Souper Bowl of Caring on Youth SundayIn between services, Youth were stationed outside of the sanctuary or fellowship hall (whichever location had the service) with large pots to collect the money that the congregation wishes to donate. I firmly believe that much of the donation is a direct result of the warm reception of the Youth sharing of themselves during worship. Because the Youth showed that this was something that they cared about, helping those in need, the congregation wanted to show their support and encouragement of this...

Friendly competition for a good causeThis year, we tried something a little different. We gave each variety of soup a team name & asked soup enthusiasts to gain points for their team by bringing in cans of their favorite. We kept score on a football pool chart from the party store. The Mighty Minestrone, New England Clams, Valiant Vegetables and all the rest battled it out, but in the end, the Baltimore Ramens were the victors. Of course, the real winner is the H.E.L.P. Food Pantry, which received 375 food items. We celebrated...

It's All Good!Our original time to collect donations was from 10 a.m. to 1p.m. One o'clock came so we were packing everything up to leave. My brother pulls my car up to the curb to load the canned goods. Unfortunately, he accidentally locks my keys in my car with it running! So we're standing outside waiting for someone to unlock it for us. We decide since we're standing here, might as well get the poster and continue collecting. While we were waiting, one person comes by and asks us to wait a while until he gets...

2013This was our first year to do the Souper Bowl of Caring. It was a great experience and our group had fun doing it as well. Our group donated all the items to St. Vincent de Paul Society. This organization provides food and other items to people in need. Sometimes it is for people who are just on hard times right now and they don't qualify for other programs. Our group did a great job amd already made plans for next year!

Blessed to be a blessingThis year we were able to give away 49 bags of food to our local community families. This year the bags contained soup crackers which we didn't have last year. Our goal is to make it better and better every year.
It is always a blessing to knock on someone's door and take them by surprise and bless them with groceries. Thanks for letting us be a blessing with you.
