Soccer is growing across the USA. We now have leagues for children, youth and adults. We have churches sponsoring teams and leagues. And here in the Philadelphia area we now have a pro-soccer team, “Philadelphia Union.”
Based on this growing sport the Eastern PA Conference’s UMM are sponsoring “United Methodist Night at the Philadelphia Union” on Sunday, August 16, game time 7 PM, with credit going to Jarrettown UMC’s Youth Group for the idea!
Let’s go where the young people are, and help fund UM ministries – GO BLUE!
Philadelphia Union plays in the USA/Canada top professional soccer league – Major League Soccer (MSL). Union’s stadium is PPL Park located right off Rt. I-95 at the Commodore Barry Bridge Exit in Chester, Pa. PPL Park is just a few blocks from our own St. Daniels UMC. The Union uses St. Daniels’ parking lot.
For discounted tickets, use code “UMM15″ at www.philadelphiaunion.com/promo. Tickets are available for $25 in the corner, with $5 being donated back to United Methodist Ministries! Groups of 10 or more receive additional savings. Fundraising options are also available. For help with a group order, call 610-497-9909 or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
