Souper Bowl of Caring

Sunday, February 4th

2017-SouperBown​Souper Bowl of Caring was originally founded by a church youth group. The movement has since expanded to many types of participating groups, fueled by those coming together to worship and make a difference in their community.  Since 1990, faith based communities have been leading the charge and inspiring others to collect dollars and food during the weeks leading up to the Big Game. These groups give 100% of donations to local charities, changing the nation's largest weekend of football into the largest weekend of caring.  Check with Peggy Johnston to learn more about where Westminster sends support received through the Souper Bowl of Caring.  The offering will be collected Sunday, February 4, 2018.

Prayer Shawl Ministry
10 AM  to Noon

Knitters gather at Mary Harris' home.  Their mission is to bring Christ's love to people who need it through the warmth of knitting and crocheting.  You don’t even need to know how to knit—all skill levels are welcome! You can bring your own projects, or work with others to create a Prayer Shawl.  Prayers are offered for recipients of prayer shawls as each is created and also by our congregation members before each shawl is delivered.  The intention is comfort and support.
