SOUPER BOWL SUNDAY

It is time to collect soup and soup fixings for Souper Bowl Sunday!

Each year, Shepherd of the Hills collects food for Valley View and St. Mary’s food banks in honor of Super Bowl.

This year the Missions team will be receiving donations between January 1, 2022 and February 15, 2022. We need soup, all the fixings for soup (beans, pasta, canned veggies, tomatoes, tomato sauce or anything that goes into a big pot of comfy soup), chili, canned stews or canned meat. We are also collecting crackers, corn muffin mix or other long shelf-life sides.

Collection bins will be placed throughout the church campus. Monetary donations can be made out to SHUMC with “Super Bowl Sunday” in the memo line. Blessings!

RUMMAGE SALE THANK YOU

Along with taking in about $4,960, we donated items to UMOM, Justa Center, Rotary and children in foster care. A big thank you to everyone who helped during the rummage sale sort and pack, set up, selling and clean up. A lot of work goes into an event such as this, even if it was much smaller than in years past. We also added security this year and appreciate those who took shifts guarding the property overnight so we did not have theft or vandalism.

 

I am hoping that as I step away – and move away – that someone will come forward and perhaps create a somewhat different event that draws the church and greater community together. Blessings and thanks for all the support over the years.

REMINDER…..

 
 
 
 
Just a reminder to write a little personal thank you on the postcards you received at church. Leave it for  someone with a tip or gift card and a smile!

 

If they ask you why, say “to show you how much Jesus loves you!”
