On Sunday, February 7th, Bethany will be participating in the national Souper Bowl of Caring event. After the 8am, 9am, or 10:30am services, everyone will head to the Fellowship Hall to enjoy ‘blessing’ biscuits and a bowl of soup.
There will be children holding soup pots designated for the Saints or the Colts. (Personally, I think that there should be a pot for Saints...and Sinners!) People will be able to drop $1 in their favorite team’s pot - we're also delivering some soup to neighbors, friends, or others we know that could use a caring visit and a hot bowl of soup.
The Souper Bowl of Caring is a youth-led, nation-wide event that raises money and food for hungry people throughout the USA. Since its start in South Carolina in 1990 over $60 million has been raised!This will be Bethany’s fourth year of participation and we have raised over $6,000 in the last three years. Our donations will go half to the ELCA World Hunger Appeal and half to Metro CareRing, our local food bank.
