‘Souper Bowls of Caring’ at local churches

On Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 1, young people from First Lutheran and Bethel Lutheran Churches join other organizations across the country in the “Souper Bowl of Caring” to fight hunger.

This Super Bowl Sunday, 128 million people all over the world 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. Join young people at local churches and around the U.S., 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.

Bethel Lutheran’s Sunday service is at 9 a.m. First Lutheran’s “Civic Youth Sunday” services are at 8 and 10:30 a.m. At both churches, young people with soup pots will stand by the front door following worship. Worshipers are invited to drop a donation in the soup pot as they leave worship. Funds raised will go directly to help hungry people, both in Morrison county and through the ELCA World Hunger Appeal.

Last year, 12,000 organizations across the country raised over $3,500,000 in the “Souper Bowl of Caring.” The youth at Bethel Lutheran and First Lutheran encourage people to donate to their congregation and to area agencies that fight hunger.
