Feed the Need Lenten Giving emphasis launched with “Souper Bowl” Sunday.
Messiah’s Jr. Youth held their annual “Souper Bowl” canned food and fundraising drive led by Jr. Youth Director Sarah Walker. Coins, cash and checks were collected in large soup pots by youth after each service. Jr Youth also presented a short skit. A total of $416 was raised for ELCA Campaign to End World Hunger.
