SOUPER BOWL OF CARING

SouperBowl-logo

With the Big Game being played this Sunday, it is once again time to join with millions of others for the Souper Bowl of Caring.  Bring in canned or boxed goods this Sunday morning, and set them by the helmet of the team you are rooting for in the Superbowl game Sunday afternoon.  The food will then be passed on to help address the problem of hunger in our country which is much larger than most of us suspect.  Thank you!

Grace Bags

At this time, we are in need of someone, or a small group, to be in charge of selling Grace Bags for about 15 minutes after the 11 am worship service.  Grace Bags are medium size Ziploc bags filled with small items of food and some daily necessities and a lot of love, for handing out to those who are in need.  This is an awesome ministry, we have sold hundreds of bags and helped start this ministry in a dozen other churches. Please consider helping us after service. Thank you to everyone that has purchased and distributed the bags, helping feed the hungry people of our community. If you have any questions or would like to help, contact Lud or Wayne.
