IT'S SOUP-ER BOWL TIME !!!!
The soup-er bowl food/money collection began as a youth-led movement in 1990 to help the hurt and hungry around the world. A seminary intern from South Carolina, who wanted to use the energy surrounding the Super Bowl to care for those who face hunger and poverty and to break the negative impact on those individuals as well as the communities in which they live offered the following prayer, which later became the vision statement of the group.

cookies to each singer), and was attended by over 50 people, including many of our regular Lunch with Friends participants. We are so thankful to Brett and the choir for keeping us on their tour schedule!

Other Past Fun Events!
So nice to have this "tradition" return again!
Twenty six folks gathered to sing Christmas carols to neighborhood friends as well as at Maple Lake Assisted Living. We haven't done this in a very long time, and we all are now wondering why!
The camaraderie was great, the supper of chili and cornbread was fabulous (thanks Sally!), and the weather fully cooperated.
But, the very best thing was the smile on the faces of those for whom we were singing! They were thrilled to see so many of their church family, and hear a bit of the Christmas season in song. At one house, the neighbors actually asked us to come sing for them a bit to boost their holiday spirit! Thanks to all who organized, and all who sang.
Thanks for the photos, Marge McKee!
