Consider Souper Bowl of Caring
On Sunday, 140 million Americans will tune in to the Super Bowl football game. There will be parties with abundant food, friendship and fellowship. At the same time, there will be people worrying about staying warm, finding shelter and a warm meal. Please join young people around the country as they demonstrate God’s love by loving their neighbors through the Souper Bowl of Caring. It’s a simple, yet significant act of caring for others. Drop $1 (or more) in the soup pot as you leave worship on Feb. 3. Our young people are developing hearts for giving that can last a lifetime. Please support their efforts. The donations maybe given to the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank or an antihunger organization listed at http://www.souperbowl.org/charities/.
