Souper Bowl of Caring – Sunday February 2
after worship

      We are going to celebrate Super Bowl, by coming together and eating!!! But you need to bring the food. Bring your best chili or soup to be enjoyed by all. Let’s not forget to bring crackers, cornbread or dessert to dress up the occasion. And you get to donate money to eat your chili. What a great opportunity! All monies donated will go to Anson Crisis Ministries to help feed the hungry. Plus bring a can or cans of food and vote for the team you want to win the Super Bowl.
     There will be boxes designated for the two teams in the Super Bowl. Each can is a vote. Let’s see who FUMC wants to win.
