table as they prepare bottles for shipment to Matthew25Ministries, June 2017 Two MUMC Youth to participate in Helping Hearts and Hands Mission Camp in Wayne County Please keep Robin Kelly and Jessica Galey in prayer, August 16 –August 20, 2017 as they join with youth and adults from several other churches in PA to help rural residents with a variety of home projects in northern Wayne County, grow in God’s Spirit and have a lot of fun.
