Volunteers begin gathering at 4:30am @ First United Methodist in downtown Austin to prepare a delicious and well-appreciated breakfast of Scrambled Eggs, Sausage Patties, Biscuits & Gravy, Coffee/Juice/Milk. We feed 300-350. Our annual Souper Bowl of Caring offering helps to supplement the cost of the breakfast which is around $400 each month.

Helping the Hungry

We here at Christ Lutheran Church took this wonderful opportunity to help. With such an uplifting environment with the SuperBowl game it was an awesome time for our congregation to engage in helping the less fortunate and provide food for our local Palatine Township of Illinois food pantry which in turn provided more help to our community. We raised $274.00 and 300 items of food for our local food pantry.

2014 Souper Bowl

Our youth conducted their annual Souper Bowl drive. We did things a little differently and made a game out it! The congregation was asked to guess how many total points would be scored in the Super Bowl. Hailey Lenker, Mattea Penner and Paul Hoch all were able to see in the crystal ball and predicted that 50 points would be scored. The total points was 51! Hailey, Mattea and Paul were each awarded $600,000 (in candy bars that is)! When all pledged donations are turned in the youth will have...

The Humanitarian Bowl

We challenged our friends at the Trinity United Methodist Church in Denver Colorado to a friendly competition to see who could raise the most money and collect the most food donations for Super Bowl Sunday. We named it, the Humanitarian Bowl. We did this because both of our teams were competing in the NFL Super Bowl and felt like it was a way to get people fired up about helping those in need in our communities. It was a tremendous success! We have had a huge increase in our donations for this...

Souper Bowl of Caring 2014

For the last several years, our youth group (grades 6 to 12) have participated in the Souper Bowl of Caring along with their advisors. We typically have the whole morning worhship service on Super Bowl Sunday. Because we have been doing this for many years, we are now writing our own skits (some may be ideas of old ones here that are refreshed or completely rewritten), prayers, scripture jams, etc. to not only tell the story behind the Souper Bowl of Caring but to challenge our congregation to be...
