It all started thirty years ago in Columbia, South Carolina with a simple prayer: “Lord, even as we enjoy the Super Bowl football game, help us be mindful of those who are without a bowl of soup to eat.” Souper Bowl of Caring is a grassroots movement that has transformed the Big Game into a nation-wide movement inspiring people to give locally and make a collective impact on hunger. This year, over 5,000 groups collected over $10.6 million in dollars and food donations for hunger-relief charities across the country. Over $163 million has been collected since Souper Bowl of Caring began in 1990. We will be receiving canned/non-perishable foods for the Giles County Christian Service Mission beginning this Sunday, January 3 through Sunday, Feb. 7. Look for the soup pot display near the front doors of the sanctuary.
