On Sunday, February 13, we will be joining with churches around our country to help hungry people through the Souper Bowl of Caring emphasis. More than 25 years ago, the Souper Bowl of Caring began with a simple prayer from a single youth group:
“Lord, even as we enjoy the Super Bowl football game, help us be mindful of those without a bowl of soup to eat.”
Coinciding with the day of a fairly significant football game during which many people will snack and eat more than plenty, this emphasis invites us to bring canned goods and some loose change to church to support hunger ministries and those who don’t have enough to eat. Bring canned goods into the worship service, and we will collect them as part of worship. Also, there will be children & youth at the doors at the end of the service to collect money you might be willing to donate. All food and money collected will go to support the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC. You can also write a check for this event. Please denote that this is for the Souper Bowl of Caring.
Also, if you have a wagon that we could use on February 13, please let Robin know.
