Grantville Youth Fellowship Activities
The Grantville Youth Group Helps with the 2017 Bishop Round Up Against Hunger
In November, four members of the Youth Group participated in the 2017 Bishops Round Up Against Hunger. The Youth Group went to Lawrence with Pastor Rick to help with the work of receiving and packing of donations from churches throughout the district. They unloaded the food and other items, stacking them in the appropriate location and later distribution and packing. They enjoyed a sunny but cold day joining with youth from other churches.
This year was the last collection for Bishop’s Round-up at the Fairgrounds in Lawrence. The tradition has lasted for 40 years and seen truckloads of donated items. These items were distributed throughout the state of Kansas. Cash donations are distributed in Kansas, Haiti and Mexico. The Grantville United Methodist Church has donated both boxes of items and cash to the event for many years. This year, we sent 33 school kits, 20 health kits, six boxes of food, three boxes of bedding, one box of paper products, one box of HUGS (Hats, Underwear, Gloves and Socks) for children, three boxes of diapers, one box of toys and monetary donations. The Church and GUMYF would like to thank everyone who made donations and helped make the event a success.
