We CAN Do This!
This year FPC-Tyler, has been challenged by our friends at FPC-Athens, FPC-Plano, and St. Andrew Presbyterian Church in Longview to see which church can collect the most canned goods for the Souper Bowl of Caring! Throughout the entire month of January the youth are asking for you to help us by bringing as many canned goods and as often as you can in order for our church to win the honor of being the inaugural “Grace Presbytery Souper Bowl” Champion and fight hunger in our communities! All our collections here at FPC Tyler will go to PATH. Whichever church collects the most canned goods wins the inaugural “Grace Presbytery Souper Bowl” Champion trophy and bragging rights for a year!
We have an anonymous donor who is challenging our church - if FPC Tyler can collect over 3,000 canned goods, they will donate an additional 3,000 cans to our total! How amazing is that?
Sunday School Showdown!
From now until February 4, we are challenging each Sunday school class to collect the most canned goods. The winning class will get a free catered breakfast compliments of Student Ministry. Let’s get in the spirit of giving and donate canned goods to help feed the hungry!
Please give generously on Super Bowl Sunday, February 4. Look for a youth with a soup pot by any church entrance.
More than 27 years ago, the Souper Bowl of Caring began with a simple prayer from a single youth group: “Lord, even as we enjoy the Super Bowl football game, help us be mindful of those without a bowl of soup to eat.”
Since that day, more than $110 million has been raised for local charities across the country through Souper Bowl of Caring. It has become a powerful movement that is transforming the time around the Big Game into the nation’s largest celebration of giving and serving.
Through this mission young people learn what it’s like to make a positive difference in the world—as they collect food, raise money and volunteer to work in charities that provide shelter to the homeless, food to the hungry and compassion to those in need.
Be part of this movement that is sharing God’s love with those in need. Please give generously on Super Bowl Sunday, February 5. Look for a youth with a soup pot by any church entrance. Every dollar and can of food donated goes to PATH in Tyler.
