Souper Bowl of Caring

NEXT SUNDAY:  We will participate in the “Souper Bowl of Caring.” This is a special offering taken on Super Bowl Sunday, which is February 3 this year. All the proceeds go to our local Compassionate Food Pantry. We are thinking of providing three soup pots to collect your donations again this year, since some football fans think the Rams don’t deserve to be at the game, and the Patriots are, well, the Patriots. If so, the third pot will be marked “Food Pantry Fan.”
