Soup Kitchen Sunday

Soup Kitchen Sunday – Nov. 12 is our fifth annual “Soup Kitchen Sunday”.  We welcome the Soup Kitchen volunteers and supporters who have joined us for today’s service, and we thank them for their support and involvement!  There will be a Church School for the children who are present, starting partway through the service, after Theme Time.  Any visiting children are welcome to go downstairs for Church School at that time.ū
