Senior Service Awards Luncheon
We will be collecting cans of soup on February 3rd and donating them to The Love Kitchen. You can bring your donation of soup (or a financial donation) to church on Sunday or to the office during the week. Our goal is 300 cans of soup! Don't forget to wear your favorite team jersey on the 3rd.
Souper Bowl of Caring is youth across the nation working to fight hunger and poverty in their own communities around the time of the Super Bowl football game.
In the weeks leading up to or on Super Bowl Sunday, young people take up a collection (many use a soup pot), asking for one dollar or one item of food for people in need. They give 100% of their donation directly to the local hunger-relief charity of their choice.
More than $100 million has been collected since the movement began in 1990! Help us grow this movement and tackle hunger in America!
The Love Kitchen provides a hot and nutritious meal for anyone who walks through their door from 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday. They proudly serves the White Mountain communities of both Navajo and Apache counties. For many of their guests this is the only meal they will have during the day. Their open door policy has always been in place and invites anyone without question or qualification. Providing a home cooked meal to feed not only their bellies but their souls is what The Love Kitchen strives for daily.
Another heartbeat of their mission is distributing food boxes weekly as food is available. Distribution is on Wednesday's from 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. This service is provided through partner agencies like United Food Bank and Feeding America. And many in our community also hold food drives which is vital to our service.

We have the most generous and loving congregation any church could ask
for. I hope all of you were able to see the fabulous gift bags that were donated to
Child Protective Services of the White Mountains. These gift bags will be
distributed to forty-seven foster children the second week of December.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
Our wish for you is to have a very blessed Christmas filled with love, good
health and happiness.
In God's Love and Ours,
Arlene Kerr, Chairman
