2014 Souper BowlOur youth conducted their annual Souper Bowl drive. We did things a little differently and made a game out it! The congregation was asked to guess how many total points would be scored in the Super Bowl. Hailey Lenker, Mattea Penner and Paul Hoch all were able to see in the crystal ball and predicted that 50 points would be scored. The total points was 51! Hailey, Mattea and Paul were each awarded $600,000 (in candy bars that is)! When all pledged donations are turned in the youth will have...

The Humanitarian BowlWe challenged our friends at the Trinity United Methodist Church in Denver Colorado to a friendly competition to see who could raise the most money and collect the most food donations for Super Bowl Sunday. We named it, the Humanitarian Bowl. We did this because both of our teams were competing in the NFL Super Bowl and felt like it was a way to get people fired up about helping those in need in our communities. It was a tremendous success! We have had a huge increase in our donations for this...

Souper Bowl of Caring 2014For the last several years, our youth group (grades 6 to 12) have participated in the Souper Bowl of Caring along with their advisors. We typically have the whole morning worhship service on Super Bowl Sunday.

Souper Bowl 2014This year we were blow out of the water by our congregation. We have 2 service at EWPC and we challenged the 1st service to give big. They did just that and after reporting their gift to the much larger 2nd service we challenged them to give even bigger. They did as well and we collected around 500 dollars this year. It was great. We also made a sweet video you should check out. Our congregation loved it.

No $1.00 donation for usI get it that this is a "youth" driven endeavor but I am not a youth but have done this at my last 3 churches. (My current church has no youth who are involved.) And instead of holding a soup pot and letting people throw in money, (which to me is pretty passive) we have a dinner serving soup and crackers. We ask the people to donate what they would pay for a Sunday lunch. I want to make the point that while we are "sacrificing" by only eating soup and crackers, for some people in the world that...

Bethany Lutheran ChurchWe are located in Denver, CO so you can imagine the excitement here around the Super Bowl game. Our Senior Pastor, Ron Glusenkamp, challenged the congregation to collect $4800 and 4800 pounds of food in honor of the 48th Super Bowl game. All the food and money went to Metro CareRing, our local hunger relief center. We had a HUGE soup pot to collect money in for the Broncos and a teeny tiny pot to collect money for the Seahawks. The congregation came through in a big way and we FAR surpassed our goals...

Faith Youth storyEvery year we collect food and money for the Freeport Area Church Cooperative. Our town in Freeport IL has been especially needy this past year. Many of our businesses have closed and a lot of families are needing help. The weather has been extra cold and many families have needed food because they need their money for heating bills. We are so happy that we could help the food pantry with our collection.
