SCHOOL KITS – A MISSION GIVING EXPERIENCE
Take your children, grandchildren or young friends with you shopping and let them help select what is needed for the school kits to give to a child in another country. Maybe they have their own money they would like to use for this mission giving experience. Visit with them about countries where children don’t have books, school supplies or even a classroom, and that a school kit may be their only educational resource. The United Methodist women have mission books for children and young people to read, these are located downstairs in the UMW room.
We will plan on doing UMCOR school kits for the month of August. There are usually some great bargains in the stores for school supplies as time gets closer for another school year to begin.
You may contribute full kits or parts of a kit or cash, which ever you prefer and the mission committee will put the kits together. School Kits may be brought to the MV UMC any time during the month of August and September.
- School Kit – Value: $11 per kit
- 3 Notebooks, approx. 8 ½ x 11 wide ruled (210 to 250 sheets total) spiral or bound
- 1 30-centimeter Ruler: Hard or flexible
- 1 Box of 24 Crayons (24 only)

“Read and Feed Me”
The “READ AND FEED ME” initiative is so important in Missouri Valley United Methodist Church because of the following statistics:
- Approximately 1 in 4 Iowa children read below grade level—that’s 100,000 children. • Children reading below grade level in 3rd grade are 4 times more likely to drop out of high school.
In this “READ AND FEED ME” Ministry, volunteers of Missouri Valley UMC will mentor and coach kids in reading and provide nutritious food.
“Read and Feed Me” will begin on May 28 and it will end on August 22. Reading and Feeding will be at Missouri Valley United Methodist Church, 308 E. Superior St, IA 51555, Monday through Saturday at 11:00 am-12:00 Noon.
For more information call 712-642-3168.
Come and bring your kids!!!!
Just a friendly reminder to bring in items for the food pantry by the first Sunday of each month.
