308. MissionCast – Mt. Vernon UMC and Potato Drops


The Mt. Vernon United Methodist Church sponsors three or four Society of St. Andrew potato drops at their church each year to help feed the hungry in their community. To raise money for the transportation costs of the potatoes they have various fund raisers like the potato soup supper shown in this MissionCast. Joe Bartelsmeyer, retired from the Office of Creative Ministries staff, started the potato drop ministry in Missouri and is a member of the Mt. Vernon UMC. You can contact Joe through the Mt. Vernon United Methodist Church by calling 417-466-2459.
