Souper Bowl of Caring and Newton Presbytery

Matthew 25:  When did we see you Hungry? 

Sunday, February 2 is the Big Game, aka the Super Bowl, and it is also the 30th Anniversary of the Souper Bowl of Caring.  “Since 1990, ordinary young people have generated an extraordinary $100 million for soup kitchens, food banks and other charities in communities across the country.  The excitement and energy surrounding the Super Bowl can be used to engage young people in service while producing lasting hope for all people.”  Here, within Newton Presbytery, numerous congregations participate in this nationwide event of collecting food and money to help feed the local community.

A follow up article will be submitted to the Presbytery Newsletter following the big game.  If your congregation participates, please send your totals and where you designate the offering to:  [email protected]

If your congregation does not participate, it is not too late to join in.  Check out the Souper Bowl of Caring Website:
