Messiah Mugs is a service provided by the Senior Youth of Messiah Lutheran Church. Join the Mugs every Sunday morning between services for a tasty cup of “fair-trade” coffee and fellowship as you support the senior youth in this fundraising effort. Proceeds from coffee sales support youth activities, the new facility fund, and the fund for the next National Youth Gathering.
Fair trade is an organized social movement and market-based approach that aims to help producers in developing countries and promote sustainability. The movement advocates the payment of a higher price to producers as well as social and environmental standards in areas related to the production of a wide variety of goods. It focuses in particular on exports from developing countries to developed countries, most notably handicrafts, coffee, cocoa, sugar, tea, bananas, honey, cotton, wine, fresh fruit, chocolate and flowers.
