Soups On! Past Souper Sundays.
This Sunday, February 3rd, folks all over America will come together in their home, at a friend’s home or at a sports bar to watch the big game between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams as Super bowl LIII is played. Some will even have the fortune of witnessing sport’s history first-hand at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
It is a day of epic excitement, offering something for everyone. Even those who may not be died-in-the-wool football fans (and yes, there are some) can look forward to the half-time entertainment that will feature big names like Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Gladys Knight. Others can’t wait to check out the commercials that go hand in hand with the super bowl. Foodies are practicing recipes that they will show-off to friends and neighbors as they celebrate this big day.
Still another way to celebrate Super Bowl is through Souper Bowl of Caring. The movement was originally founded by a church youth group but has expanded to many types of participating groups.
Central Christian Church will gather in Fellowship Hall following morning worship this Sunday to enjoy a bowl of hot soup before going home to plan for the afternoon activities. Members and visitors are invited to leave a can of soup or dry soup mix in a box designated for the Rams or for the Patriots, whichever team you support.
The food gathered will be delivered to North Dallas Shared Ministries to be distributed to Dallas’ poorest families and individuals.
Stop by Central to donate a can of soup and you will have scored, whatever the score.
Morning worship is at 11 a.m. in the sanctuary. Bring Your Dog to Church is at 9 a.m. in the dog park. Souper Bowl of Caring is at 12 noon in Fellowship Hall. All are welcome.
