let them know everything will be alright
Because Thou turnest to God!

Souper Bowl 2014This year we were blow out of the water by our congregation. We have 2 service at EWPC and we challenged the 1st service to give big.

No $1.00 donation for usI get it that this is a "youth" driven endeavor but I am not a youth but have done this at my last 3 churches. (My current church has no youth who are involved.) And instead of holding a soup pot and letting people throw in money, (which to me is pretty passive) we have a dinner serving soup and crackers. We ask the people to donate what they would pay for a Sunday lunch. I want to make the point that while we are "sacrificing" by only eating soup and crackers, for some people in the world…
