Soup-er Bowl Sunday will look different the children, families, and youth aren’t able to gather to make the soups, roasts, and all the sides for the Food at First Soup-er Bowl Sunday meal.

The youth will still have their team boxes out to gather non-perishable food items for the free market too. Some of those much needed items are soups, cereal, and canned chicken. The boxes will be in the church’s south entryway February 1-7. Monetary donations can be dropped off at the church (check or cash) office that week with note stating it’s for “Souper Bowl.” Credit Card donations can be made by going to

Our Missions Committee has already committed to giving $500! Let’s try to match or even beat that amount!!

Food at First has continued to serve guests a meal every day throughout the pandemic. They do so in a “to go” style method.

These items are specific because after almost an entire year of serving meals “to go,” they have figured out what works best.
