It is almost time for the Super Bowl! As we celebrate with food and festivities, watching the game along with a halftime show, it is good to remember ways we can make a difference in our community. Souper Bowl of Caring is a youth-inspired movement working across the nation to tackle hunger in our local communities. Mobilizing grassroots resources including churches, schools, civic groups and caring individuals, the Souper Bowl of Caring movement (for over 30 years) has created over $160 million worth of support that stays completely local. The need is so great this year with over 14 billion meals needed to feed food-insecure neighbors in our country!
On Sunday, February 7, we will collect an offering for Souper Bowl. You can write in the note of your checks that it is for “Souper Bowl” and you can also give online under “Special Offerings.” Put in the comment/note section: Souper Bowl of Caring. The funds will go to support those who are food insecure in our local community.
The Fellowship & Welcome Committee will also use Zoom to have a “Soupless Bowl” following our Service on Sunday, February 7th. There is a lot to talk about. An “old” 43-year-old quarterback, Tom Brady versus the young 25-year-old Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City vs Tampa Bay, the Midwest vs the Southeast…
So, put your favorite pot of soup on the stove! Wear the colors of the team you support! If you are interested in some lively conversation with friends you haven’t seen in a while, please remain on Zoom following the service. Associate Pastor Joanna Hipp will do her magic and move us into meeting/breakout rooms. We will have questions to stir up the conversation. While we can’t serve soup over the internet (at least not yet), you are welcome to make your own. We on the Fellowship & Welcome Committee hope you all doing well. We hope to see y’all on Sunday, February 7th.
