Each year our youth invite the congregation to participate in the Souper Bowl of Caring!
Started in 1990 at Spring Valley Presbyterian Church in Columbia, SC, 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” led by Brad Smith, who was serving as a seminary intern at the time.
This gave birth to an idea. Why not harness the energy and enthusiasm of Super Bowl weekend, a time when people come together for football, food and fun, to unite the nation for a higher good? Youth groups could collect dollars in soup pots and canned food for those in need and send every dollar and food donation DIRECTLY to a local charity of THEIR choice.
Several years ago, we started to support A Place at the Table – a pay-what-you-can café just blocks from First Presbyterian Church. A Place at the Table has become a fabric of the downtown Raleigh community and we are proud to support their work!
Normally, we would gather for an after-church lunch and collect money there. While we navigate this pandemic, we’re still excited to support such a meaningful ministry during a time when their work is so greatly needed.
